A modern take on suiting, this very different and cleverly woven med/heavy suit-weight fabric has a wonderful texture that is almost double crepe-like, making it very versatile and suitable for a host of super chic styles.
Garnet Red has a deep autumnal hue and is the darkest red rouge tones of its namesake, like the textured dark deep colour with depth like the facetted gemstone.
Garnet Red is woven from a clever blend of viscose & polyester fibres and a touch of elastane that creates a fabric with all the best attributes. A bounce-back stretch on both the length and width makes it ideal for super smart slim-fitting styles, from dresses to blazers & more.
The viscose content produces a lovely reassuring heavy drape quality that will give softer and fuller silhouettes. Combined with hard-wearing added synthetic fibres, this fabric is durable and hard-working for a variety of regular-wear styles. There are a host of possibilities from this wonderfully textured waffle piqué fabric that also has excellent resistance to creasing!
Garnet Red will make the smartest suits with neat blazers (The Blazer - The Avid Seamstress) and slimline super comfy trousers, body-skimming pencil skirts and princess seamed dresses, fit & flare styles from gently flared A-line skirts to peplum and ruffle styles, too.
Create smart casual styles such as bomber jackets with luxe hardware (gold tone zips etc). Garnet Red can be styled in so many different ways - and is also available in two other colour ways French Blue and Marina Navy. Mix & match these colours together for stylish colour-blocking.
Ideal sewing patterns are: Sew Different's Everyday Chic Dress, Tulip Dress and Flounce Dress. For more relaxed styles: Fishermans and Artists Smocks ( Sew Different), sweatshirt styles and simple pop-over tops will look superb in this excellent fabric simply paired with your favourite jeans.
The Megan Nielsen Patterns' Protea Capsule Wardrobe would make perfect examples of pretty full-gathered styles for easy, stunning outfits and so versatile!
I love this fabric! I made a pair of 1940s inspired high waisted trousers and I absolutely love them. The texture gives the fabric a nice weight and drape, but it's still easy to work with and handle. The trousers fit really nicely because of the stretch. I was worried the weight wouldn't be enough for trousers, but it works well.
When sewing this fabric, be careful you don't snag threads and best to use a new needle and sharp pins.
Super fast delivery, good value for money. I love the colour, sewed up really well; made trousers, top and dress.
Garnet as we know is a semi precious stone. And this fabric echos those precious materials. It’s a high quality weave, with a bit of stretch in all directions; but not so much it’s pulling.
It was perfect fort project but the finish really would make a lovely jacket.
Once again, brilliant fabric. Thank you to the Fabworks team.
This is just the right weight for some winter leggings to jeep me warm at home. I love the unusual colour and look forward to making them which can be done in an afternoon. Thank you Fabworks.
A very nice fabric, beautiful colour and a bit stretchy for comfort. I'm looking forward to sewing a light blazer and matching trousers. It was worth paying the customs duties.
