The Open Road - Designer Pima Lawn

£1.00
per half metre
Fabric Code: E2a61
Introduction:

This fabulous printed Pima lawn was originally designed for a top British designer. Pima lawn is considered a very high-quality fabric, originally made in South America, but finding its way to all corners of the globe due to its excellent strength, breathability and amazingly soft feel and weight; akin to lightweight silk. This is real luxury cotton.

The Open Road - Designer Pima Lawn is a super silky cotton lawn that features an all-over printed design of vintage motorcycles which, are featured in a simple graphic style upon a striking navy background. Bikers and transport fanatics of all ages will love this subtle yet quirky design!

Colour:

The simple yet detailed print features outlines of white which are coloured with hints of grey and tan brown, producing the effects of aged tan leather chrome and steel. 

This navy and white design has a very retro and vintage style, which is perfect for '40s styles and other retro makes (a great alternative to polka dots), yet its perfectly put together palette means that it is equally suitable for sharp shirts and other lightweight cotton attire such as nightshirt, robes and pyjamas. 

Properties:

The Open Road will hold crisp details such as collars, facings and cuffs. It will also form the prettiest (full) gathers for flounces, ruffles and all those extra details for all those biker girls out there!

Garment Suggestions:

Pattern suggestions? For a delightful grown-up dress style, create the Wildergown - Friday Pattern Co for a bohemian prairie-style dress - make this pattern up with full gathers and layer up with cosy tights, biker boots and a cardigan to get even more wear from it. For a similar style, Stitchless TV's Pontoon Tier Dress is super easy and has a V-neckline that you can easily layer (wear with a roll neck top underneath?)

The Open Road will of course make classic shirts and blouses, pretty tea dresses, and the cutest little baby rompers with matching white Peter Pan collars.
