More Fabrics for September 2009

Gorgeous tropical weight Italian wool/lycra blends to transition you into fall. The added bonus is the classic neutral colors that will stand the test of fashion time!

97% Wool 3% Lyca
The right side of this fabric has a pebble-like feel with a nice, drapey hand. An ivory background with 1/8" houndstooth pattern, this would work well for jackets, pleated waistline on skirts and dress.

98% Wool 2% Lycra
This is a coffee bean brown wool crepe with ivory flecks and an ivory 2 x 2-3/4" plaid. Make a jacket, wide leg pants or a bias cut skirt.

97% Wool 3% Lycra
This will take you from the office to cocktails. The fabric has an interesting black background with a brown twill thread and a pearlized white pinstripe. Perfect for a suit or sheath dress.
