Colour:

Linen & Cotton Chambray - Monaco Stripes is just as its name suggests a fabulously soft (almost washed and worn), cool, breathable linen and cotton blend fabric, woven in jaunty seaside stripes from a combination of fresh white, mid denim blue, tangerine and gold yarns (on the warp) and classic white on the weft. The combination creates fabulous sketchy melange stripes with the look of chambray. 

Monaco Stripes may remind you of our previous striped linen Seaside Stripes - Chambray Style, using the same colourway but with a different stripe arrangement, this is the other sibling fabric of Cote D'Azur Stripes.

Properties:

Like its predecessor, this striped wonder is stable, soft and has the feel of a favourite linen shirt. This light (but not flimsy) relaxed chambray style fabric will form crisp details (with a little light interfacing), on collars and cuffs. Used in quantity it will form feminine gathers, pleats, pin-tucks and ruffles. So all you have to do is decide what to make.

This blended fabric gives you the benefits of both wonderful natural fibres. Cotton blended with linen produces a softer, finer fabric which results in fewer creases when worn, which in turn makes it easier to iron. 

Garment Suggestions:

Soft, breathable and oh so comfortable you will want to make a wardrobe full of key pieces for a superb, summer layered-chic linen look. Its lightweight and soft drape make it the ideal candidate for a plethora of uses from the stylish to the practical.

Create '90s inspired button front summer dresses like Closet Core's Fiona Dress or a fabulous directional striped detail dress like V1743 (using all three-striped fabrics). Pantsuits with longline sleeveless shirts and wide-legged trousers are also a fabulously chic "Riviera" (TV Series) style perfect for those hot summer days.

Put Monaco Stripes to use for simple boat-necked tops and pretty blouses, it's also perfect for creating layering garments such as vest tops, drapey tunics and pinafore dresses. Heavily pleated culottes and shorts will look superb in this uplifting fabric.
