You want colour? WE GOT COLOUR! This red, yellow and hot pink cotton lawn fabric also has dashes of vibrant cobalt and emerald woven into its energetic paisley-inspired design and we think that it’ll prove an incredibly versatile accompaniment to your summer basics. It literally makes us smile as we spot it across the ClothSpot studio. It looks fabulous over jeans; will make a statement summer dress and lift your spirits to the heavens. What’s not to like?
What kind of fabric is this?
Our flamboyant hot pink 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 carnival-in-a-cotton-lawn 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 red and hot pink 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, although a silhouette will be visible.
What can I make with this fabric?
We think this fabric is perfect for cool, floating summery 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 laid-back tops from The Sewing Revival; their simple shapes are the perfect canvas for vibrant and dramatic prints; their ‘Bellbird Top’ is a lovely example.
