This first rate, vertically striped (finely woven not printed), 100% cotton shirting has so many plus points you will certainly want to make many a garment from it.
Cool Breeze - Silky Twill Striped Shirting is soft and silky with ribbon like fine stripes of lustrous twill which catch the light, showing off its Italian pedigree. Thoughts of blue sky summer days and cooling sea breezes are another mood-boosting thought that come to mind when looking at Cool Breeze.
Looks alone aren't its only attribute, this excellent fabric boasts a texture to reach out for! This happy stripy fabric is soft, stable, cool and boasts a malleable soft drape quality that will form pretty gathers, neat pin-tucks and will form crisp collars and cuffs (with the help of a little light iron-on interfacing). Its soft hand (almost washed & worn) feels similar to a lightweight chambray; suiting both smart and casual styles. Shirt weight fabrics are a sewing room staple whether you're a crafter or a seamstress.
Cool Breeze will make fabulous shirts and blouses (the ones you never want to take off) also imagine traditional pyjamas and nightdresses with white piped collars and monogrammed pockets. Create the sweetest traditional babies rompers and pretty dresses, add some smocking, applique or ric-rac trim for extra cuteness. Fashion yourself stylish summer dresses; shirtdress style, fit & flare or simple tea dress styles with pretty gathered skirts. Simple T-shirt style tops, smock style tops like the Sagebrush Top (by Friday Pattern Co) or the Peasant Top & Tie Shirt Pattern (by Sew Different).
This versatile fabric is an ideal addition to your crafting stash for patchwork, applique and so much more.
