Ultra Marine suiting is a gorgeous, rich, colour-infused blue - somewhere between lapis and navy. This first-rate wool fabric boasts a matte finish and flat weave. This excellent wool suiting is woven from fine yarns but is not as lightweight as some superfine worsteds.
This gorgeous fabric has a stable handle and some stretch across the width (perhaps from a little added elastane) and a superb and substantial drape quality. It's perfect for a plethora of dressmaking projects!
Ultra Marine is the perfect shade for combining with our True Teal and purple toned fabrics for a beautiful jewel palette. Blues of this tone never date and coordinate perfectly with red and white for nautical or Parisienne-themed outfits. Think Bretton tops and red accessories. Classic blazers and neat capri-style pants are key wardrobe pieces and our Ultra Marine fine suiting is perfect for making up these essential wardrobe staples.
Other fantastic uses include high waisted, pleated trousers, crisp cigar or capri pants and of course all of your casual tailoring needs. Jackets, pencil skirts, trousers etc. Make the most of this fabulous fabric's drape quality and width wise ease by fashioning 1950s style fit and flare dresses or cute skater-style dresses 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 this.
Other suggested uses are simple unlined jackets and coats (Merchant & Mills 'The Foreman'). There are many other patterns available suitable to use with Ultra Marine Fine Wool Flannel, think clean simple lines and unfussy cuts! Visit our suitings section for more hints, tips and uses.
