100% Cotton Seersucker – Classic Oat Stripe - NOW 30% OFF - WAS $11.95 - 1/2 M
When it gets hot, really hot, there is something cooling about Seersucker. This designer / dead stock striped cloth would be the perfect mid-summer dress. Whether you like fit-and-flare, kaftans, tunics, or prefer to opt for a classic shirt-dress style, this will be an easy-wear and ever stylish garment. Team with sandals or sneakers and you are ready for anything. Of course, seersucker isn’t just for summer, and this would be fantastic in a classic shirt, or blouse, replete with frills. Browse the Cloth Edit buttons for some inspiration. The new Shell buttons would look amazing on this. This is a nice weight (not too fine), and you shouldn’t need any lining for skirts. You will just need flesh toned underwear. 148cm wide.
For your cloth edit consider: semi-fitted or looser shirts, blouses, tops and tunics; dresses (eg. wrap, fit and flare, tunic, shirt dresses), skirts (eg. wrap, midi, gathered, pleated). It would be great in pants or shorts also.

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.
