Introduction:

This delightful linen fabric comes to you in a subtle take on your favourite gingham design. Fresh sky blue and white make it an ideal choice for a multitude of practical and stylish sewing room projects to take you blissfully throughout spring and summer as carefree as a bird in flight.

Gingham fabrics have been enjoying the spotlight in spring and summer fashions for several years now. We are seeing them in everything from high fashion to fresh country-style interiors.

Colour:

Soft-sky blue like a cloudless summer sky and fresh white are expertly woven together in alternating groups of a fine sketch-like combination throughout the warp and weft in classic cool linen yarns and create a very versatile small-scale gingham style check of 4x4 mm blocks. This marvellous combination is perfect for stand-alone pieces or for combining with fresh classic white or baby blues and denim hues.

Properties:

Linen has been used for centuries for its beneficial properties; it is cool and breathable, gets softer with washing & wear, and linen is impervious to moths and resists dirt and stains. Linen will not form lint or pill and can be washed at high temperatures with only moderate shrinkage.

The characteristic slubs (once viewed as a fault) are now part of the aesthetic appeal of quality linen fabric. Bluebird Flight Gingham - 100% Linen is stable, and lightly textured, with the reassuring naturally absorbent and comfortable feel of a favourite linen garment, lightly crisp and will soften with washing and wear. This medium-weight fabric is closely woven with an Oxford shirting style.

Garment Suggestions:

Bluebird Flight will form crisp details (with a little light interfacing), on collars, cuffs and waistbands. Used in quantity it will form soft and full feminine gathers, plus neat pleats with a reassuring drape.  All you have to do is decide what to make. 

Make a wardrobe full of key pieces for a superb, summer linen look. Its perfect hand makes it the ideal candidate for many uses, from the stylish to the practical. Pleated culottes, shorts and trousers like our Pattern Stash's Cordelia Trousers will look superb in this versatile linen fabric.

Add a matching shirt that will also look superb with our Pattern Stash's Amelia Skirt. Perfect for light utility-style clothing with a happy summer twist, such as The Ilford Jacket and our Pattern Stash Lynsey Dungarees. Create interest by using the fabric on the diagonal. as showcased with the Sew Different Artista Dress.

Put Bluebird Flight to use for simple tops and classic shirts-overshirts and shirt dresses, it's also perfect for creating layering garments such as tunics and pinafore dresses. The Sew Different Tulip Dress and Triple Tuck Smock are ideal candidates for this type of look.

Other Uses:

Add some fabulously fun country-style gingham chic to your home with fresh cafe-style curtains and blinds, cushions, table linen and so much more.  Add matching fresh white crochet cotton lace for a  timeless heirloom style.
