Remnant - Grey Chambray Shirting – 1.2 yards

$15.20 $16.80

If you aren’t sewing with chambray in spring, are you sewing at all? 🤔

 

This chambray shirting

  • is lightweight and crisp, with a floaty drape
  • is mostly opaque – perfect for a dress or top
  • is a true chambray, with white weft threads and a gorgeous blue selvedge

 

Details

  • Colour: A classic grey-blue chambray, with white weft threads and a blue selvedge
  • Tone: Neutral
  • Fabric Content: 100% cotton (confirmed by a burn test)
  • Opacity: Fairly opaque, some shadow will show through when held up to direct light
  • Drape: Crisp with some floaty drape
  • Weight: Lightweight
  • Width: 58
  • Source: Deadstock from Halston Heritage
  • Care: Wash in warm or cool water, air dry or tumble dry on low. Iron on medium. Cotton will shrink so be sure to prewash!

 

Sustainability: Deadstock is high-quality fabric that went unused by the mill or designer 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 acrylic fibres & diverts high-quality textiles away from landfills. Pretty cool!
