Spring Blossom - Fancy Tweed Jacquard This classic cream confection is a wonderfully textured fabric with more than a hint of a certain female French designer famed for her classic skirt and jacket ensembles.
Spring Blossom is the colour of fresh natural white or the palest cream first spring blossom to appear on the trees. Lift your spirits with this fresh classic-toned fabric and get ready for the spring-summer season.
Spring Blossom boasts a lightly textured irregular and unique look and feel, thanks to its combination of yarns - from superfine cotton to linen look and slightly slubby to heavier brushed- tweed yarns with a demi boucle/slub texture.
The clever jacquard woven design features fine sateen woven blossoms against textured horizontal slubbed areas. This characteristic style is iconic, and certain Parisian Maisons de Couture are world-renowned for this style of fabric in their designs.
The fabric has a lovely soft cotton feel that's cool and comfortable, stable and has a soft medium weight drape too. This kind of fabric is prone to fraying but a quality lining will help as will neatening your seams with overclocking or binding. The frayed edges do make suitably bespoke trims when placed alongside velvet ribbon or fancy braids.
What's stopping you from creating classic collarless French couture-style jackets and matching neat pencil skirts and shift dresses? Use alongside a lightweight sweatshirt fabric or Ponte de Roma and create feature front tops with a luxe designer style.
Create matching accessories, hats, caps and bags to channel your inner couture style.

I've just washed this fabric on a wool cycle and line dried it. The only crease was from the line and that has fallen out with a cool iron. I can't wait to make this into a garment.
