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. 

97% Cotton 3% Spandex – Abstract Watercolour Floral

This is as soft and smooth as Liberty Tana Lawn, with bonus bit of stretch.  Light weight stretch wovens are hard to find, but they are so perfect for fitting wrap dresses and tops, and for giving you some room to move.  This is a unique large scale floral print, with a lovely range of pinks and browns alongside splashes of cream and tomato red, on a white background.  This is a designer overstock, and I can see it in beautiful dresses, but the print isn’t too large for a top.  Play around with the pattern pieces to get those pink flowers in the perfect spot ;-).  This will be heavenly to wear.  Team it with our organic hemp and cotton Necessary Denim, or one our linens, such as Burleigh White, Fedora or Takumi.  The fabric is light and a bit sheer due to the light background, but this isn’t going to be a problem for most tops.  You may need a light lawn lining for skirts.  While this would be perfect for simple designs, it would also be beautiful with ruffles and gathers.      

For your cloth edit consider:  shirts, blouses, tops, tunics, dresses (eg. shirt, wrap, tunic, fit and flare, maxi), skirts (eg. wrap, maxi, gathered, pleated).

Cloth Care:

Cotton can generally be machine washed 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.   Do not tumble dry as it will destroy the spandex.  Cotton needs a warm to hot iron.  Conduct a spot test. Cotton is dry cleanable.
