We couldn’t resist the warm glow of this soft terracotta floral cotton lawn fabric. We think it’s the perfect transitional fabric, picking up elements of autumnal as well as spring pastels and perfect for layering over longer trousers and skirts, perhaps under a cosy cardigan or jacket as the weather dictates. There’s more than a hint of vintage to this one – these colours are straight out of the 1930s.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our soft terracotta cotton lawn fabric is a lighter-weight, closely-woven cotton lawn. It’s woven from long-fibred ‘Pima’ cotton; strong, fine cotton yarn which results in a smooth, refined and high-quality cloth.
What does this fabric feel like?
This fabric has a soft, smooth and cool handle. It feels very fine yet it’s robust, stable and very easy to work with.
How does this fabric move?
The movement of this soft terracotta floral cotton lawn fabric is a soft, floating drape which will catch a breeze with elegance, as you can see from this video.
Will I need to line this fabric?
The close weave and the print pattern of this soft terracotta floral cotton lawn fabric remove the need to line a top or tunic since it has very good opacity for its weight. A fitted bodice would require lining for strength and structure but a skirt or bottom half of a summer dress would be just fine in a single layer over bare legs.
What can I make with this fabric?
We’re partial to a classic cotton shirt here at ClothSpot and we think this soft terracotta floral cotton lawn fabric would be the perfect candidate for the ‘Archer’ Shirt from Grainline Studio. We’ve made up this design on more than one occasion and here’s just the opportunity to give this timeless design a vintage makeover.
