100% Silk Mikado Suiting Fabric, Light Ivory


100% Silk Mikado Twill fabric, in Light Ivory. Mikado is a suiting weight with an elegant twill weave.

This piece in particular is vintage dead stock from an Italian Mill that is no longer in service. We were lucky to be able to buy these up when the mill went out of business.

Mikado is great for structured formal wear; the lustrous finish is subtle but apparent (and elegant) – Made in Italy, 53″ wide.

Mikado is in – seen as one of the more luxurious fabric around today. Mainly we look to you all for the patterns with such glamorous fabrics as these – your gowns, suits and formal wear. That said here are some other pattern suggestions:

We love this for a lined formal flair dress – the Vogue V-1884 would work magic. Another great use would be the Vogue V-1927 double breasted jacket, also the Misses’ gathered Dress by Beaute’ J’adore (ME2016) – a Mimi G Pattern.

Of course this is silk is made out of a bridal color – and we shy away from wedding dress pattern suggestions. We will however add some here as an exception to this rule – Marfy S836 – an Empire Dress “that brings the allure of a diva” – what could go wrong?

Also see Marfy S839 or S849 or the alluring S878.
