Over the summer we took delivery of a group of fabrics from a designer, among which was this stunning pink satin fabric. It’s safe to say that this is the most delightfully fluid and luxurious fabrics we’ve ever had. The satin weave is close and refined and it falls into rounded piles of pink lustrousness in a way that has to be seen and felt to be fully appreciated.
What kind of fabric is this?
The composition of this pink satin fabric is chiefly triacetate, with some polyester content. Triacetate is a cellulose-based fibre which is both washable and static-resistant. Our pink satin fabric has good opacity for its weight; we’d describe it as at least a medium-weight blouse fabric or as leaning towards the lighter-weight end of the medium-weight dress fabric bracket.
What does this fabric feel like?
This pink satin fabric has a beautifully-smooth handle. It feels extremely luxurious and cool against the skin and we think it will be a delight to wear.
How does this fabric move?
Oh, now. For once, we’re speechless. Just watch the video and sigh. It’s what we do every time we find an excuse to play with this exquisite pink satin fabric.
Will I need to line this fabric?
Blouses, tops and tunics won’t require a lining although such is the smoothness of this fabric that any lumps and bumps will be detectable so we’d tactfully suggest that lacy bras probably aren’t what you’d choose as an undergarment. As a dress, a self-lining or full-length slip will help with structure and line – unless of course you choose to use this fabric as lingerie. In which case, wow.
What can I make with this fabric?
Elegantly simple blouses, tops and tunics will be stunning, as will dresses. We suggest draped designs, cut on the cross. And lingerie. Robes, camisoles, seductive nightwear – the world is your pink satin oyster. Bias cut satin skirts are quite a ‘thing’ right now – might we suggest this ‘Canterbury’ Skirt from Style Arc – perhaps under an oversized blazer?
