Just in from a top French mill, this is a wonderful dress weight or shirting weight jacquard, with a gorgeous floral design with an underlying ombre stripe that morphs from color to color. Black is woven throughout to mute the coloration and gives it a beautiful, softer look. The weave is exquisite and the colors are various shades of indigo, turquoise, dusty plum and black (PANTONE 18-4320, 19-3731, 18-1418... are in the vicinity). It has a soft and malleable cottony drape. This fabric is perfect for dresses, shirts, lightweight jacket, skirt, etc. Please test first if you wish to wash at home, or dry clean.
