Why have satin when you can have the finest cool Turkish cotton sateen? This shirt-weight lustrous cotton fabric will elevate your shirt, and blouse making, taking it from shipshape to the finest aesthetic.


This finely woven cotton sateen features a dreamy deep blue-black tone with a silken lustre like the finest black Tahitian pearl. A fabulously versatile darkest navy hue, that will make key pieces and statement pieces you will adore.


Inky Pearl has the most wonderful soft hand and stunning subtle sheen which is displayed when presented to the light and arranged into soft folds and gathers. A stable hand and just enough width-wise stretch make it perfect for slim-fit shirts!

Garment Suggestions:

Inky Pearl will make the most sophisticated tailored fitted men's and ladies' shirts and blouses, traditional smocked and embroidered dresses with boho Frida Kahlo style. Or simply classic shirt dresses with military-style pockets and epaulettes. Perfect for lightweight summer dresses and skirts: pleats, gathers and tucks will all fall beautifully.

The Megan Nielsen Patterns - Protea Capsule Wardrobe would make perfect examples of pretty full-gathered styles for easy, stunning outfits and so versatile!
