Printed Jersey Knit Blue Lagoon is suitable for tops, soft skirts and dresses – easy-care i.e. doesn’t need ironing and great for travelling.
The garment shown uses KwikSew 3802 which is a perennial favourite and quick to run up. I lengthened the pattern by 10cm through the waist and raised the front neckline by 5cm for winter.
High stretch, by which we mean 50% stretch. If your pattern is sized for a medium stretch (25-35%) fabric, you can still use it, but you may need to take the garment in on the side seams after you have tried it on.
Two way stretch, by which we mean the fabric stretches in one direction only, from selvedge to selvedge, but if your pattern is sized for a four way stretch, you can still use this fabric.
If you need to, brush up on sewing with jersey knit fabrics.
