Exuberant scarlet & sky blue printed cotton lawn fabric with a crisp handle and lively float. Perfect for bright summer frocks, tops and tunics

In Stock: 11 available

If you want to kick off your summer sewing with a ‘Yippee’ then surely this vibrant scarlet and sky blue printed cotton lawn fabric is one to consider. Yes it’s a floral, technically – but not as we know it, Jim. Those exuberant scarlet blooms outlined on a vibrant combination of background blues lift the spirit. The irreverant, jarring contrast between the red and blue is exciting and will bring a carefree edge to whatever you choose to make.

When it comes to choosing a garment, we say that with a print pattern as outrageous as this one – more is most definitely – more. Our inclination is to give this uplifting scarlet and sky blue printed cotton lawn fabric the best and biggest opportunity to shine – and for that reason we’re eyeing up dress designs with a fair bit of fabric in them for maximum impact.

Longer-line dress by & Other Stories

This design from & Other Stories is the kind of thing we’re considering – although shorter tunics and shirts would also be just dandy. This is a refined Pima cotton lawn, woven with longer, finer cotton yarns and although it’s a lighter-weight cotton fabric, it has good opacity for its weight. A shirt or tunic wouldn’t need lining – although with the sun behind you, onlookers are going to see a silhouette from a skirt or dress, unless the design builds in sufficient drapes and folds to avoid it. Our scarlet and sky blue printed cotton lawn fabric has a crisp, smooth handle; it floats and hangs with summery freshness as you can see from this video.

On the pattern front, we’re thinking a shirt dress in a semi fitted design – either knee length or a longer, floating design as in Simplicity Pattern 8014.

Simplicity Vintage Shirt Dress Pattern 8014

We’re thinking View A, lose the pockets and go with the short sleeves. For casual summer purposes we’ll probably give it a whirl without a lining, but add in a skirt layer of Plain 100% cotton lawn fabric in Red if necessary.

If you decide to go with the shirt or summer layering approach – then you might like the way the red in this fabric pops out against our darker Classic denim blue cotton chambray fabric.
