PRODUCT INFORMATION
This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (.5m; ½ m).    Eg. for 2.5m, enter the quantity ‘5’. 
 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. 

 

100% Cotton Broderie Anglaise - Skull and Hearts

Cloth Edit is always on the look-out for cool white fabrics, and I adore this fabric's twist on the classic broderie anglaise.   Whilst skull and bone designs can be a bit morbid, the embroidered skulls seem to be grinning, and instead of cross bones, I see it as cupid's bows with hearts on the end.  This is so much fun, but also remains a classic white cotton; perfect for shirts, blouses, tops, and ethereal dresses.  The 'lift' cotton has would be great for gathers.    The nature of the fabric means you may need a slip for skirts, but if the skirt is very full (or you have a tiered skirt) you may not.  You should be fine with flesh toned underwear for tops.  This is not a bright white like Cirque.  It's a bit more off white.

For your cloth edit consider:  loose – semi-fitted shirts, blouses, tops and tunics; dresses (eg. kaftan, tunic, oversized shirt dresses and wrap dresses with some fullness), skirts (eg. wrap, midi and maxi, gathered, pleated).

 Cloth Care:

Cotton is an easy care fibre as it is strong when wet, and so it can be machine washed.  Nevertheless, this is a special fabric, so take some care.  Use a mesh garment bag, use a gentle setting, shake out when wet and place on a hanger to dry (or dry flat).  Cotton can take a hot iron but start on a cooler setting, spot test, and iron on the wrong side. Use a pressing cloth to prevent over ironing ‘shine’.
