We love gradually adding to our range of printed cotton lawn fabrics; it’s fun to find the matches that can be made across our plain collections. This navy blue and soft floral cotton lawn fabric has some delightful detail etched into the design, with rich, deep inky blues picked out by gold sketch marks and lit up with chartreuse green and turquoise. (And yes – it’s a sibling colourway to our previous ‘Pastoral’ blue & yellow floral cotton lawn fabric in case you were wondering.)
What kind of fabric is this?
Our detailed blue and soft red floral 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 complex navy and soft red 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 blue and soft red 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 think this fabric is perfect for cool, crisp cross-season tops and blouses. Dresses too would be fabulous options – classic strapped sun-dresses or perhaps designs which made the most of its lighter weight, with softly-gathered skirts. We love the idea of a design that gives plenty of scope to show off the detail of the print pattern in this fabric and the ‘Sudley’ from Megan Nielsen will do that, with its softly-gathered sleeves and skirt.
