Hand Block Printed Cotton - Borage. 1/4 metre
Lightweight cotton voile, hand printed using traditional wooden printing blocks in India. A pretty cobalt blue with mauve, charcoal and off white print - all with the irregular charm of something handmade.
This will make up into a stunning simple tee-shirt, light weight dresses, skirts and trousers. Some great pattern matches include: Scout Tee, Camber Dress/Top, Fielder Dress/Top, Kalle Shirt, Charlie Caftan, or a beautiful set of summer pjs Carolyne Pyjamas
For the first wash, place the fabric in the washing machine drum at 30 or 40 degrees with a handful of table salt. This will fix the dye to prevent it running.
