Knitwit Jersey Knit Fabric Mayfair is our versatile, dressy, medium weight jersey knit which drapes well and is uncrushable. Suitable for tops or camisoles, and also for a softly styled dress with gathers or ruching. Skirts such as 6 or 8 gore skirts fall beautifully in Mayfair.
Medium stretch, by which we mean 25%-35% stretch. If your pattern is sized for a low stretch (less then 25%) fabric, you can still use it, but you may need run the garment in. If your pattern is sized for a high stretch (50%) fabric, you can still use it, but you may need to cut out a size bigger.
Knitwit Mayfair Polyester Jersey is two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in one direction only, from selvedge to selvedge. If your pattern is sized for a four way stretch fabric, you can still use it.
Red | Black – Mayfair is being run out and these are the only remaining colours. A similar fabric in a good colour range is Knitwit Jersey Knit Fabric Casino.
