We’re sure you’ll see where we’re going with this one. Sadly, not on holiday ourselves – but for those of you who are, our blue and aqua printed cotton lawn fabric will be the perfect accompaniment for warm summer days and evenings.
This is a crisp cotton lawn fabric with a gentle handle and a beautiful, coolly-wafting drape as you can see from this video.
Obviously this is a lighter-weight cotton fabric. It’s perfect for summer tops and blouses – and, we think, gently-falling maxi dresses. The pattern on this blue and aqua printed cotton lawn fabric is a subtle one, however it’s on a large scale, perfect for making a subtle statement across a more expansive garment. This print also serves to obscure whatever’s underneath – however if you’re anticipating wearing it in a less relaxed context, then we’d suggest a lining of cotton lawn would be the way to go. The colours here are surprisingly warm in tone – there are washes of lavender amid the swirls and glimpses of sky blue, aqua and darker navy blue.
We’re inclined to make the most of the lighter weight of this blue and aqua printed cotton lawn fabric – ruches, gathers and pleats will all add body and movement to a garment without bringing undue bulk to the party. We rather like the look of this Maxi Dress pattern from BurdaStyle.
It’s the gathers into the keyhole bodice that we think will work particularly well with this fabric – adding shape and interest without being either too constraining or too fussy (for our tastes, at least). Perfect, we think, for a beach party…
Wash at 30 or 40 degrees – see our Fabric care pages for more information.
