Fabric of the Week: 60’s Print Cotton Spandex

Our ‘Fabric of the Week’ from 08th July 2016 to 13th August 2016 is our 60’s Print Cotton Spandex.

This week, we chose this bright and cheerful Cotton/Spandex blend in an Orange and White, featuring a fab 60’s print, for our Fabric of the Week.

The material is lovely to work with, and the blend of cotton and spandex means you don’t have to worry about your fabric moving as you sew; the cotton keeps it nice and sturdy while the addition of spandex allows for a little give when you need it.

The material is bright and airy and would be the perfect addition to your summer wardrobe.

We loved this fabric so much we just had to get busy sewing with it. We chose, Simplicity Pattern #1609, Version A.

The style of this dress worked beautifully with our fabric. We chose a soft Cotton Lawn to finish the peter-pan collar and some sombre wooden buttons, available at Karen Delahunty Sewing & Knitting Centre.

Remember you can always purchase any of the patterns, materials or notions that we have used to create this piece in store or online.
