Fabric Feature Of The Week - Double Agent Scuba/Neoprene Fabric

When I spotted this very cool scuba/neoprene fabric on our last overseas buying trip, the beautiful images I'd seen on Chiara Ferragni's blog - Blonde Salad - immediately popped into my head. I couldn't resist and had to grab it! 



Double Agent  is a tangerine/red polyester/nylon blend with a black backing which gives the fabric a soft padded texture and also allows for raw edges and outer seams to eliminate bulk. This fabric is also available in a bright turquoise colourway with a navy backing (Two Blue Wonder). These fabrics are perfect for jackets similar to this boxy style or tops like this simple version. 


For a jacket style similar to the above (source unknown), a cropped version of Vogue 8794 (minus the pockets) would look fantastic and keep the winter chills away!

  2. The combination of black with orange is really cool. I studied fashion design and I'm very creative when it comes to making my own pieces of clothing and accessories and I know the choice of fabrics is an essential part of the whole process. Looking at the pictures what immediately came to my mind was my favorite fabric store called King Textiles here in Toronto where I usually find everything I need to design my own clothes and honestly the next pieces in my collection will definitely be inspired by the outfit shown in these pictures. :)
