Embroidered Butterfly Cotton Shirting – 1/2 yard

$ 8.25 CAD

This fabric is a 90s dream - pair with some spring-loaded butterfly clips & low-rise jeans and you're well on your way to impressing that hottie at the mall. 


  • Colour: Thin light blue and white stripes with machine-embroidered butterflies dotted throughout (butterflies are approximately 0.5" long and 0.5i" wide)
  • Tone: Neutral to cool
  • Fabric Content: 100% cotton 
  • Opacity: Fairly opaque - some shadow will show through when held up to light
  • Drape: Light and floaty
  • Weight: Lightweight
  • Width: 56"
  • Source: Deadstock, originally made in Italy, by way of the NYC Garment District
  • Care:  Cotton will shrink, so be sure to prewash. Afterwards, we recommend washing on warm/cool, drying on medium (permanent press).   

*We recommend taking a screenshot of this page to capture the care instructions, as listings often disappear when fabric goes out of stock!

Sustainability: Deadstock is high-quality fabric that went unused by the initial designer, fabric store or mill  who ordered it – be it a big-name fashion brand, fabric mill or film & TV set. (Kind of like browsing the fashion industry's fabric stash.) Buying deadstock supports a circular textile economy, avoids net new production of harmful fibres and dyes & diverts high-quality textiles away from landfills. Pretty cool!
