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. 

This is one of our Italian Garden Collection prints (which also includes the Amalfi Black Linen Print and the Amalfi Cotton Floral Print).  This is a luxurious and unique  stretch cotton, also commonly known as stretch cotton sateen.  The background is a dusky pink, but it includes a range of colours, with bursts of burnt orange, plum/aubergine, pale pink, and if you have a keen eye you will spy small flashes of blue.  It is perfect for semi-fitted to looser pants, and A-line or fuller skirts.  It would be great in a wrap top, simple tunic dress, and equally as beautiful in something with more fullness, such as a midi wrap dress.   It has the added comfort of 3% elastane, which in our experiments relates to approximately 10% stretch across the grain.  This makes fitting bodices that bit more forgiving.  It has a very slight sheen on the right side, and it feels smooth. 

For your cloth edit consider:   dresses (eg. tunic, shirt dress, sheath, shift, A-Line, halter), tops (eg. semi-fitted, shell, tank, halter, wrap, shirt), A Line or fuller skirts, semi-fitted or wider leg pants.

We stock many beautiful indie patterns that would be a perfect match with this fabric.  Consider Closet Core Patterns’ new Elodie wrap dress, the Cielo dress, Fiore, Calle, and Pietra; I Am Patterns’ Hermes, Jain, Joy and Juliette; the Papercut Patterns’ Meridian dress; and In The Folds’ Collins Top and Acton dress.

Cloth Care:

Cotton is an easy care fibre as it is strong when wet, and so it can be machine washed.  While 100% cotton is often tumble dried the 3% elastane in this stretch woven means that tumble drying will adversely affect the fabric.  Do not tumble dry.  The finished garment will look better and last longer 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.   While cotton needs a hot iron, the elastane content means you will need to test the fabric, so start on a cooler setting, and iron on the wrong side. We suggest cushioning darts when ironing so the dart doesn’t show through on the right side.
