We have 2 pet ducks which live in our back yard. They have these beautiful iridescent flight feathers accenting their otherwise muted brown and white plumage. These feathers, with their striking colors, remind me of how nature loves a fabulous show! You'll love making all sorts of things with this print! Our Featured Artist Liz used several of our prints and laces to make this super cute capsule wardrobe. She took her hack of the Willowdale bra (check out the International Bra Sewing Bee for the class) and made a print bra, then added a riff on the Bravo Bottoms #3 for the bottoms. It looks great with her Lusamine hack that she made from our Through the Looking Glass kit, and I love them together!
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.
