This yarn-dyed suiting has a metallic stripe woven in. There's also a subtle black-on-black stripe. The suiting is 100% synthetic with a small amount of lengthwise stretch and excellent recovery. No crosswise stretch. This is not a typo! There isn't any crosswise stretch. This fabric is perfect for a fitted skirt such as Sew House Seven's Alberta Street pencil skirt or Itch to Stitch's Quebec skirt.
