Fabric of the Week: Asymmetric Jersey Print

Our ‘Fabric of the Week’ from 20th June 2016 to 25th June 2016 is our Asymmetric Jersey Print

This soft and lightweight material is a perfect for making your own flattering and stylish dresses and skirts as well as being comfy enough to make yourself some lounger pants for those cosy days inside. The neutral tones and asymmetric pattern make this a fabric staple for any dressmaker or home-sewer.

We used this material, to make up this fabulous, figure-hugging wrap around dress, using a nice and easy McCalls sewing pattern, #6884 – which you can purchase in store if you want to recreate the look.
