Description:

A classic bright blue soft denim with a small amount of stretch. A versatile cloth that could be used for lots of our patterns from an Ellis dress to an Ottoline jacket.

This is an overstock fabric. Overstock fabric is excess fabric from fashion designers, movie sets, and fabric mills that is no longer needed for the job it was originally intended for. It is not reorderable, so when it's gone, it's really gone!

  • 133cm wide.
  • 10.8oz, 368gsm.
  • 97% cotton, 3% elastane.
  • Country of origin; Italy.
  • As all computer monitors show colours differently, we recommend ordering a sample of the cloth to check it is the right colour and weight for your project.
  • This fabric will fade over time, avoid storing or drying in direct sunlight.
  • Thread match Gutermann Sew All 112.
Washing Instructions

We recommend pre washing your fabric before sewing. Putting a large piece of medium-heavy weight cloth into the washing machine can sometimes lead to white creases in the fabric, this is because it is a stiff fabric so it doesn’t have room to move around. We recommend doing the following to help this not to happen:

  • Wash your fabric on its own for the first wash.
  • Sink your fabric  in water before hand, letting it fully absorb, so you are putting in the cloth already wet.
  • If you can break up your fabric into half this will help.
  • For the first wash use a delicate 30 degree cycle with a low spin.
  • If any white creases develop ironing whilst still damp will help.
  • Do not tumble dry.

When you have made the garment we would recommend washing it inside out.
