What is Cotton Poplin Fabric?

Poplin is a durable, lightweight cotton. It’s not dissimilar to quilting cotton, though of a lighter heft and less prone to creasing.

Cotton Poplin has a distinctive ribbed texture because it is made from two different thicknesses of yarn in a plain, tight weave. It is a lightweight, cool fabric with an easy drape, but is also quite strong. It is perfect for sewing dresses, shirts, tops, shirts, tunics and children’s clothes.

What can I sew with these fabrics?

You can make lovely dresses, tops, blouses, skirts and children’s clothes with these fabrics.  Additionally, they are particularly good for summer wear because they are so soft and lightweight.  Cotton Lawns and Cotton Poplins both resist wrinkles fairly well and our latest additions, printed Stretch Poplins are a great choice for comfortable stylish clothing.

Cotton lawn is a lightweight and breathable fabric which is designed using fine, high count yarns, which results in a silky, untextured feel.

Cotton poplin is more densely woven than cotton lawn and is a light to medium weight cotton fabric.

Cotton Chambrays are plain weave fabrics that feature a coloured yarn in the warp of the fabric and a white yarn in the weft.

All these are perfect for dressmaking, especially for sewing dresses, blouses, tops, shirts, tunics and children’s clothes, made from 100% cotton.

Wash at 30˚ using non-bio liquid and wash the fabric before use, as it is likely to shrink a little. Iron using the appropriate setting for cotton on your iron. Hang to dry naturally or tumble dry on a low setting.
