Ribbed Benglaine Fabric, “Tiger King” Print
Ribbed woven bengaline; a remarkable print of Tigers, baby Tigers, explosive flowers, palms and trees in Black and White with varying Greens, Yellows, Pinks, Purples and Blues, Fuchsia, Turquoise, Red and Brown.
Medium weight (268 GSM), somewhat stiff but it will drape. Use it as you would a faille, taffeta, satin or any suiting. Made in France of a high quality 100% Polyester, 58″ wide.
Pattern Suggestions – this fabric is epic and should be treated as such!
For formal wear look to the old faithful Vogue V1723, a loose fitting pullover dress. Also look at the ever intricate flared dress, V1782, also from Vogue.
Blazer would work – perhaps double breasted? or Always, the Jasika Blazer from Closet Core Patterns. What about a big old coat – the Turkish Coat from Folk Lore Sewing is always a big coat we like to lend for inspiration.
Finally, some skirts – McCalls M8005 – “gore” skirt with the raised hem.
Price is per Yard.
