Plant Life - Cotton Poplin Designer Shirting is a fun ex-designer cotton poplin fabric with a confident designer style, perfect for creating cool, cotton garments and so much more. This cool sky blue-hued design has a quirky combination of fungi, trees and foliage specimens printed onto first-quality cotton poplin. The uplifting palette of cool-blue and soft cream hues is perfect for adding a fun touch to your handmade summer wardrobe.
Plant Life is created from fine optic white, cotton yarns woven with a super smooth poplin weave and is printed with a summer sky blue-hued background featuring cream with black outlined plant life.
Plant Life is a high thread count all cotton poplin that is cool, breathable, soft and has a stable hand, with a soft drape quality too. When gathered and pleated it will form excellent fullness, perfect for seriously feminine styles. Alternatively, create crisp masculine shirts that will receive admiring glances.
Plant Life 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.
Put this fabulous fabric to use for '50s/ skater style fit & flare dresses with cinched waistlines and deeply pleated skirts to create the iconic looks from "Mad Men". Create the ultimate '70s-inspired Kaftan dress with Sew Different's Camomile Kaftan or a wonderfully Boho ruffled wrap dress with the Darjeeling Frock.
Key pieces such as simple shirts and tops will make a workable capsule wardrobe when teamed with your jeans, plain trousers and skirts. Shirt-dresses, tunics and play/jumpsuits are also excellent choices to make from this cool cotton classic.
The Megan Nielsen Patterns' Protea Capsule Wardrobe would make perfect example of pretty full-gathered styles for easy, stunning outfits and so versatile!
All of these ex-designer shirting fabrics will of course make the most handsome classic pyjamas with piped collars, pockets and cuffs. Create cute outfits for babies and toddlers with gathered/ elasticated details and sweet Peter Pan collars.
Add this fabric to your crafting stash for holiday-themed patchwork and applique pieces and so much more. Team with stripes, small checks and polka dots or solid hues for total coordination.
