What is Cotton?

Cotton is one of the most popular natural fibers used for textiles and clothing. Known for thousands of years, its fibers, either short or long, can be woven or knitted into various fabrics such as lawn, batiste, poplin, jersey or velvet. The most common weaves for cotton include:

  • plain;
  • twill;
  • satin.

Pure cotton cloth is easy to handle and comfortable to wear all year round. Soft, breathable and absorbent, it is a go-to choice for summer apparel. Lightweight fabrics are best suitable for shirts, blouses and dresses; medium-weight – for trousers, skirts, dresses; heavy – for trousers, jackets and outwear. Cotton is everybody’s favourite when summer comes around, with a choice of prints and patterns available for any taste and style.

Embroidered Cotton Fabric

Why does everybody love cotton? There are lots of reasons. Cotton fabric is a popular choice for apparel because it is:

• Highly absorbent

• Breathable

• Durable

• Easy to wash and care for

• Soft

• Anti-allergic

Embroidered cotton fabrics offer the same amount of comfort plus add a playful touch to your style. The end-uses are limitless: from simple shift or shirt dresses to playsuits, tunics and full skirts. One may go for plain cotton materials with tone-on-tone embroidery, perfect for understated looks, or choose bolder versions with contrast-colored threads, frills and appliques. Satin stitch, one of the most beautiful types of embroidery, has the silkiest touch.

How to Sew with Cotton

Cotton is quite easy to work with and is the perfect place to start if you are a beginner at dressmaking. A lot depends on the type of fabric, but still there are some common tips for sewing with cotton.

  1. Prepare your sewing tools and notions in advance – scissors, threads, needles, pins, a measuring tape and a sewing pattern.
  2. Most fabrics need to be pre-washed before cutting, because they might shrink. It all depends on the type of fabric – sometimes only dry-cleaning/steaming is allowed. Use a scrap of fabric to test if pre-washing works for you.
  3. Make sure the fabric is wrinkle-free. Iron it with care on a medium setting, preferably on the reverse side.
  4. If you need to secure cotton fabric, use pins or pattern weights to keep it in place. We recommend using fine pins for lightweight fabrics not to damage them.
  5. Use water soluble and vanishing pencils or chalk to mark the fabric.
  6. Sharp scissors are a key to success. Make sure you avoid snags when cutting.
  7. Choose the correct machine foot and needle for your sewing machine. Your needle size should be based on the type and weight of thread you are using. We recommend using cotton or polyester threads.
  8. Cotton is ok with pressing. Be careful not to iron wet fabric – it can stretch beyond repair.
