Spoonflower Cotton Lawn is a light weight, slightly transparent fabric loved for its soft feel and elegance.
Cotton Lawn is a smooth weave 100 percent cotton textile with a beautiful drape and slight translucency. It offers a silky soft feel and is slightly transparent without being too sheer, so it makes an excellent choice for summer garments.
The queen of dopamine dressing, sewist Lori Forester stitched this stunning summer dress using The Artwerks Neon Summer Floral on Cotton Lawn.
‘I find it crispy, like sewing paper, but I actually like wearing it and the sound it makes. It behaves well but scars badly with a needle, so unpicking is something I try to avoid. The lawn has the structure to make an amazing dress, but it’s still light as a feather. It’s an odd fabric, but I like it somehow. Different to any other lawn I’ve met. Lol.‘ – Lori
Sidney-based sewist Bex Hulands sews classic vintage garments with flair. For this Simplicity 3414 dress she used just under 3m of cotton lawn Dewdrops & Roses by Charlotte Dymock. And for the Advance 2562 she chose Charlotte’s Jet Set print for its vintage travel motif.
‘The Spoonflower Cotton Lawn is divine, it’s a great fabric if you’re looking for the quality of cotton sateen but in a thinner lawn. The lawn works really well for designs that feature a lot of light colours and white space. Saturated or dark prints might make the fabric feel thick and stiff‘ -Bex
