Outback Wife Cotton/Merino Twill. Alys Red. 1/4 metre
This stunning fabric from Cathi Bessell-Browne of Gertrude Made is a fine twill made from a mix of soft cotton and warm merino wool. The resulting fabric is beautifully soft with a medium drape. An ideal candidate for dresses, skirts, pants and light coats - I personally have my eye on The Coat, or The Strand Coat patterns for this fabric. It would be equally stunning made up with patterns such as the Day Dress, Trapeze Dress, or the Rue Dress.
The vintage inspired print has a story to tell - inspired by an amazing Australian outback woman, Alys. You can read her story here
