In the current issue of the Threads Magazine (December 2013/January 2014 Issue Number 170) there is a great article by Claire Schaeffer about the LINTON TWEEDS – The Luxury Fabrics Designers Love.
I see pictures of fabulous fabrics posted online by those who participate in the French Jacket sew-along. It happened I had a fabric in my stash to make such jacket but there are a lot of you who still is planning to make the French jacket and is asking where to buy a fabric.
One of the sources is a local fabric store, other fabric market, other online shop. Still you would like to have a quality fabric which is not always easy to access.
Linton Tweeds – renowned as suppliers to Chanel and other prestigious international fashion houses – are perfect for the French jacket. In the online shop you may browse by fabric composition, colour or type.
It is easy to order online however you still are not so sure about the colour and structure. By Linton Tweeds you may order the fabric samples of current Linton Fabrics and Wool Crepe.
I have just received my small package. It was WOW! The structure, the colours, the yarns composition are astonishing. I am now preparing the sheets to place the samples with small description for later references. It is great for the future clients.
You may as well order yarns which could be handy if you are going to make trims for the jacket yourself.
