Gingham fabric, recognized by its signature checked pattern of white interspersed with a color, is a light and bright summer staple that has been around for centuries. The checks come in a variety of sizes ranging from 1/16 of an inch to 1 inch. Gingham is made from lightweight, plain woven cotton. Poly cotton gingham is lighter and more transparent than 100% cotton gingham. Both kinds are used for dresses, skirts, and shirts for both adults and children, or for curtains and tablecloths.
