Beachcomber Reversible Cotton Gauze Fabric

Tokyofive.com  $58.95 shirt
Have you seen those plaid shirts with the check accents on the collars and pockets?  Until now, it has been nearly impossible to find fabrics that will allow you to get this look.  We have an exciting collection that will blow your mind!


Vogue Fabrics proudly offers Beachcomber Reversible Cotton Gauze Shiritings.  Super soft, lightweight cotton fabric is double woven with plaid on one side and a check pattern on the other.  You can use either side as the face. 



You can easily re-create those cool camp shirts using the same fabric and reversing the sides.  For the super thrifty, whip up an elastic waist skirt that you can wear reversibly for two looks in one garment.  Also try stitching up a full skirt, slitting the side hem to the knee, and tacking back the corners to showcase both sides.  How about making some clam diggers – full legged  pants with elastic waist that go down to the mid-calf – and rolling up the hem to reveal the reverse.  Create summertime pajamas – the SOFT face is an OMG climbing into bed at night!

If you are a Civil War reenactor in the South, consider creating summer garb from this breathable cotton.  It is so lightweight, you can use the German Plastic boning instead of steel to lighten the weight of your dress in the oppressive heat.  Construct the dress from the plaid, and use the check for the contrast waist band and accents at the hem and sleeves. 

Beachcomber Reversible Cotton Gauze Shirtings are available on VogueFabricsStore.com.   Several colors available.
