Star Struck - Dobby Cotton Designer Shirting was originally designed for a top British designer. This 100% Turkish cotton with excellent strength, breathability and amazingly soft feel and weight features a cleverly woven dobby design of tiny repeating stars.
The cleverly woven stars in this precise design feature a subtle dark smoky grape yarn of lustrous silken fibres which sit perfectly against the seriously smart black background adding similar style influences to a classic fine polka dot. This excellent colour and design combination oozes sharp, serious quality. Team the delicious grape hues with black or aubergine tones for classic looks.
Star Struck is smooth soft and stable. It will hold crisp details such as collars, facings and cuffs- for classic shirt making. It drapes softly and will form the prettiest (full) gathers for flirty flounces, ruffles and tiered styles.

Although I am satisfied with my purchase and the speed of delivery I have not used fabric yet. The fabric is not Swiss dot(dobby) which I had expected.
