Seaside Stripes - Chambray Style - Linen & Cotton is just as its name suggests a fabulously soft (almost washed and worn), cool, breathable linen and cotton blend fabric, woven in jaunty seaside stripes from a combination of fresh white, mid denim blue, tangerine and gold yarns (on the warp) and classic white on the weft. The combination creates fabulous sketchy melange stripes with the look of chambray.
Made in Europe by a company of world renown, with centuries of expertise and tradition. This blended fabric gives you the benefits of both wonderful natural fibres. Cotton blended with linen produces a softer, finer fabric that is easier to iron. Linen and cotton have been used for centuries because of their beneficial properties; cool and breathable, get softer with washing & wear and linen is impervious to moths and resists dirt and stains. Linen will not form lint or pill and can be washed at high temperatures with only moderate shrinkage. The characteristic slubs (once viewed as a fault) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric.
Seaside Stripes - Chambray Style is stable, soft and has the feel of a favourite linen shirt. This light (but not flimsy) relaxed chambray style fabric will form crisp details (with a little light interfacing), on collars and cuffs. Used in quantity it will form feminine gathers, pleats, pintucks and ruffles. So all you have to do is decide what to make. Soft, breathable and oh so comfortable you will want to make a wardrobe full of key pieces for a superb, summer layered-chic linen look. Its lightweight and soft drape make it the ideal candidate for a plethora of uses from the stylish to the practical.
Create '90s inspired button front summer dresses like Closet Core's Fiona Dress or a fabulous directional striped detail dress like V1743. Pantsuits with longline sleeveless shirts and wide-legged trousers are also a fabulously chic "Riviera" style perfect for those hot summer days.
Put Seaside Stripes to use for simple boat-necked tops and pretty blouses, it's also perfect for creating layering garments such as vest tops, drapey tunics and pinafore dresses. Heavily pleated culottes and shorts will look superb in this cherry red denim/ chambray style fabric.
