PRODUCT INFORMATION
This Fabric is sold in units of 50cm (= .5m; ½ m).    For example, if you want 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. 

Ichika means 'one thousand flowers', and this 100% light weight Japanese cotton (close to a lawn), is perfect for our Australian summers. The background is navy blue, and the print is a sharp, contemporary floral.  It is slightly sheer but not so much as to be a problem for tops and shirts.  This would be beautiful made into your favourite button-up shirt pattern, but just as lovely as a top with sleeve ruffles.  Dresses would be great option and you could omit any lining if the skirt has a bit of volume, and if you wear flesh toned undergarments.     

For your cloth edit consider:  semi-fitted to loose tops/blouses/shirts or wrap tops, with the opportunity for a statement sleeve as the fabric has a bit of body to hold some shape.  Consider dresses (eg. wrap, kaftan, tunic, shirt dress); a kimono or robe (short or full length). This fabric also has potential as a special occasion dress. 

We stock many beautiful indie patterns that would be a perfect match with this cotton.  Consider Closet Core Patterns’ Charlie Caftan or the new Elodie wrap dress; I Am Patterns’ Lucienne, Gaia, Hermes, Jain, and Joy; the Papercut Patterns’ Array top or the Pinnacle blouse; and Named Patterns’ Reeta dress.

Please note that this is a narrow fabric (112 cm).

Cloth Care:

Cotton can generally be machine washed and tumble dried without any problems.  As this is a lightweight fabric though, take more care of the cloth/garment and use a short / delicate cycle.  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 it will not look its best.  Do Not Tumble Dry. To prevent fading, wash inside out and dry in the shade.   Cotton needs a warm to hot iron.  Cotton is dry cleanable.
