Wikipedia: “Cambric or chambray is a lightweight plain weave cotton cloth used as fabric for lace and needlework. Cambric is also known as batiste in a large part of the world…The chambray shirt was iconic of 1980s and 1990s casual wear fashions.[citation needed] Variations of the chambray workshirt, in blue and other colors, are sold by inexpensive makers as well as high fashion houses such as Ralph Lauren, who sold them for up to $270 US in 2010.”

Yes, there is denim. But how about it’s lightweight cousin, chambray? Lani recently bought a light grey shirdress, and my head was going to pop off b/c it was so preppy and fun. How cute would it be to recycle/reuse/embellish on this fabric?
