Who loves a bit of a vintage vibe? I do!! We cherry picked this print just for those of us who love an echo of an earlier time. For this month we're returning to a simple life when kitchens were red and aqua and cherry picking was a family pastime. Don't you see the geraniums on the porch?
Our two prints this month reflect the sweet simplicity of the early mid-century period. Think about a picnic in the orchard on a sunny summer day, then going home to your oh-so-darling home with a warm breeze tickling the the grasses and making the curtains dance a little jig. Cherry Picking Time coordinates with Cherry, Jade, Chickie and Frost. Check out our Geranium print for a fun coordinate. All our kits this month coordinate for a darling capsule wardrobe.
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.
