Printed Jersey Knit Diagonal Stripe Multicolour is suitable for tops, soft skirts and dresses – easy-care i.e. doesn’t need ironing and great for travelling.
This print has an interesting design as the actual diagonals vary across the width of the fabric. This can be seen on the garment photos of the front and back views. I combined it with Heavy Bamboo Magenta. Any straight through dress pattern could be used.
This print is one where it is probably impossible to match stripes on seams. The idea is to just enjoy it, cut it out and run it up without worrying about matching anything. Whatever you get will be interesting.
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.
