Our Sienna Sandwashed Cotton Crepe has been a customer favourite over the last year, working well on all sorts of garments from boxy tops to stylish pants. After sewing with and loving this fabric over the seasons, today we added 7 new colourful shades to hasten the arrival of spring-time weather (and sewing 😉 ).
If you haven't sewn with Sienna before, let us tell you a little bit more about it! It's 100% cotton with a slight crepe or pebbled texture to the fabric, giving it something a little extra fun.
In addition to the crepe texture of the fabric, Sienna has been treated with sandwashing. What this does to a crisp cotton is make it ultra wearable. The effect of sandwashing helps to make Sienna softer and also results in a higher drape. In short, it takes a crisp solid cotton and makes it into a cotton fabric that has more of a well-loved linen-like feel.
Being a mid-weight, mid drape fabric means that Sienna pairs well with sewing patterns or garment styles that hang nicely to the body. This fabric is not overly stiff and also doesn't cling. It's easy to care for, and with all of the new shades, could very quickly become a staple in your handmade wardrobe!
If you're interested in sewing pattern suggestions, we have curated a list from gathered waist overalls to puff-sleeved tops. Find our favourite pattern recommendations along with other details about Sienna on our product pages.
From the bright burnt orange of Monarch to the romantic Dusty Blush, our new shades bring a punch of colour to these cold, snowy days. Shop the entire collection here.
