Sapphire Sketchy Check - Fine Suiting is a first rate wool blend suiting, woven from a combination of the finest quality yarns. This gem has not only wool in its composition, but a touch of silk and linen too! Boasting a stable handle and a lightly textured soft feel, this lightweight breathable suiting (similar to a tropical suit weight) has an amazingly soft drape quality and barely creases! Perfect for warmer climates where you still need that smart attire.
It's versatile palette of sapphire blues is accentuated by a small sketchy subtle overcheck. This design feature carries the fine slubby linen and silk yarn that gives the sketched appearance. The combination of precious multi tonal blues makes for a smart yet interesting style with excellent versatility.
Perfect for fashioning smart jackets and waistcoats that will look great teamed with classic white shirts, tan brogues and jeans. This clever summer suiting will of course make the finest suits for stylish gents and ladies. Sapphire Sketchy Check is perfect for shirt-style dresses and shirt-waister styles with a vintage vibe.
If suit making isn't your forte, fear not! Put this superb fabric to use for less formal, but equally smart outfits, such as shirts, tunics, pinafore dresses and skirts too. The Merchant & Mills 'Shirt Dress' and 'Trapeze Dress' will look stunning in this fabric. There's also a simple drawstring-waist trouser pattern too (The 101 Trouser'), which will work perfectly with Sapphire - Sketchy Check - Fine Suiting.
