Regular price $10.00 per half-yard ($20.00/yd.) Sale

3.5 yards left

Please note: fabrics are sold in HALF YARDS, with a minimum order of 2 half yards (i.e. one yard minimum).

Also Please Note: this fabric is 54 inches wide, but there is a series of small water marks along one selvage that extend in 4 inches, so it is priced accordingly.

Oh. My. Goodness!!!! This is STUNNING! This is used in formalwear that sells in top boutiques for hundreds of dollars. Make your own with a pattern like Vogue 1542 by Patricia Keay. If separates are more your style, you can make a fabulous pair of cigarette pants using Lekala S2001.

A note about Silk Dupioni - I know silk scares a lot of people. But dupioni is probably one of the easiest fabrics to work with. It doesn't slide as much as other types of silk, and you can even wash it! It will lose its luster and soften up considerably if you machine wash and dry it. You must pre-shrink it if you want to throw it in the dryer, but this is a very forgiving fabric, so have fun with it!
