Cross Into The Blue is a beautiful, fine 100% wool worsted suiting fabric. A subtle melange of blue and grey yarns in this excellent fine worsted produce a subtle and interesting sketchy effect which is the ideal base to showcase the fine windowpane overcheck (in white). With a shadow check alongside, Cross Into The Blue has the appearance of fine running stitches which elevates this suiting from an otherwise plain airforce blue into something more interesting. Its versatile construction makes for a lightweight handle that's soft, stable and has a stunning drape quality.
Its classic windowpane overcheck is another subtle and smart addition, creating an effortless elegance, perfect for creating ensembles you'll breeze through life in!
Soft worsteds like Cross Into The Blue will drape and gather beautifully, so go ahead and create smart and feminine shirt dresses. 1940's style dresses, circle skirts and fit and flare dresses would all look superb too. Take a look at our suiting information online for even more ideas!
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 our Cross Into The Blue.
