When I was selecting the prints that we would be turning into fabric, I showed a friend this print. She loved it and exclaimed how it was just like something that she had seen from Dolce and Gabanna. She showed that garment to me, and this print became our "haute couture" selection. Of course, she had to have some of the print the last time we had this one in stock (it went super fast, so jump on it if you like it!) and she made this darling Josey bra with our print and materials and some lace from her stash. The base fabric was different last time -- this time we have glorious bamboo! I love how this print brings a lovely vintage vibe to play. We chose to bring back this print for our period panty collection, but it works with everything! To me, this fabric looks best with Midnight, Bunny Pink, Merlot, She Shed, Antique Rose, Flame, Canary, Lemon Lover, Clover and Seafoam.
Our soft and luxurious Bamboo Jersey is a beautiful fabric for so many things! Our bamboo lycra jersey is a great choice for bra cups when paired with a stable cup fabric like sheer cup lining, and you can jazz up your bra by covering the band with the same or a coordinating print. It also works well for a T-shirt bra. It's especially great for panties. You can make a matching bra and panty set, and the 4-way stretch of the lycra jersey makes it very comfortable. Bamboo jersey is also a natural for men's boxer briefs. Every man that I have heard of loves his bamboo jersey boxer briefs!
This fabric is opaque and provides great coverage. There is a 50% to 75% stretch in the fabric in the both dimensions. To make it super easy to sew, saturate it with liquid starch to tame the stretch while sewing, and cut it 1/8" to 1/4" smaller than the stable fabric when making the non-stretch elements of your garment. It is light and bouncy and it doesn't ravel. Our bamboo is also very durable- during testing, we've learned it can withstand unpicking seams without getting small holes like many knits.
Bamboo jersey prints, like all our fabrics, are sold by the half-yard, and average 60" wide.
