Magenta Cross Hatch - Cotton Poplin Designer Shirting is a first-rate, all-cotton poplin initially created for a top British designer of quality men's and women's wear. This top-notch fabric has an easy-on-the-eye, all-over design, of magenta cross-hatched grid work against a white background.

Small printed designs are perfect for adding interest to otherwise plain outfits and ideal for teaming with other small designs; spots, ginghams, florals and stripes.


Magenta Cross Hatch is created from fine optic white, Turkish cotton yarns and is printed with a design of magenta-pink cross-hatched gridwork.

Fresh white and colour combinations are all-time winners, perfect for your favourite bespoke-made summer clothing for all the family. All you need is to decide what you will make.  Sit this with navy for a perfect colour combination sure to get admiring glances!


This high thread count all cotton poplin is cool, breathable, smooth and has a stable hand, with a soft drape quality too. When gathered and pleated it will form excellent fullness, perfect for an array of styles; tiered and ruffled- dresses and blouses, pleated skirts and lightweight trousers to classic, crisp shirts.

Garment Suggestions:

Magenta Cross Hatch will make great classic and retro style shirts, Sew Mark Francis' Brighton Shirt Pattern and Vanessa Mooncie's Book: The Gentleman's Wardrobe also has a similar retro style shirt pattern with cropped sleeves. The Sew Different Patterns are ideal for creating mixed and matched relaxed separates in these excellent designer poplin fabrics! The Anthea Blouse by Anna Allen is a perfect example of a pretty full-gathered style for easy outfits. Team with your favourite jeans, coloured chinos, skirts or shorts!

Put this fabulous fabric to use for '50s style fit & flare dresses and line the bodice for a crisp finish. Accessorise stand-alone pieces with navy shoes and handbags to create a classic combination. 

The Megan Nielsen Patterns' Protea Capsule Wardrobe would make perfect examples of pretty full-gathered styles for easy, stunning outfits and so versatile!

Perfect pieces for the holiday season: Shirt-dresses, tunics and playsuits are also excellent choices to make from this cool cotton classic.

Don't forget to create matching baby and toddler outfits from this classic; super cute rompers, dresses and matching knickers. Add contrasting white yokes and collars, and add some contrasting smocking or ric-rac trim for the cutest creations!

Other Uses:

Add accents of this fabric (and its siblings: F3c32 and F3c31) to your crafting stash for cute patchwork and applique pieces and so much more.

All of these ex-designer shirting fabrics will of course make the most handsome classic pyjamas with piped collars, pockets and cuffs.

Pink cotton fabric suitable for ladies shirts or dresses

I loved the quality of the fabric I ordered.
The fabric is a lovely colour pink & so soft to the touch. I’m looking forward to making it up.
