I absolutely love this print! It has a holiday vibe, but it is completely appropriate to use any time of year, although I think I like it best in winter. The birds are so cute! They're robins, but they have personality! Don't you love the plaid in the wings? And then you add the little flowers and you have the cutest thing ever. This print works wonderfully with both of our December kit of the month laces -- Candy Cane and Peppermint Swirl. Hmmm, this makes me think of a peppermint mocha! Yummmm... The best accent colors for this print are Flame, Wedgewood, Arbor Green, Frost and Dahlia. Crimson works well too, and I would choose this color for elastics if you're working with the Candy Cane lace. Please understand that Crimson is prone to dye flaws on fabrics, so bear this in mind if you ask us to dye this color onto fabrics for you. It is a limited edition color for this very reason.
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.
