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.

This cloth is a 100% light weight Japanese cotton.  It has a white gauze base, and includes small “damask-like” applications, incorporates “eyelash” 3D effects, and has a navy non-directional butterfly print.  This is a unique and understated fabric, and perfect for staying cool in summer.  It would also be a beautiful shirt, any time of year.  The gauze sections throughout the fabric are transparent but this is detracted by the print and applications.  You may want to line skirts, but you may find that all you need is your flesh toned undergarments.

For your cloth edit consider:  loose tops/blouses/shirts or wrap tops. The fabric is light but holds some shape so consider dresses such as wraps, tunics, and shirt dresses.  A full or wrap skirt would also be beautiful.    

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; any number of the Folkwear Patterns such as the Gaza dress or the Japanese Kimono; In The Folds’ Collins Top; and Named Patterns’ Reeta dress.

Cloth Care:

While cotton can generally be machine washed and tumble dried without any problem, this is a lightweight and delicate fabric (with an eyelash effect), so take more care of the cloth/garment, so hand wash or and use a short / delicate cycle and place inside a mesh washing bag.  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 potentially damage the eyelash effect.  Do Not Tumble Dry.  To prevent fading, wash inside out and dry in the shade.   Cotton needs a warm to hot iron.  Conduct a spot test.  Cotton is dry cleanable.
