Tropical Leaves

£1.00
per metre
Fabric Code: G4e12

This featherweight silk chiffon is adorned with stylised leaves on a dusky pink background and has a soft lined finish. The colours in Tropical Leaves include dark green, pistachio green, bitter chocolate and duck egg blue, making a sophisticated fabric with a lightweight drape which will need an expert touch.

Experienced dressmakers will find that Tropical Leaves will drape, gather and tuck beautifully; beginners may want to make a scarf (and practise their French seams) before taking on a bigger project.

This fabric will make elegant blouses and tops, or use it for sleeves only to add a patterned element to a plain bodice. Work in some flounces and layer it over a fine jersey, silk satin or fine cotton lawn to create 1970s style gypsy dresses. Make a sheath dress in a medium or heavyweight jersey then drape Tropical Leaves across it. You could also use it for cool kaftans and sarong skirts.
