Cotton Oxford Shirting - Light Blue
Add a swatch - $1.00 USD
Add coordinating thread - $2.00 USD
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 6 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.
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.
Instructions for cotton: It’s important to wash and dry cotton to remove any potential shrinkage down the road. Machine wash in warm water and tumble dry on medium or hot. More delicate cottons like voile, double gauze or embroidered cottons should be washed by hand or on the delicate cycle. Use a hot iron when pressing.
