Alpine Sky is a top-notch, Italian wool double crepe that oozes quality! You can tell a quality product when the fabric features a woven logo selvedge. This outstanding beauty came from a company that made garments for top high street ladies wear designers.

Alpine Sky, inspired by cool blue skies over the snow-clad Italian Alps. This classic pastel blue is perfect for a chic, cool-toned, winter-inspired style or team with other pastels for the prettiest spring ensembles. The perfect colour for elegant feminine attire, as fresh as an Alpine breeze.

This delectable double, dress crepe has a classic crepe feel (finely grainy). It is malleable with a sumptuous and heavy drape, excellent resistance to creases, stable and easy to sew. There is slight ease across the width due to the crimped yarns. This incredible quality double crepe boasts excellent opacity thanks to its double construction. Woven from fine 100% virgin wool crimped yarn is super close weave construction. This highly revered fabric (that never dates) can be used for a plethora of timeless designs.

Wool crepe of this quality is hard to find because it is so versatile (and highly sought after), its redeeming qualities of temperature-regulating warmth, excellent drape and resistance to creases, good stability and heavyweight, mean there are a plethora of things you will want to make, from classic shift dresses to boxy kimono-style jackets and edgy contemporary styles.

We think that Alpine Sky will make elegant occasion wear; mother of the bride outfits such as Vogue - V9266 will look flawless and super stylish. The figure-skimming dress and matching bolero are ideal for this double dress crepe and perfect for spring weddings. Add some beaded embellishments for a bespoke touch.

Other classic styles are: shift dresses, angular A-line '60s inspired dresses, tailored pencil skirts and matching cropped 'Chanel style' jackets. For something a little different, shirt dresses or loose long line sleeveless waistcoats made in this dreamy Alpine Sky fabric will become essential key pieces. If dresses and skirts aren't for you, Alpine Sky will also make the most stylish pleat fronted trousers The Pattern Stash - Cordelia Trousers - without the paper bag to eliminate bulk, or slimline cigar pants/trousers with a matching blazer too. Choose classic cuts for wardrobe keepers, you will never tire of.

Combine the other colour choices of Double Crepe Italian Wool superb colour-blocked styles like Sew Different's - Colour Block Dress Pattern.
