View the other photographs to see the scale of Chambray Stripe - Rose Jacquard and know exactly what you're buying!
Chambray Stripe - Rose Jacquard is a wonderful, pre-shirred/elasticated fabric that boasts so many uses. A chambray-style fabric with a wonderful twill-woven, vertical striped base cloth, woven horizontally across the weft, with an elasticated jacquard weave. The jacquard weave features 3cm stripes with a rose design and 1cm stripes with tiny daisy and leaf designs. Shades of light and medium denim feature throughout the design.
The horizontal elasticated bands create an even and ruched fullness, with the fabric boasting a relaxed width wise stretch and a stable, soft and drapey handle to the length.
Reminiscent of printed cotton fabrics that were pre-shirred for little girls' summer dresses and sun tops, use Chambray Stripe in a similar way for making easy tops with spaghetti straps or summer dresses with easy-tie straps. Use a similar or contrasting colour cotton chambray for better strength and stability.
A little more creative? Try Bardot style tops and dresses. Utilise the horizontal band's pattern repeat to create elasticated areas on garments, such as sleeves that fit and flare. Use this technique for yoke details on bodices too.
Other simple uses include boat-necked tunic tops and dresses, simply bind the neckline or add facings.
Pattern repeat: 21.5cm/8.5"
