Customer Questions and Answers

CB

Would this fabric work well for an adult peasant-type blouse? I'm not sure exactly what "percale" means.

If you have a particular pattern in mind, we can help you select the best fabric to match, just email our helpful customer service staff with the pattern number. Percale is the type of weave of this cotton fabric which makes it have an almost satin like sheen on one side of the fabric. It is a lovely soft, yet structured fabric which can suit some types of blouses.

What is the width? What is shrinkage percentage? As percale does it iron well? I see gathers on her dress/nightgown so will it iron so that the gathers look nice when wearing it as a dress?

Based on our recommended wash instructions, which can be found in our help center,the shrinkage will be 3% in the warp and 5% in the weft. This irons very nicely and will hold the gathers accordingly.

Is the stripe woven or printed?

The stripe is printed.

This is a child's size 3 bishop dress with smocking. The fabric was wonderful to sew upon and pressed up nicely. It was NOT particularly suitable for smocking as it is a tightly woven percale that doesn't accept hand embroidery easily. The finished dress will wear well and last through several children. I will happily use this fabric again but not for hand embroidery.
