Allow us to introduce our BF Exclusive Printed Cotton Twills! Bursting with bright, playful designs, we are so excited to spot you out and about wearing these sewn up in all sorts of fabulous makes!
Made from 100% cotton, we love how this twill sews up so easily thanks to its beautifully crisp drape and stable twill weave. At 8.5 ounces, this versatile midweight cotton has more heft than a shirting fabric and a softer hand than traditional denim or canvas. We think it would be the ideal match for a wide range of projects including pants, light jackets, jumpsuits, and accessories.
To help you better picture what these prints would look like in your wardrobe, we've matched them with some of our favourite indie sewing patterns. Check out our pattern pairings and how we'd style them down below!
