This shirt-weight luxe cotton fabric was created by the Italians, who are famed for their superior expertise in producing the finest fabrics and this silky cotton shirt-weight fabric is just the case. 

Superfine high thread count silken cotton yarns are expertly woven together in a classic twill weave to produce the smoothest, lustrous sheen and silken hand you will think it is silk. Battleship Grey feels cool to the touch, is stable and strong, yet is lightweight without being flimsy.

This luxe shirting drapes with ease and will delight you with its subtle sheen. This fabric of admirable qualities will make a plethora of makes you will treasure. Read on for more ideas, info and inspiration on how to use this designer deadstock fabric to create your bespoke makes.

Garment Suggestions:

This fabric will of course make the most superior shirts and blouses from classic cuts to more boho, cottage core styles, like the Tilly and the Buttons Marnie Blouse also perfect for extending into a dress! The Megan Nielsen Protea Capsule Wardrobe is another excellent choice. Add colourful buttons and contrast interior cuffs and collars to your shirts for a luxury take on a classic style.

Spoil yourself and make the most luxurious pyjamas (Closet Core Carolyn Pyjamas is an ideal pattern) and matching robes (the Sew Different Jhoti Duster Jacket). Add some neat contrasting piping or some colourful embroidery to create a feature in your unique way.

Other Uses:

Use to make the most deliciously soft and silky breathable lining for your woollen makes- bags, scarves, hats caps, waistcoats and skirts.
