Delicious tones of mouth-watering chocolate, caramel and cream sit perfectly together in this retro tartan style fabric. Caramel beige and camel are super stylish teamed with classic white and dark tan- this fabric is so versatile because you can interpret it in many different ways. The colour combination in this excellent fabric gave us true retro vibes, reminiscent of the fashions from the '60s and seventies or maybe even the '90s?
Chocolate, Caramel & Cream Retro Tartan is woven in a classic twill weave with fine polyester and viscose yarns. The blended yarns produce a suiting weight fabric that is soft and drapey to handle (feels like fine, soft lambswool) yet is stable strong and hardwearing.
Tartan style fabrics have a timeless style and suiting weight fabrics are definitely not just for suits, and tartan, plaids and checks are classics. Create iconic British designer styles with icons such as Viv Westwood and Alexander Mc Queen as your inspiration or choose lifelong country classic styles. Perfect for adding a heritage style to your wardrobe.
Neat blazers and matching skirts, (pencil, pleated - like traditional Kilts or A-line). Trouser lovers make sharp cigar-style trousers or glamorous wide-legged trousers with a retro style. Our The Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers are ideal, add deep turn-ups for a swishy weighted drape quality.
Cinch in your waist with a matching closely fitted Jemima Waistcoat for bombshell glamour and a forever outfit with class! Expand the vintage glamourpuss vibe and create waist-cinching wiggle dresses with tummy flattering pleats over the hips- alternately add peplums and fantail pleats in the back seam.
Look to style icons such as Dita Von Teese for inspiration, Charm Patterns have an excellent range of retro style patterns. We think this retro tartan has very 60,s vibes making it ideal for styles with a nod to that era. Think of the simple silhouettes of Mary Quant A-line dresses, cute pinafore dresses with fun pleats and contrasting white Peter Pan collars, patch pockets and chunky metallic zips.

This fabric has a lovely soft handle and will make a great shirt or top, or a flowy circle skirt for the winter, which is what I'm hoping to make if I can conquer my fear of pattern-matching.
