This fabric is the product of a hunt. I had seen a woman looking fab in this sensational green leaves top while she was at the stop light next to me. I could see the “Just Cavalli” signature in the fabric. Hence the hunt began.
I trawled the silk sections of a number of stores and asked widely.
Finally I turned over this small bolt and I don’t know if this store actually knew they had this as I’d already asked after it a couple of times.
It is a beauty. A lot of Cavalli fabrics can be a bit gaudy but that studio also comes up with some of the most coveted too. This is a small-ish length because it was expensive, so I guess the 145cm x 1.6 metre length with determine what you make. I always saw this as some sort of floaty top. It is also a very delicate fabric, a gauze-type silk, so it probably needs experienced hands. I’d opt for something with a few seams, a few gathers to show off the diaphanous quality.
In the images below, I’ve shown the fabric with and without an under fabric. In the image bottom left, you’ll see a light lime silk georgette that I placed underneath the fabric. This worked quite well, enough ‘green’ to underpin the Cavalli silk, but not too bright to dominate it. If you need an under piece, I can probably let go of a bit of this fabric too.
The price for this fabric is $39 a metre/$62.50 for the piece.
I can post this in the smallest satchel (with tracking) at $9.40. Please see here for full details on payment and posting. If interested, please click on the email below; fabric details will appear automatically and I will get back to you asap. (Australia delivery only thanks).
