This print is an echo of the days of Art Nouveau, with its stylized forms and rich colors. I love the movement in the print, it's graceful, almost like a ballet. We love these rich colors this season -- you can see how nicely everything works together. Today I put this print together with our Woodlands lace from a couple of winters ago, and it was heaven! I highly recommend this combination, working with Evergreen and Navy. It's stunning! The colors Pumpkin, Sand, Butterscotch, Evergreen, Mallard, Surf, River and Ink all go with this print.
Our Featured Artist Liz made this super cute babydoll using the Sahaara pattern as a base with this print as a part of her November capsule. Don't you love how if goes with her Thursday Thongs in Evergreen? So cute!!
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.
