Linen/Viscose Chambray - Tropical Vintage - 1/4m

Lady McElroy


This is so retro! I love it so much; those dusty, sunwarmed colours, the layout, everything is screaming 1950's vacation vibe to me. Tis would be an amazing camp shirt, fit-n-flare dress, or even a gathered skirt. Please, someone make an Estuary skirt with vintage buttons! It's glorious. 

The fabric itself is very interesting, it's almost a faux barkcloth, but not as heavy. It's a midweight, with a little texture to it, and a looser weave. The viscose content gives it some movement, and the linen gives it some body.

Fabric is priced and sold by the 1/4 metre. We cut multiple 1/4 metres continuously. For example; 2 units is 1/2m, 3 units is 3/4m, 4 units is a full metre, 5 units is 1.25m. A single 1/4 metre will be cut as a fat quarter, unless you request a skinny quarter. Fat Quarters are half the width of the fabric x 0.5m, whereas Skinny Quarters are the full width of the fabric x 0.25m. We do this so you can order just as much fabric as you need, to decrease fabric wastage.

While we make every effort to ensure the accuracy of our photos, please be aware that we cannot control for individual monitor or display settings and colours may appear different in person than on screen.
