Prairie Check - Indian Cotton


| /

A bold red, brown, and black check on a warm white background.

This is a soft, mid-weight cotton which would make a beautiful shirt. If you were making a dress you’d want to pick a pattern with some fullness (like the 201 Prairie Dress), or you could line it. Also perfect for tops, pajamas, and chemises.

  • 42" (112cm) wide.
  • 100% cotton.
  • Pattern repeat – .5" (1.2cm).
  • For the first couple of washes, place the fabric in the washing machine on warm with a handful of table salt. This will help fix the dye to prevent it running.
  • Indian cloths are handmade, sometimes susceptible to irregularities in the weave or print, this is all part of their charm and are not classed as flaws.

    This fabric is great for patterns like our 102 French Cheesemaker's Smock, 104 Egyptian Shirt, 142 Old Mexico Dress145 Chinese Pajamas, 252 Beach Pyjamas, 201 Prairie Dress, 203 Edwardian Underthings, and 212 Five Frontier Shirts.

    Fabric is sold by the 1/2 yard (so 1 unit is 1/2 yard, 2 units is 1 yard, etc.).
