Deadstock cotton silk blend has a peachy orange coloured background and is covered in a subtle design that has been created during the weaving process that features animal stripes, polka dots and flowers. This jacquard design has been woven into the fabric using a satin weave, so when the fabric catches the light it really shows off this subtle design. The fabric is covered in printed purple flowers. This fabric has a fluid drape making it ideal for floaty dresses and blouses, such as The Elodie Wrap Dress by Closet Core Patterns or The Wren Blouse by Chalk and Notch.
SECONDS - there is a faint line that runs across the fabric. The line runs parallel to the selvedge and is approximately 38cm from the selvedge. There are also areas on the line where there are very small black marks that occasionally appear. We have tried to photograph the fault as accurately as possible. The fabric has been reduced due to the fault, please ignore the colouring of the faulty photos as these have not been colour edited.
