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 – Navy and White Madras Check

This is one of the great designer Checks/Tartans we have in stock.  This has a gorgeous Madras weave shirting.  It is perfect for summer tops and shirt dresses, but of course would be a great classic shirt for work, or an oversized shirt for any time.  The fabric is a bit sheer in the white portions of the design, but this isn’t going to be a problem for shirts, tops, and blouses.  If there is some fullness in the skirt (such as an A-line shirt dress) then you would be fine without a lining and with natural toned undergarments.  While this would be perfect for simple designs, it would also be beautiful with ruffles and gathers.   

For your cloth edit consider:  shirts, loose tops, tunics and more semi-fitted shirts, dresses (eg. wrap, tunic, shirt dresses), skirts (eg. wrap, maxi, gathered, pleated).

Cloth Care:

Cotton can generally be machine washed and tumble dried without any problems.  Wash colours separately.   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.  Conduct a spot test. Cotton is dry cleanable.
