Carmen's Roses is a first rate scuba jersey printed with spectacular photographic quality rich orange red roses set against a black background. There's a very Latino femme fatale style to this beautiful scuba fabric. You could also wear it in a tattoo and rock chick style.
The fabric has a wonderful squishy, buoyant, full bodied, drapey handle that boasts a good firm bounce back stretch that's very supportive (ideal for figure hugging styles), the lengthwise stretch is firm but less pronounced. With all of these wonderful qualities and a fine gauge smooth knit, you just have to decide what to make.
Carmen's Roses is perfect for flirty and feminine styles such as '50s fit & flare dresses, wiggle skirts with ruffled hems (very Spanish), figure hugging body con dresses & pencil or tube skirts, eye-catching bomber jackets (add black cuffing to complete the look!). Other fab makes are boxy jackets, boxy crop tops, cocoon style jackets and coats. Great for putting over sleeveless dresses for summer parties and weddings. Duster coat and kimono style jackets too.
Think outside the box and use this wonderful fabric to make sportswear and sweatshirts too. Perhaps try adding a contrasting colour! Don't forget swimwear options too!
