Baby, this shantung is blue! And I don’t mean sad. I mean vibrant! This episode is all about the versatile Baby Blue Polyester Shantung, fashioned into everything from spring jackets to elegant evening gowns. This is the perfect Cinderella dress fabric, ideal for elegant ensembles. In this episode of MoodBoard I get excited about how transitional this fabric is. From fall to spring, casual to couture, this shantung can do it all, and it comes in a variety of colors, too! Lightweight and easy to take care of, this fabric can be seen moving elegantly around the MET gala, or relaxing at a coffee shop while reading The Mood Guide to Fabric and Fashion! This fabric is also ideal for tackling TECH-nique, the Pantone color collection of the year! Mixed with vivacious fuchsias and powerful purples, bring this icy blue into the future. Aside from the color and cleanliness, this shantung is super easy to work with. It’s got a little texture to it, so it doesn’t move around despite its silken feel. This fabulous fabric, as well as a plethora of transitional fabrics, is featured in the August Swatch Box. You’re not a part of it?
