Extra wide fabric, made for the most famous French couture house. Base fabric is a black boucle, with ivory strands running through the fabric. I have tried to arrange one picture to show the possibilities for using either side, as well as making self trim using the selvages. Fabric is a substantial weight cotton, making this a great multi season choice. This is a great fabric for a variety of applications-fashion, home dec, afghans,etc. What I love about this fabric is the great timeless and versatile quality it has. It's stylish, but not trendy, so it will never go out of style. It can be used for a lot of styles-jackets, drapey cardigans, capes, suits, dresses...any application calling for a nice weight, non sheer fabric. The list goes on and on. The cost of yardage is $45 per yard, and the price quoted for shipping is approximate. If the cost of shipping is less, I will refund the difference through PayPal.
