When these lovely crinkled satin curtain fabrics arrived we thought the red colourway would look amazing as a Gothic dress. The only way to check just how great was to dress up Miss Haversham and see. Laura found Simplicity pattern 2172 and set about recreating this Victorian outfit. As you can see the results are spectacular.
The fabric comes in three colourways – the red and silver shown here plus a duck egg blue colour – and is priced at £9.30 per metre. It is so stunning that we don’t think it will last long, so call in to the shop or contact us if you would like to secure some for your project, whether it’s dressmaking or for the home. One of the staff has already taken some home to make dress curtains. What does the fabric inspire you to make?
