Our range of lightweight cotton lawn fabrics are perfect for dressmaking.
Cotton lawn is lighter in weight than regular cotton but slightly heavier (and less see through) than voile. It is perfect for dressmaking as it is very lightweight and breathable. The drape of the fabric is beautiful, it is soft to the touch and you can treat it like regular cotton when sewing.
Cotton lawn is mostly used in dresses, tops, nightwear, scarves and lingerie, but it can also be used to create beautiful window treatments, and with the addition of iron on interfacing, can even be used for cushions and pillows.
Cotton lawn is 100% cotton. It is more expensive per mtr than our regular cottons, but is over 30cm wider, at 144cm (fat quarters are 50cm x 72cm wide).
