There was probably room for the word “crinkle” in the heading somewhere as well but that would have been taking it too far and the crinkle in the cotton is only a touch really. How can I name this fabric anything other than colour card as I see myself lined up in the paint section absorbing the panorama of paint colours…a process which I love, by the way, because the endless colour options are quite inspiring. But anyway, enough about paints, it’s all about the fabric!
This cotton has such a great graphic with the tiled colour segments in duck egg blue, cement, dove, manila, caramel and black which will lend itself so well to shirts, dresses, skirts, with so many options for colour coordination. I love the idea of a box pleat skirt out of this or a shirt that has shaping and darts to offset the geometry of this print. But it can be many more things besides.
This fabric is completely modern. It has a retro hint to it but the crinkly effect modernises it so well. This one was an Australian designer end roll. Which designer though I can’t remember. The cotton is quite opaque and probably light-to-medium weight. You can see in this next photo how it takes folds and volume.
The fabric width is 116cm and the length 2.10 metres. The fabric is $32 per metre/$67.20 plus post. Please see the FAQ for full details on payment and posting.
