Turquoise & Sand Leopard Jersey Suedette

per metre
Fabric Code: C5a20

Fabric technology is enabling the most amazing fabric manufacturing, which emulate or are inspired by products which would usually be animal based. Turquoise & Sand Leopard Jersey Suedette is an example of this clever technology!

This light/medium weight jersey fabric has a short (suede like) pile which is super soft (on the face side). The reverse side (which doesn't have the pile) still maintains a super soft texture too. Boasting the feel of a very fine buckskin suede, the clever jersey base has good width wise stretch due to some added elastane, plus a soft and malleable drape quality with good medium weight.

The base cloth of this fine jersey suedette boasts a lovely pale sand hue and is then printed with a striking small scale leopard spot design. The characteristic black outlines are enhanced with centres of rich turquoise. Flecks of the turquoise hue create the impression of a directional pile in the animal print.

With its '80s retro vibe this fabric is perfect if you're looking to create eye-catching, 'power dressing' pieces - fashion yourself a super smart (and comfortable) shirt dress with patch pockets & self fabric belt for a safari chic style (shoulder pads optional). Other easy makes are simple T-shirt style dresses (add some elastic and in seam pockets for a practical make). Dolman / Bat wing sleeve tops (and dresses), light weight cardigan style coats and simple jogger style pants too! For inspiration look to Wendy Ward's book - A Beginners Guide to Sewing With Knit Fabrics, for patterns and how to cut and sew a wardrobe full of practical comfy garments.
