From whispery sheer cotton voile, to shirt-worthy cotton batiste, we love breathable and comfortable cotton fabric. These soft, lightweight cotton fabrics are ideal for chic blouses, bespoke tailored shirts, wide panel skirts, and delicious spring frocks. Many of our lighter cottons are imported from always fashionable Italy, where they seem to specialize in unusual prints and sophisticated colorations.
