100% Silk Bottom Weight Woven Fabric, Navy Blue


100% Silk Suiting fabric, Navy Blue; bottom weight with an elegant hand – resembles the heft of a lighter peau de soie, smooth weave.

Substantial, supple and soft.

Lovely for pants, dress/skirt or suit/jacket or gown – 45″ wide. Dead Stock from a designer in NYC.

A few pattern suggestions, but we want to emphasize that this fabric is more formal so one really shouldn’t count it for everyday wear. It’s hefty and durable enough, but save it for a most special occasions. We know it would be a lovely gown but we like to leave gown patterns to the imagination of the person making it.

The Modern Sewing Co. Potter’s Jacket would great with this sort of heavy but not overwhelming weave.

For a skirt, we love the weight for Butterick, PDB6836 a straight skirt. Line it with our Cotton/Poly batiste lining. Also look at the easy McCalls M8005 – option C.

We could see a suit, Butterick B6933 or some sort of variation of that. Also so many types of pants; a cuff would be great – The Worker’s Trouser again from Modern Sewing Co. – or – Marfy Pattern no. 1982
