A wardrobe full of elegant and sophisticated styles are waiting to be created from this vibrant orange/red sateen. Made from cool, breathable viscose fine yarns, into a smooth and silky sateen with a matte reverse (similar to a satin backed crepe) and deliciously heavy drape quality. This fabric is so smooth and silky and has an air of elegance that elevates it way above a simple satin.
Chili Pepper is stable lengthwise, has some ease across the width, boasts a sumptuous, heavy drape quality and has good bias ease.
Let this fabric do the work for you and create striking, elegant separates and stand alone pieces. Start with simple elastic-waisted skirts and wide-legged trousers such as palazzo pants and culottes. For a sleeker silhouette add a facing to the waistline. Easy make tops; try T-shirt styles, boat neck and cowl neck dolman sleeve styles. For stylish dresses choose maxi dresses and midi dresses with simple Bardot style tops.
For more dramatic styles choose Grecian dresses with deep plunging necklines, perfect for summer parties and special occasions. '70s style midi dresses with panelled skirts, deep cuffed full sleeves and gathered bodices will also look superb made up in this wow fabric! This cool and sophisticated fabric will also make stylish jumpsuits and playsuits too.

This fiery red satin is truly a showstopper! It has a heavy drape and a matt reverse and I think I will use both sides in a pair of wide flowy,high waisted trousers for the autumn.
