Composition: 100% cotton
Stretch: No stretch
Details: Black broderie anglaise is the perfect fabric to use when you need a staple solid coloured garment, but with a little extra drama...
This textured black beauty features a circular / floral design, with the larger shape measuring about 2" square.
I was careful to select a design with small to medium sized cut outs to allow for unlined garments should you wish.
Make: I am seeing lots of big, billowy sleeves and tiered skirts for this lovely cotton! It would make an incredible version of the McCall's M7969 like this one from Annamarie, or this one from Leeca, or a Tudor blouse.
Care instructions: Prewash in the same way you intend to care for your finished garment. Gentle machine washable in a wash bag to prevent snagging of the embroidery, line dry.
Care note: You may find you need to correct the grain of this fabric after washing, before cutting out your project. This fabric can sometimes warp a little in the spin cycle of your machine. This is due to the small cut-out eyelets throughout the fabric that allow a little more 'give' as the fabric is spun in the washing machine. To do so, gentle pull the fabric on the diagonal until you're happy it's back in shape.
Match: to Gütermann thread number 800 in 100m or 250m.
