Silk and Wool Suiting, Vintage Fabric


Silk and Wool Suiting Fabric, stately light Blue, matte.

A vintage piece, ca. 1940’s/50’s, evident in the quality and density.

The classic blend that tailors with ease, perfect for a suit, but also as a dress, gown, pants, jacket, top or coat – medium, dense hand, suiting weight.

50″ wide, made in Italy, vintage stock in wonderful condition.

*We highly recommend that any garment made from this fabric should be lined in our Cotton/Polyester batiste blend.

Price is per Yard.

Stock #: 8231

*This fabric is very old, showing some slight age and fading around the selvedge. We tend to suggest that if you are going to sew this – don’t do it for an overly formal occasion – the blue dye can sometimes fade. That said, people love this fabric, fades and all and we sell it with its natural ombre.

Pattern suggestions:

Butterick Suit, B6933 – semi fitted with a lined collar. Perfect. Also perfect is Butterick, B6901 with a vest top.

Viki Sews also has the Liliana vest – a similar to the vest above, but slightly more tailored.

A-line or pencil skirt would suffice, but would like to see some pleats. Look to Marfy skirt 3349 and combine with jacket 3348 – woah. Also, Simplicity S9712 is a good staple.
