Solid-hued fabrics are just so versatile, and when brought to you in the form of a classic dress crepe there are endless possibilities; picture classic tea dresses of the '40s. This lightly textured polyester crepe is just the ticket for recreating this style and similarly bespoke designs.
Rich ruby red, as deep and mesmerising as its precious gem namesake. Red can stir emotions, steal the limelight and add warmth to already established ensembles. Use this fabric as a stand-alone piece or combine it with similar weight patterned dress crepes, such as Midnight Prelude (Navy), Midnight Prelude (Black) and Rose Garden Promise.
Ruby Red boasts a lightly textured finish that's perfect for easy-wear and easy-care (non-iron) dresses and so much more. This poly crepe is stable (both length and width-wise) and features a beautifully fluid drape quality. Its crease-resistant properties mean that this fabric is perfect for a multitude of loose and softly flowing styles, forming perfect gathers for floriferous frills and ruffles.
Dresses and tops with soft gathers such as the Megan Nielsen Patterns - Protea Capsule Wardrobe. Create simple summer dresses, with elasticated shirred bodices and fun cropped/Gypsy tops with puffed sleeves for boho styles. Create a wonderfully retro look with a nod to the styles of Ossie Clarke and Celia Birtwell, with solid-coloured crepe panels and added ruffle details alongside the florals for a truly bohemian style.
Ideal for creating flowing dresses, tops, pull-on pants/skirts, kaftans, shirts, jumpsuits and resort wear.
