Essex Windowpane Chambray ½ yd
Our Essex Linen Cotton is a favourite! This versatile fabric combines the best of linen and cotton, creating a fabric that has the natural, textured look of linen with a softer drape and smoother finish.
Essex Windowpane is a classic variation of plaid, where the fibers that make up this fabric are first dyed, then woven into a grid pattern of intersecting horizontal and vertical stripes. These resemble the evenly divided panes of a window that gives Essex Windowpane its name. The yarn dyed quality also gives the fabric a soft, mid-low drape, as well as allowing a heathered colour.
We suggest pairing Essex with garment patterns that hang away from the body and maintain the garment's shape. For some of our favourite patterns to make, we'd pair Essex with the timeless Gallery Tunic, comfortable Burnside Bibs (size 00-20, size 18-34) or the dramatic Lichen Duster/Wrap Dress.
Not only is Essex an amazing fabric for making garments, it has also been used to create throw pillows, tote bags, re-cover chairs, napkins, curtains and so much more! Essex works well and looks good in so many ways.
