Our collection of cotton fabrics consists of regular combed cotton, cotton lawn and cotton gauze.
Cotton lawn is a light-weight fabric made from 100% cotton, perfect for many dressmaking projects.
The threads are very fine and the high thread count gives it a silky smooth finish.
Cotton lawn fabric is quite light-weight, but it still keeps its shape well and drapes nicely. It's a perfect choice when sewing clothes for warmer weather. Cotton lawn is commonly used for sewing blouses, shirts, dresses, handkerchiefs and nightwear.
Cotton gauze fabrics have a loose open weave and are therefore light-weight, airy, and slightly crinkled. This gives it a more casual look.
Cotton gauze is often used for baby wraps, and breezy dresses and blouses.
This dress fabric is very soft and drapes nicely.
Because of its open, airy weave, it is the perfect fabric to wear during the hot summer months. Although the possibilities of the material are endless. (They would make very cosy pyjamas too)
Cotton Double Gauze is, just as the name suggests, two layers of woven fabric bound together. This fabric has, therefore, more body and will be less translucent removing the need to add lining to your garment.
