This is part of an AMAZING and incredibly well-priced collection of fabrics from C@lvin K. and R@lph L. that I purchased as soon as it became available. This fabric is absolutely stunning--far more wonderful in real life! It's got an intricately-pleated surface texture with a swirling, grainy design, and the pleats will expand VERTICALLY with perfect recovery (so the pleats are permanent, and your garment should probably be cut so that the length goes from selvedge to selvedge). Opaque with drape and body, this is an evening/special occasion/formalwear fabric that invites creativity and will turn heads! The color is a pearly, reflective white. Best for body-conscious tops, jackets, tunics, dresses and gowns. Dry cleaning recommended.
This fabric is absolutely stunning--far more wonderful in real life! It's got an intricately-pleated surface texture with a swirling, grainy design. The "pleats" are achieved through a matelasse weave and the fabric has a crisper drape similar to organza (but it's not as sheer). This is a special occasion beauty, taking your basic black wardrobe up a notch! Only 4 yards available from a designer sample room. Elegant, super sophisticated, exquisite. Sells for $49.00/yd in New York. Perfect for architectural jackets, trim, or for any design that requires a fabric that can be "sculpted". Dry clean only.
