Who doesn’t love denim? This hard-wearing fabric made popular by Levi Strauss, originally for workwear has become a fashion staple that appears in most wardrobes. Now available in many different weights, finishes, prints and colours!
Our Slate Stretch Denim (9oz) is a superb medium weight denim, woven in a traditional fine twill weave with a fabulous natural weft and dark slate grey double warp. This amazingly soft medium denim boasts its super malleable hand thanks to its mix of fibres. Lyocell is a buttery soft fibre that is made from plant fibres and unlike viscose is created with less impact on the environment. Added elastane gives the cotton, lyocell and mixed fibre blend a useful stretch - perfect for creating comfortable and practical clothing.
Slate Stretch Denim will look incredible when featured with contrasting white top-stitching. Boasting a strong and sturdy, stable handle, (lengthwise) and excellent bounce-back stretch (widthwise). The soft handle means that this fabric is also ideal for drapey styles.
Slate Stretch Denim will make our fabulous The Pattern Stash - Lynsey Dungarees, The Scoop Pinafore Dress. Skirts with an authentic denim utility look, which is oh so stylish. Look to designers like Jasper Conran for inspiration, his S/S 2017 collection was superb! Don't forget everyone's favourite denim key piece - Jeans! Slate Stretch Denim will make the Closet Core - Ginger Jeans, Megan Nielsen - Dawn Jeans and of course all the wonderful denim/utility styles from Merchant and Mills.
Utilise the soft drape of this wonderful denim and create, full drapey and gathered style dresses, from fit and flare styles to pencil dresses with peplums and retro wiggle dresses with a utility style. Shirts and shirt dresses are classic staples and will become key pieces within your wardrobe.
Be bold! You can be your own fashion designer by adding colourful contrasting top-stitching and different kinds of hard-wear; studs, buttons and zips - create your own unique style. For some great, classic designed patterns, take a look at Merchant & Mills, there are so many other excellent patterns available too, we love the Tilly and the Buttons Cleo Pinafore Dress and Rosa Shirt Dress too.
We strongly recommend pre-washing your fabric (separately) before making your garment as there will be some colour rub to this deep dye denim when new.
We also recommend purchasing a little extra to allow for possible shrinkage - common in denim fabrics (and subsequent washing with dark colours only). This excellent denim will fade and wear subtly and beautifully.
