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.

57% Cotton 36% Silk 7% Metallic – ‘Cameo’ Pale Pink and Silver Shirting

This fabric seems to reflect the delicacy of a grandmother’s precious brooch, but this cloth has one foot in two camps: the Sunday best of yesteryear, and the confident use of the special and unique in everyday life.  This is a beautiful designer fabric, but there is something very flexible about it.  It could be a beautiful iteration of your favourite shirt pattern (for work or play), or could confidently sit at a wedding dinner.   It’s of the calibre of evening design, but could be the flowing dress you put on for drinks while on holiday.  I can see it pairing beautifully with suits, or unleashed and allowed to move. A Victorian inspired blouse would be sublime.  Team it with black and navy (such as our Flaneur stretch woven), or our Necessary Organic Hemp and Cotton Denim, or any number of the linens such as Burleigh, Jam Tart, Fedora, Into the Blue, Pecan Pie, and the earth bound Takumi.  Try something a little unexpected with the Legally Plaid Linen, or other new Cloth Edit additions like the Dover Plaid, and The Glen Check.  Teaming it with the phenomenal ‘Spring is Sprung’ linen would also be a step outside the box.  I hope you love creating with this too.  You will need to use a light lawn or silk lining for skirts.  Natural undergarments should be all you need for tops, but you may want to line or wear a camisole under a bodice. 

For your cloth edit:  Envisage blouses with a ruffle collar, or oversized collars à la Ganni.   Make your tried and true pussy bow blouse or shirt, and rummage through your vintage patterns for a maxi wrap skirt or Kaftan.   Think about your autumn sewing and incorporating it with your skirts, trousers and jackets.  The possibilities . . .

Cloth Care:

The general advice is to Dry Clean only.  Hand wash at your own risk.  If you risk hand-washing, use a gentle detergent such as a baby shampoo or specialist silk detergent as the chemicals and bleach in regular washing liquids and powders will damage the cloth and make it dull.  If hand washing use cool water.  Hot water is harmful to the fibre.  Wash inside out and gently move around the cloth or garment in soapy water.  You can let it soak for a few minutes.  Rinse by gently holding the cloth or garment in your hands until the water runs clear.  Do not bleach, wring, or tumble dry. Do not spot clean silk.  Wash colours separately.   Dry flat in shade as the sun can yellow lighten colours.  Use a warm iron and spot test.
