Gingham is a timeless fabric that has been popular since it's creation. And it's easy to see why! It looks great in whatever design it's used, it's washable and it's durable. Gingham originally included solids and stripes, but for most of us today, gingham is synonymous with checks. And, one of the appeals of gingham today is the range of check sizes available. Depending on your pattern and the look you're going for, you can choose small, medium or large gingham checks. It's fun to see the difference in the same Everyday Tank pattern with the two different sizes of gingham prints. They both work so well!
The small gingham in this tank is from Amy's new line of fabric, Stitcher's Garden for RJR Fabrics. A medium size check from Cotton & Steel creates a classic summer look for the second Indygo Junctions Everyday Tank featured here. They both would be so lovely with a sweater to span seasons too!
This large check, also from Cotton & Steel and worn by Amy in Michigan with her son, creates a dramatic feel with a timeless print. The modern silhouette of Indygo Junction's Essential Shift Dress suits this fabric perfectly.
And Indygo Junction's Alphabet Applique lends itself to featuring these prints in a more vintage heirloom way
And the tiny gingham is the perfect fabric for these Patchwork Pincushions.
