This is something so beautiful about this taffeta fabric we couldn’t wait to share it with you, dear Thread Heads!

The manufacturer calls this colour Soft Cinnamon because of its warmth and subtle pinkish-tannish-salmony tone (er, yes, we realise ‘salmony’ isn’t really a word!).

When you look closely at how this fabric was created, you can see a deep rosy thread woven with soft, golden tan colour creating a soft, sumptuous shade of fab-u-lous!

Taffeta always reminds me of the lovely dresses my mother had from her pre-6 children days in the 1950s.  She clearly had a thing for taffeta as she kept hold of the dresses even though they weren’t in style in the 60s and early 70s.  Eventually they ended up as charity donations, but oh how I wish she had kept hold of them a bit longer when I was into the retro rock-a-billy of the 1980s!

The iridescence in this fabric is lovely and so flattering for mixing with other colours!

We see stunning dresses with fitted bodices and full, flowing, gathered skirts!  Dress it up for night’s out and special events or add a cardigan to keep it more casually elegant.

Please share a pic or two of your completed sewing project with this lovely taffeta fabric!  We would love to see it and to share it with others via our blog or newsletter to inspire others to have a go at creating something beautiful!

Recommended washing instructions:  It is recommended to dry clean taffeta so as not to diminish the unique qualities of the fabric.  You may want to try snipping a small sample of your fabric and hand washing it in cold water, line drying it and then using a cool iron on the reverse of the fabric to remove any wrinkles.

Thread Head Fabrics recommends you pre-wash your fabric before you begin your sewing project as all fabric has the potential to shrink slightly when washed.
