When it comes to shirt-making projects, nothing beats a classic cotton oxford, and we’re delighted to offer this Better Cotton certified shirting in six classic, preppy shades. A little thicker than your typical cotton shirting, oxford has a thin checkerboard pattern due to its basketweave texture. Yarn dyed on the warp and white on the weft, these lightweight beauties may remind you of chambray. Smooth and soft with crisp drape, they are ideal for button down shirts, tops and day dresses.

Care Instructions


Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric. We recommend washing and drying fabric in the same way you intend to wash your finished garment. Be sure to separate brights and colours, as some dyes and prints may run the first few times you wash them. You can add half a cup to one cup of vinegar to the final rinse cycle to help set the colours and minimize bleeding. It’s important to wash and dry cotton to remove any potential shrinkage down the road.

Long-Term Care

Machine wash in warm water and tumble dry on medium or hot.

Fabric Tips

You can use a hot iron when pressing cotton. You can use sharp point universal needles to sew your projects. We recommend starting your project with a brand new needle.

Worked great for a men’s button up!

I made a dress shirt for my husband in my college sewing class. This fabric worked beautifully and was so pleasant to sew with! My only complaint was when I was sewing with the grain line, I noticed my stitches stood out significantly. But going perpendicular they look perfect and tightly stitched together. I thought I had a too big needle size or something was wrong with my machine at first but realized it’s just how the fabric was! Super odd, I’ve never noticed that in another fabric (I’m in my 4th advanced sewing class so not a novice but not a total expert), maybe it’s a thing and was just more dramatic in this Oxford weave. I probably wouldn’t have noticed either if I wasn’t sewing something where perfect topstitching and edgestitching was a critical part of the make. But it’s fine it worked out and the shirt looks amazing! Would honestly purchase this fabric again for a shirt or dress for me.

Great Fabric

I used this fabric for pocket bags and zip guards on three pairs of trousers, two made of 8 oz twill, one of 10 oz canvas. It works wonderfully for this purpose. It lies flat and slim under the thicker material, but is strong.
