An exclusive purchase of devoré fabric in rich black cherry colour. Devoré (also called burnout) is a fabric technique particularly used on velvets, where a mixed-fibre material undergoes a chemical process to dissolve the cellulose fibers to create a semi-transparent pattern against more solidly woven fabric. Devoré comes from the French verb dévorer, meaning literally to devour.
This particular black cherry devoré fabric has a black sheer background has then been overprinted with rose-gold feathers. The whole effect is quite stunning. Use this limited edition devoré as the cup cover for the new Ruby bra pattern or as any cup cover over foam. Because the fabric is actually a woven fabric rather than a knit (like you are used to using) we recommend that you cut it using the bias grain as the DoGS. That will allow the fabric to have a bit of stretch while covering cut and sew foam.
Of course if you uses the Black Cherry Devoré fabric for garments other than bras, use it exactly the way you would use a woven. The drapiness of the fabric will impress you. It is very silky feeling and drapes extremely well. It is perfect for club wear or sheer tops. A couple of metres could be hemmed around the edges for an impressive dinner wrap, providing a bit of coverage on cool summer evenings.
We’ve been thinking of other ideas for this fabric and one idea that came up, was to use it for a corset. Yes, it could be used for a corset or waist cincher provided there was a sturdy layer of coutil or corset lining underneath. In fact, it would lend itself to period costumes and accessories, for those customers who do re-enactments or love vintage wear (like we do)
The Black Cherry Devoré fabric was a special purchase and as such, is a limited edition fabric for us. At this price, our stock won’t last long. Remember – when it is gone – like the fabric background…it is gone forever.
