PRODUCT INFORMATION

This is an unusual, irregular stripe fabric.  It is light weight (voile weight) and perfect for blouses, so think about looser style, gathers and frills.  The fabric falls in folds close to the body, and it’s lovely and fine and can take a lot of gathering.  It has a soft, slightly gauzy hand.  It will feel beautiful next to the skin.  It would be great for more voluminous sleeves, but would also be lovely in a classic shirt style (with ease) with a collar and cuffs.  The black isn’t ‘pitch’ black, but more muted.  This is an excellent quality designer end / dead stock fabric. It is semi-transparent, but flesh underwear should put things right for blouses.  You might need some kind of slip for a skirt.   

For your cloth edit consider:  looser shirts, blouses, tops and tunics; dresses (eg. kaftan, tunic, loose shirt dresses and wrap dresses with some fullness), skirts (eg. wrap, midi and maxi, gathered, pleated). 

We stock so many beautiful indie patterns that would be a perfect match with this cotton.  Here are some suggestions:

Closet Core Patterns – Kalle, Cielo, Kaftan
Folkwear Patterns – Mexico Dress (and Top)
Friday Pattern Co. –  Adrianna Dress (top length would be great), Sagebrush Top, Wilder Gown (top). 
I AM Patterns – Cassiopee, Gaia, Hermes, Jane, Joy, Lucienne
Named Patterns – Helmi (Blouse)
Nina Lee — Bakerloo, Bloomsbury, Park Lane Blouse
Papercut Patterns – Array, Nexus, Sequence.

Cloth Care:

Cotton is an easy care fibre as it is strong when wet, and so it can be machine washed.  Nevertheless, this is a finer fabric, so take come care.  Use a mesh garment bag, use a gentle setting, shake out when wet and place on a hanger to dry (or dry flat).  To prevent fading, wash inside out and dry in the shade.   Cotton can take a hot iron but start on a cooler setting, spot test, and iron on the wrong side. Use a pressing cloth to prevent over ironing ‘shine’.
