The clue is in the name with this beautiful viscose mix shirting / dressmaking fabric. Our Softest Stripes - Magenta & Navy is the most beautifully soft fabric, you will have to feel it to believe it. Woven with an evenly repeating horizontal striped design in a fine twill weave, combining the two complimentary tones of navy and magenta. This dazzling striped combination is the same tones as our Precious Gems Stripe fabric so will combine together for fabulous creations!
Boasting a stable handle across the width and length, plus a soft drape quality perfect for creating a host of excellent dressmaking patterns. Start with simple pop-over, boxy T-shirt styles, then simple shirts, shirt dresses, elongated shirts or pleated or gathered shirt-waister styles. Play with the direction of the stripes and use to create striking effects like in the Vogue V9397 where the bodice and skirt pieces are cut in different directions to maximum effect. Use this versatile fabric to create bohemian prairie dress styles, with full gathered, tiered skirts Stitchless TV's Pontoon Tier Dress is a really easy pattern to follow and will look stunning in Softest Stripes - Magenta & Navy or combine this with Precious Gems Stripe for maximum impact.
This super stable and hard-wearing fabric is suitable for everything from statement summer dresses and shirts to classic pyjamas, boxer shorts and classic lounge wear, robes and kimonos. The superfine nylon fibres on the warp fibres give extra strength without the awful man made feel. All you feel is the super soft viscose. This will make a useful addition to your crafting stash, perfect for teaming with similar jewel toned designs for striking patchwork and applique projects.
