This printed Oxford weave 100% Cotton fabric is woven from groups or picks, of super soft cotton yarn to produce a lightly textured - basket weave-like fabric that's hard-wearing and super versatile.
White & Navy Tabulation is woven with a fresh white base and printed in classic navy with a repeating design of rows of clustered dots (akin to early computer punch cards). Navy and white is such a classic combination and this is a great alternative to your usual polka dot.
White & Navy Tabulation has the lightly textured look and feel of a basket weave and is an excellent medium weight, which is hard-wearing and a perfect weight for smart casual shirts and also a good replacement for your usual go-to chambray or even lightweight suiting projects or structured/tailored garments. A soft, reassuring drape quality also makes this excellent fabric ideal for less structured garments or ones with soft gathers, pleats and tucks.
Ideal styles to make in White & Navy Tabulation are smart/casual shirts with big patch pockets and pocket flaps. Extending the shirt theme into a shirt dress, add some gathers to skirt panels to create cosy prairie-style dresses. Fancy a simple beginner project? A-line skirts, pencil skirts and simple boxy T-shirt tops are all ideal to make in this stable and easy-to-sew fabric. take a look at Sew Different's easy-make patterns.
The Megan Nielsen Patterns' Protea Capsule Wardrobe would make perfect examples of pretty full-gathered styles for easy, stunning outfits and so versatile! Team with your favourite jeans.
This fabric is also available in a reversed colourway here: Navy & White Tabulation.
