We felt this extraordinary amber and bronze stretch satin fabric would be right at home in a mid-century cocktail bar, overlaid with the scent of leather. It’s a fabric that glows in the slightest light. You could of course create an extraordinary top or blouse with this wafting satin – one which had gathered sleeves, long buttoned cuffs and a draping bow – but our reasoning is that it would also make a fabulous statement lining.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our striking black, gold and bronze stretch satin fabric is a lighter-weight polyester satin fabric with a little elastane; just enough to give some ease.
What does this fabric feel like?
This is a very soft fabric, smooth the the touch and comfortable next to the skin.
How does this fabric move?
Our black and bronze stretch satin fabric wafts and drapes beautifully. It hangs in soft folds which billow in a little breeze. You can see how it moves and drapes in this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
We’re proposing that this is a fabric you may well want to use as a lining for a coat or jacket, due to its soft handle, vibrant print design and ease of movement across other fabrics. However if you chose to use it as a blouse, top or lingerie, then its close weave and decisive colour palette mean that it would fulfil those roles without the need for a lining.
What can I make with this fabric?
As a lining, this gold, black and bronze stretch satin fabric would work well with any light-to-medium-weight coating or suiting fabric. It might not have the substance to balance a heavier-weight coating as a lining; if you’re in any doubt then don’t hesitate to check with us.
As a garment in its own right, you could consider a kimono-style robe or a simple top – however we’re still enamoured with the notion of a blouse with ties, for which we suggest Butterick 6378 which has a fabulous choice of sleeve and neckline options.
