From a very famous designer, this fantastic Italian wool/metallic fancy tweed suiting is FAR more wonderful in real life! It combines black, white and gold "foil" metallic in a tweedy weave that is perfect for evening or special occasion attire. It's not tightly woven, so depending upon your project, it may require interlining to add body. In its natural state it's soft and drapey with some body, lightweight with a hint of crispness, and the same on both sides. Perfect light suiting weight for jackets, suits, skirts, dresses. Dry cleaning recommended.
