Deal of the Day - Silk /Linen Blend Shantung 25% off & Tropical Worsted Wool Suiting 30% off

April 21, 2010

The Deal of the Day for April 23rd is 25% off Silk/Linen Blend Shantung fabric and 30% off Tropical Worsted Wool Suiting fabric. Oh, where to begin...let me start with the wool. Tropical Worsted Wool suiting is a light weight suiting with a very smooth hand. Worsted means the wool has been combed straight and woven into fabric. Fine mens' suits are typically made from this fabric for warmer climates and hotter temperatures. What does this mean for all the women out there? It's fabulous fabric for trousers, pencil skirts, jackets, dresses, anything that can use a little tailoring and a classic finish. Check out the video for more details.

Now, the other deal of the weekend is a fantastic fabric that i have never seen before. the Silk/Linen Blend Shantung has a lot of body and is lighter weight. Lightweight draperies, stunning pillows and duvets are my first thought. The body this fabric has will create large undulating folds on the rod. Then, of course, I figure out how to wear it. I have a couple pattern suggestions here. The Sewing Workshop and Shapes patterns are perfect because they are architecturally inspired shapes. They have clean simple lines that a fabric with body will look best in.
