Firefly Floral is a premium quality scuba double jersey printed in an amazing pastel neon floral design, featuring a vibrant array of exotic flowers and foliage in a heady palette of pinks, corals, dramatic purple, lemons and limes, set against a dark background which resembles a surreal outer space sky, making the vibrant blooms pop like fireflies lighting up at midnight.
The fabric has a wonderful squishy, buoyant, full bodied, drapey handle that boasts an excellent firm bounce back width stretch that's very supportive (ideal for figure hugging styles), the lengthwise stretch is firm but much less pronounced. With all these wonderful qualities and a fine gauge smooth knit, you just have to decide what to make.
Firefly Floral 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. Perhaps try adding a contrasting colour! Don't forget swimwear options too!
