PRODUCT INFORMATION
This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (= .5m; ½ m).    For example, if you would like 2.5m, then enter the quantity ‘5’.  As Cloth Edit only receives limited quantities of each fabric, err on the side of caution when ordering.   Take into account any additional length etc.
Every effort has been made to present the fabric as accurately as possible.  If the precise colour, weight and feel of the fabric is important for your decision, and the photos aren’t giving you enough detail, the best option to eliminate disappointment is to use the Swatch Service.  Each Swatch is .50c.  See under the 'About' tab for more details. 

100% Cotton Black Dobby Suiting

This is a more structured fabric that is perfect for suiting.  It doesn’t have ‘drape’, and is perfect for fitted to semi-fitted jackets, boxy tops, straight or A-Line skirts, skirts with a couple of pleats, or pants.  There is no stretch so it will hold its shape well.  This would be a great cloth to base a work wardrobe on, and would be a bit more unexpected teamed with the ‘Legally Plaid’, ‘The Glen Check’, and the ‘Dover Plaid’ Linens.  The ‘Eleganza’, ‘Paloma X’ and ‘Lucia’s Garland’ silks would also be a beautiful contrast to the more structured fabric. Don’t overlook the Off White and Black Japanese ‘Blossom’ jacquards to also play up the contrasts in texture.  Sublime . . .

For your cloth edit consider:  boxy tops, sheath dress, fit and flare dress, pants or shorts, skirts (eg. A Line, straight, a few pleats), or even a great tote bag. 

Some indie pattern suggestions are:

  • Closet Core Patterns: Fiore skirt, Jenny overalls and trousers, Pietra shorts and trousers, Sienna jacket.
  • I AM Patterns: Armor pants
  • In The Folds: Darlow pants
  • Papercut Patterns: Axis skirt, Stacker jacket

Cloth Care:

Cotton is an easy care fibre as it is strong when wet.  Cotton can be machine washed and tumble dried without any problems.  Wash colours separately.   After the initial pre-washing, and any tumble drying of the fabric (if is your preference), the finished garment will last longer and look better if it is shaken out when wet, and placed on a hanger to dry.  To prevent fading, wash inside out and dry in the shade.   Cotton needs a warm to hot iron.  Cotton is dry cleanable.
