Gingham is totally having a moment, as you surely know, and we are loving it! Our latest collection of gingham fabrics to arrive is the super fun Checkers collection by Cotton and Steel. These are 48″ / 122cm wide wovens in awesome colours and a range of sizes. We’re just loving how you guys are using them not just for garments, but throwing them in the mix for quilts and stitching them up into other cute projects.
In case you are still thinking gingham is just for school uniforms, here is a round up of some of the fabulous things that you guys are making with Checkers from Instagram-land! The best tag to browse for more ideas is #checkersfabric but there are some snaps over on #checkersfabrics that are not to be missed.
This Sylvie Dress designed and made by @christinehaynes in Checkers 1/2″ Gingham in Citron is just perfect, in my opinion! Such an absolutely dreamy summer dress!
