This is a beautiful unbleached cotton fabric with a fancy weave and is decorated with a tricolor stripe. It's lightweight and a little translucent. Depending on what garment you're making you could consider adding a lining.
It makes a beautiful caftan, a top, a skirt or even a dress. How about using this fabric to create a shirt dress or shift dress? A nice wrap top? You’re going to enjoy it all spring and summer!
The stripe is horizontal but you can perfectly use it vertically or at an angle. Play around!
Cousette is created in 2009 in France, the love and passion of Cecilia, a fashion stylist with 10 years in the industry. All fabrics are created with love and intent, with the purpose of offering a little gift to ourselves.

You can order samples through the shop by selecting ‘Buy a sample’ of the product and color you prefer. A sample costs €0,50. Samples are small pieces of fabric (a few cm2) to help you decide on the perfect fabric for your next sewing project. From these small pieces, you can determine the color, type of weave/knit, and feel of the fabric. The samples are sent in an envelope through regular mail (PostNL). You will not be able to track the envelope. Samples are shipped within 1-2 workdays.
Shipping in NL is free of charge. At checkout please choose the free shipping option ‘Only Samples’. If you want to have the samples shipped to Belgium or Germany shipping costs are €2,-. It is possible to order samples and have them shipped to other countries. In this case, the default shipping rate of a package is calculated at check-out.
Products that are excluded from the sample service: deadstock fabrics (as they are limited edition), sewing patterns, sewing magazines, and sewing thread.
