Oceanic Printed Lace is a unique one-off Avoca dressmaking fabric, this fine mesh and vertically banded polyester lace fabric is printed with a mesmerising design resembling swirling currents within a moody ocean. Dark and inky blue tones combine with lighter sky blue’s and organic seaweed like greens which seem to float amongst this watery blue sea and rich sand too. Boasting good width wise stretch and excellent bounce back stretch, Oceanic Printed Lace also has a lightweight drape quality too.
The denim blue tones within Oceanic Printed Lace makes this fabric perfect for teaming up with denim fabrics to create unique designs, go for angular cut hemlines on tunics made from a mixture of complimentary coloured jerseys, using Oceanic to create frilled and flounce details (take a look at Joe Browns clothing range for inspiration.)
Use the ocean themed design to make mermaid inspired costumes for dance wear and theatrical purposes. Layer over beige or blue jersey to create floaty maxi dresses and skirts too.
Also ideal for beach cover-ups, kaftans and sarongs. Need a light weight shrug to cover your arms over a sleeveless dress? Oceanic will make ideal tie fronted shrugs that will wash and wear easily.
