This visually stunning, lightweight, high quality satin was originally created for a renowned British ladies and menswear designer famous for their fine occasion wear with quirky and elegant styles; inspired by history and the natural world. We decided to name this fabric SOS; as an acronym that stands for Special Occasion Satin, referencing this particular fabric and its sister fabrics in the collection.

Steal a Glimpse is a finely woven lightweight polyester satin twill with a subtle printed design of antique binoculars. The antique lithographic style binoculars (in black) sit perfectly upon the background of rich ruby port, fit for a Victorian gentleman. This quirky design repeats in a uniform manner with seriously smart style. The clever design and rich colour will appeal to both gents and ladies looking to make stylish and luxurious clothing and accessories.
Costume makers will love Steal a Glimpse, it's ideal for Steam Punk enthusiasts, as well as bird watchers and country enthusiasts too! Team with our Yorkshire Tweeds for a winning combination.
Boasting a super soft, silky feel and subtle sheen, you would be forgiven for thinking this was silk. This first rate satin has a sumptuous hand which is stable width and lengthwise with a delicious drape. All you have to decide now is what to make...
Steal a Glimpse will of course make stunning occasion wear pieces; dresses with drape & gathered details, bow tie blouses & dresses, cowl necked shift dresses, simple dolman sleeved tops and quick-make slashed-neck scarf style tops will all add a hint of luxury to a simple jeans and top outfit. Take this elegant wonder and create dramatic '70s inspired puffed full-sleeve shirts with deep cuffs and matching cover buttons. Extend this style into gathered tiered-skirted dresses and wear with statement boots for a fabulous A/W occasion wear piece.
Spoil yourself or someone special and create stylish and sumptuous traditional pyjamas with coordinating piped collars and pocket tops. Or the prettiest camisole and shorts set with coordinating lace and matching kimono robe.
Steal a Glimpse will also make a statement lining for your bespoke woollen jackets, waistcoats (and statement waistcoat backs) and coats. You won’t be able to resist showing people your wonderful lining! Create simple cravats, scarves, headbands and luxe accessories to match.
