Texture Magic Tuesday/ Red Silk Coat

When we teach at trade shows I often like to wear clothing made with Superior Threads products. I feel this is a nice way to give you ideas on the use of our threads and notions.
My friend Lorraine, of Lorraine Torrence Designs wanted to see how Texture Magic would work up in one of her new patterns.
Lorraine has won numerous awards in the AQS Fashion Show and has judged that show and other Wearable Arts Shows.

Texture Magic is very compatible to use in clothing. This coat was made with red Dupioni silk purchased from Lorraine.

I used Ruby #130 Glitter thread with #627 BottomLine in the bobbin.

One of the nice things about working with Texture Magic is that it acts like an interfacing, so no additional interfacing is needed.


  1. That is beautiful. I totally see a black coat with Texture Magic on the cuffs, bottom edge and lapels.

  2. I have forwarded this blog to a fabric store here in MA I called on that caters to the garment industry. They loved it, but had a hard time envisioning how to present it to their customers (mostly web based business) Thanks so much for the lovely example of using TM in a garment. Mary (TM Rep in MA)

  3. This is great. Can you tell us what the pattern is?
