100% Japanese Cotton – Cressida Blue *NEW*
- 144-5cm Wide
The trio of 'Cressida' Japanese Cotton botanical prints are a delightful scale for blouses and dresses. Rather than beautiful sprays of flowers, Cressida features stems of gorgeous leaves. The Blue colourway has a base that sits between a navy and royal blue. It looks sensational with denim, neutrals and whites. The leaves feature autumnal tones, but include a lovely balance of cooler pinks. It is a dream.
The base cloth has a Uri Japanese 'jacquard' effect applied to it, and when printed this gives an interesting dimension to the design. The print is not directional. It is a very pleasing 144-5cm wide, which is much wider than most Japanese cottons.
This cloth is perfect for staying cool in summer, but would be a beautiful shirt or blouse at any time of year. The sections of fabric with no 'jacquard' application are more transparent, but this is detracted by the print and overall effect. You may want to line skirts. For tops you may find that all you need are flesh toned undergarments or a cami.

While cotton can generally be machine washed and tumble dried without any problem, this is a lightweight and delicate fabric, so take more care of the cloth/garment, so hand wash or use a short / delicate cycle and place inside a mesh washing bag. 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. Tumble drying will shorten the life of the garment, and potentially damage the jacquard effect. Do Not Tumble 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.
