Dawn Chorus was originally created for a top British designer renowned for his iconic Brit style, love of colour and classic men's and women's wear.

This first-rate, horizontally striped, woven not printed cotton and polyester Poplin shirting has so many plus points you will certainly want to make more than shirts from it.


Dawn Chorus is a classic Harvard stripe cotton shirting reminiscent of university blazer stripes and all those very iconic English academic traditions. The uplifting and fresh-hued palette of this fabric combines the subtle soft pink of daybreak skies alternating with music-stave-like stripes of summer sky blue, airforce blue and classic navy for a seriously jaunty summer style. There is a classic stripe for every occasion in this family of University Stripe Poplins: Evensong & Midday Melody.


This designer striped shirting is cleverly woven with superfine polyester yarns forming the warp to produce a sturdy and stable base for the cotton yarns woven through the weft forming the iconic horizontal stripes.

Looks alone aren't the only attribute, this excellent fabric boasts a classic cool, crisp texture to reach out for! Dawn Chorus is also soft, stable, and smooth, and boasts a malleable soft drape quality which will form pretty gathers, neat pin-tucks and crisp collars and cuffs with the help of a little light iron-on interfacing. Shirt-weight fabrics are a sewing room staple whether you're a crafter or a seamstress.

Garment Suggestions:

Dawn Chorus will make fabulous shirts and blouses (the ones you never want to take off) also imagine traditional pyjamas and nightdresses/ shirts with piped collars and monogrammed pockets. Create the sweetest traditional baby rompers, sailor suits and pretty dresses. Fashion yourself stylish summer dresses; shirtdress style, fit & flare or simple tea dress styles with pretty gathered skirts.

Simple T-shirt style tops, smock style tops like the Sagebrush Top (by Friday Pattern Co) or the Peasant Top Tie Shirt Pattern - Sew Different substitute new pink city collection. Create wonderfully up-to-date colour-blocked styles with similar stripes in different hues- shirts with contrasting fronts, sleeves, collars and cuffs. Create the Megan Nielsen Protea Capsule Wardrobe and use different coloured tiers and bodices with all our wonderful striped shirting fabrics.

Other Uses:

This versatile fabric is an ideal addition to your crafting stash for patchwork, applique and so much more. Stripes sit perfectly with ginghams, spots and ditsy florals.

NB: this fabric is woven with horizontal stripes therefore consideration will be needed when working out your fabric meterage for pattern layout.
