    I have some of the Spoonflower fabric and wouldn't recommend it for a shirt, as it's printed on a white fabric that's digitally printed on one side. So the interior of the shirt would be a stark white, which to my mind at least, would seem odd.

    7-8 oz tartan fabric is available here: https://www.tartantime.uk/lightweigh...-tartan-fabric

    I have no idea how it would work out as a shirt material but it seems to be about the lightest available in wool and can be had in Logan tartan.

    This site may help in working out how much fabric you'll need: https://sewingiscool.com/how-much-fa...for-a-shirt-t/

    Are you a member of your clan society? It might be worth checking with them to see if they have a source for clan-specific tartan material in light weight fabric. Many of the clan societies have done special projects in the past like this for flags, banners, apparel, etc. Even if they haven't, they might be able to ask the members to see if anyone has a source, or if there's interest in a special group buy.

    The printed pattern is rarely perfectly on the grain of the fabric and I find it really annoying when trying to make garments with such stuff.
    I have several pieces of cloth where the pattern is so obviously skewed that I can't bring myself to use it for what I intended it make.

    It is far better to have the yarn dyed and the pattern woven in. If the fabric is skewed when you get it, having been carelessly rolled onto the bolt it can be persuaded to return to the true line, or just washed and hung up level and it with right itself.
