Cloth Edit continues to seek out striking prints that you won't see everywhere. Ravello is another of the gorgeous Japanese cotton voile prints. This floral design is spliced with some lovely geometric moments. It plays with colour and print in fresh ways and contains greens (from fern green, to grass green and olive), oranges (from the palest peach to a striking hue), fairy floss pink and purples (such as heather and mauve), on a crisp white background.
The cloth is not a loose weave like some other voiles. Its 'hand' and drape reminds me of of an organza. It's really unique and would be amazing for statement sleeves and floaty skirts. Of course it will press and behave perfectly in pleats and darts, if you are after something more fitted. You will probably need a lawn slip for skirts. If it's a full skirt, you may not.
For your cloth edit consider: loose tops/blouses/shirts or wrap tops. The fabric is light but holds some shape so consider dresses such as wraps, tunics, and shirt dresses. A full or wrap skirt would also be beautiful.

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 and 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.
