We think it’s always a good thing to have some garments in your wardrobe that you can rely on for elegance, style and a little bit of self-expression, whatever the weather and whatever the occasion. Garments that will work hard for their keep as dresses, separates and more formal suits. Our triple crepe fabrics are wonderful for these demanding roles – and we try to make sure that we’ve always a selection of colourways in our collection. This softly-toned taupe-brown triple crepe fabric sits beautifully with a number of our pink, cream and ivory fabrics. It also provides a fabulous background for more vibrant colours such as teals and acid yellows.
As a triple crepe, it drapes exceptionally well as you would expect. It has enough weight and substance not to highlight every lump and bump it might encounter – and it moves with grace. We’d describe this as either a medium-weight suiting fabric or a heavier-weight dress fabric. As you’d expect it has some mechanical ease across the width and the bias of the fabric. It moves and drapes with elegance as you can see in this video.
Our taupe-brown triple crepe fabric is a bit of a gift for dresses with drape, coat dresses, elegant jackets, skirts and trousers alike. If you’ve a special occasion then this will be a delicious fabric to dress up, in the knowledge that you can keep it as for classic ‘best’ dressing – or decide to get your wear out of it through the season. This taupe-brown triple crepe fabric has good opacity but for a special garment you’ll want to line it to help with structure and movement. It is a polyester cloth but with that comes washability (although possibly not if you’ve lined it!) and durability too.
We’ve sewn lots with our triple crepe fabrics. Alice used this taupe-brown triple crepe fabric to create a pair of Style Arc’s Leah Lounge Pants; they’ve proved to be an elegant stalwart in her wardrobe.
You can find out more about them in her Leah Lounge Pants blog post.
Wash at 30 or 40 degrees – however we recommend spot-or dry-cleaning lined garments. See our Fabric care pages for more information.
