|designer colored chevrons cotton jacquard|
origin: art-to-wear designer
I met an art-to-wear designer at a trade show recently, and was invited to her studio to sort through some fabrics that she had used in previous seasons! This one really caught my eye---the colors are so pretty and the weight is so versatile. It is an opaque shirting/dress weight with a soft drape with a bit of body, and the jacquard chevron weave is given dimension by the change of colors going across the fabric in a 15.5 horizontal repeat (the stripes run vertically, as shown). Colors include a base of slate gray mixed with blue, turquoise, pink, silver, olive, coral and ginger (PANTONE 17-1501, 18-3945, 17-2520, 16-0421, 17-1418, etc.). Perfect for shirts, tops, tunics, dresses, skirts, etc. So many possibilities for mixing of directional stripes, cutting on the bias, etc. I am sure to "steal" a bit, as I bought quite a lot of yardage! Please test first if you wish to hand wash and hang to dry, or dry clean.
