We named our final Bamboo Knit Kit for the month of January simply, "Trees". This print depicts perfectly one of those days in the high mountain altitudes where the clouds have descended enough to snuggle into the pine covered mountain valleys and shroud the world in magic. The foggy mistiness softens the deep, forest green of the alpine timberland to give this print almost a pastel feeling. It's a beautiful print for lingerie.
The Trees print featured on the bra is luxurious, with a 4-way stretch and perfect recovery. Bamboo jersey is a great fabric for lingerie -- antibacterial, breathable, soft, light, airy and altogether yummy. Because the print is a 4-way stretch knit you can cover the band of your bra with the print for an all-over look. This kit is only offered in the Larger size so that you will be sure to have enough Trees fabric for whatever you choose to create.
The kit will come with your choice of Frost or Midnight materials underneath. You may choose either Frost or Midnight for your band materials and the channeling for under the cups. If you use Frost, the colors will appear more true. If you choose to go with Midnight it will blend well with the print for a more cohesive look but the colors will be softened. You will also get Frost or Midnight twill tape. If you order self straps you will receive a small piece of white strap elastic to add a bit of flexibility to the strap. We found it nearly impossible to match the beautiful deep green of the trees in this fabric, so we are offering only Frost for your elastics, but rest assured, our Frost is just perfect with this print. The hook and eye unit will also be Frost. Some gals like to use Spacer Foam under the cups to add a bit more body to the cup, and you can order a kit cut of spacer in Frost or Midnight for this purpose.

Remember to cut your fashion jersey a bit smaller than your more stable fabric. Cut as small as 1/16" for tiny spans and up to 1/4" for larger spans. Saturate your bamboo with starch and let it dry flat, then sew it without needing to wrestle with the softness of the fabric.
