Taking a hint from current menswear-inspired trends, high-quality shirting is now a very affordable luxury!
Gingham at the Gap:
Chambray at Anthropolgie:
Our Shirtings are a lightweight, finely woven material with a high thread count, and they are 100% cotton or close to it (a few have a tiny bit of spandex in them for added comfort and mobility). They are so beautiful and soft, the quality really is asstounding. I often refer customers in our store to the shirting section, because the prices are better than a lot of the quilting cottons, and the fabric is of such high quality. To check out our entire shirting selection, click here. And to persuade you to take advantage of this great sale, I figured I'd show you a handfull of my favorite spring home sewing patterns (all of them available in our store - with an everyday low price of 20% OFF MSRP!). This dress pattern by McCalls (#6350) is great. The body of our shirting fabrics would really lend itself well to the pleating and draping of this design. And imagine it in this vibrant bubblegum stripe! You could also do a tailored shirt or bodysuit for a very classic look, hence the material's namesake. Here, Burda Patterns 2561 & 7353:
I love this acid lime green with orange:Or try one of our double-face gauzes; it's like having a contrast lining without the work of lining the garment; double-face gauze is two-ply, having two usable faces. Imagine a rolled up sleeve!For younger girls, I like the idea of a romper. You'd want to line the shorts or bottom part of this style if using shirting, but the results would be so unique! It'd be just the perfect dose of a bold plaid in this short jumpsuit from Simplicity (#2222): Lastly, I touch on the spring Easter holiday and the kiddies who love that special reason to dress up. With this adorable pattern from McCall's (#6304), Easter fashion is a walk in the park! Just check out some of our gingham shirting! So how about it? We've got so many choices in this beautiful, soft, high-end fabric, and now's the perfect time of year to get comfortable in it!
