Timberland Trunk from the Art Gallery Fabric Hello, Bear range by Bonnie Christine. This 100% PIMA cotton voile fabric features outlines of pine trees in white on a peachy-cream background.
Voile is a lightweight, semi-sheer, woven fabric that is 100% cotton. Voile tends to have a higher thread count and a tighter weave than most cotton fabrics, making it very soft and silky to the touch. This substrate is known for its light drape. Not only is it lightweight but breathable which makes it great for summer dresses, skirts, tops and more! Voile sometimes needs to be lined to make it wearable because it might get too transparent.
It’s recommended to sew with a size 65/9 needle if possible due to its tighter weave. French seams are usually used for this type of fabric. Hems can be top stitched by machine or hand-rolled.

Art Gallery’s designs are printed on 100% premium PIMA cotton which has an exceptionally high thread count similar to Egyptian Cotton and a very fine weave. AGF PIMA cotton is grown in the USA. PIMA cotton is softer, stronger, and longer-lasting than one made of short staple cotton, making it more ecologically sound. Standard 100 OEXO-TEX means that the fabric is thoroughly tested for the presence of any harmful chemicals. More information on this can be found here.
AGF’s guide to voile care:
- Wash warm, normal cycle
- Tumble dry low
- Use only non-chlorine bleach
- Use warm iron
- Fabric shrinkage is minimal (about 3%)
