Break the Rules - Banded Shirting is slightly different to your usual shirting cottons. This is for those who like to break the rules and not follow the crowds.
This first rate, high thread count, Italian woven, 100% cotton shirting is woven in 5 x 32 cm vertical bands. Each band features a slight variation of checked weave designs, all the finely woven designs within the 5 bands feature an easy on the eye palette of blue, grey and white.
The tiny checked designs are so finely woven one can only tell the difference between them, by really close inspection, or by difference in shade. This finely woven creation boasts a smooth, cool, soft and drapey handle that's stable width wise and a dream to sew.
Top high street stores have featured shirts, blouses and shirt dresses made with contrasting pieces, sleeves etc. Sewing garments made by your own fair hands means you can choose to break the rules and place colours and designs where you choose. This excellent shirting fabric is perfect for such styles. You can cut the back piece to the centre panel and have your shirt fronts featuring two slightly different panels, your sleeves, yoke and all the other pieces in a similar fashion.
If shirt making isn't your forte there are a host of other projects you can make from this fabric, try tea dresses with gathered skirts (make sure you centralise the design), pyjamas, quick make T-shirt style tops, tunics, crafts like patchwork, quilting and applique.
