Our latest shipment of designer deadstock fabric arrived full of cotton shirtings in colors and patterns that we can’t wait to wear! Woven from cool, crisp cotton, these fabrics will keep you comfortable on hot days and will make fantastic layering pieces as the seasons change. Scroll down for a peek at some of our favorite fabrics from the shipment and our picks for perfect pattern matches. As always, deadstock fabric quantities are limited, so if you find a fabric you can’t live without, don’t wait too long to place your order!

Traditionally used for button-up shirts, shirting fabrics are lightweight, yarn dyed fabrics with a fine weave and a high thread count. These fabrics are opaque with a smooth, crisp hand. Yarn dyed fabrics get their patterns from colored threads woven together, so many of the shirtings we stock have patterns like stripes, plaids, and gingham.

While button-up shirts are an obvious choice for shirtings, these cottons will work well for sewing garments that require a crisp, lightweight cotton with a bit of body—think shirts, skirts, dresses, light jackets, and more.

One of the things we love most about sewing is being able to make garments to fit exactly the way we like. A classic button-up shirt is an incredibly satisfying garment to customize—to inspire you, we’ve picked out six of our favorite classic button-up patterns below. If you’re an experienced sewist, a project like this can be a great way to level-up your skills as you make fit adjustments. If you’re a beginning sewist, we recommend starting with a pattern like the Grainline Archer—it’s a big project, so Grainline Studio has created free sew-along videos to walk you through every step of the process!

If a classic button-up isn’t your style, there are so many other possibilities for shirting! Whether you choose a minimalist top, a ruffled skirt, or a dress with a wrap (or a twist!), your only limit is your imagination. For best results, look for a pattern that calls for a lightweight woven fabric with a bit of structure.
