This is pale indigo organic cotton shirting from Japanese Mill Nihon Menpu. It is soft, light and can be sewn up using either side of the fabric. One side is paler with a slubby striated texture. The other is darker and has a cross-hatch texture. It would be lovely in a denim shirt, summer jumpsuit, full length dress, pjs, (almost) anything goes!
