Ok, so we're in love with this one! This new floral scuba print was due to hit the high streets in spring 2017 with one of the top UK ladies fashion retailers. Fabworks now stocks this up-to-the-minute print, which features this season's most sought after colours with a classic floral print in a lovely cool lilac shade.
Composition: Polyester and spandex
Pattern repeat: 69cm/27"
Ravishing tones of lilac predominate throughout this beautiful floral scuba. Its cool silvery lilac background has a subtle matte sheen with a smooth yet very slightly crepe-like feel, providing a superb base for the lush printed exotic blooms that adorn the surface. Soft to touch yet densely knitted, forming a strong and super stretchy fabric (great width and a good length stretch). Its medium weight has a soft drape quality, which is absolutely perfect for pretty spring dresses!
Rich creamy roses with orange centres compliment the deep lilac tones of smaller cabbage roses and orchid flowers. Dark blue/green and shadowy navy foliage add further depth, alongside deep purple iris-like flowers. Smaller bouquets of roses and with hibiscus blossoms further accentuate the sophisticated floral pattern, with the hibiscus blossom having an almost luminous quality.
Whether you want to make a figure flattering body-con style dress, sheath dress or retro '50s style circle skirt, skater dress and much more, this stunning fabric will make you feel fabulous with its feminine colours and soft drape quality. Also great for jackets (boxy or bomber), sweatshirt style tops, boxy crop tops and neat pencil/tube skirts.
