Tawny's Sunday Best - Four Pointed Star Tweed

per half metre
Fabric Code: A4d27

Tawny's Sunday Best is a beautifully soft and textured basket weave style, medium weight wool blend tweed fabric. Woven in a fabulous four-pointed star weave (similar to houndstooth but more striking) from a clever combination of delightful melange yarns in complementary brown, beige and cream tones (like the plumage of Tawny owls) to produce a texturally and visually stunning fabric. Lovers of neutral classics will adore the rich chocolate, cream and caramel hues in this superb fabric.

There's certainly a quirky and retro British tweed style about this first-rate fabric. Garments made in this stunner will be so chic, very designer Chanel style, true classics!

Tawny's Sunday Best boasts good stability width and lengthwise, plus gentle ease across the bias which provides an excellent soft and sumptuous drape that feels wonderful. 

Emphasise the '60s style of this first-rate fabric by constructing neat Chanel style suits, A-line dresses, double-breasted coat dresses, spring and summer coats and jackets. If '60s vintage style clothing isn't for you then simply extend the hemlines and you immediately enter a different era in style, '80 & '90s  styles can easily be achieved by a few simple tweaks. Add some gold buttons for a more modern style and add chunky cream or caramel-hued buttons for the true vintage look.

For something, a little different and very stylish make Stitchless TV's Sculptural Bucket Coat. When made in a fabric of type similar to Tawny's Sunday Best you will have a wonderful summer-weight coat, simply bind the seams with coordinating beige or brown-hued bias binding. Tawny's Sunday Best will also make ideal coatigans and cardigan styles, just bind the seams for a flawless finish.

Make fabulous matching accessories such as bags, hats and caps. Wouldn't a Baker boy cap with a coordinating covered button at the top look perfect with your sixties inspired makes?

If dressmaking isn't for you then simple soft furnishings such as throws and cushions will be fabulous in Tawny's Sunday Best, hand fray the edges for a professional finish.
