Farthingales Corset Making Supply will soon be adding to their already extensive selection of coutil.
Currently they stock around 25 different coutil fabrics that range from the most basic herring bone weaves to satin, tiny dots and various brocade patterns. The two new coutil fabrics are due to arrive by early August and while they are not new patterns they are new colour combinations.
The "Spot Coutil" is an incredibly durable coutil, very dense and very easy to work with; it's a favorite of several theatres. The new colour is black with tiny charcoal dots; the black is a matte satin weave and the dots are a shiny satin.
The "Rose Brocade Coutil" has been very popular in all the colour variations that Farthingales offers and the new one is matte black with shiny "champagne" coloured roses! Evening wear designers have been buying it to use as a foundation for strapless bodices.
Both of these coutil fabrics are cotton viscose blends.
