Jersey - Red
A beautiful light weight fabric that would be ideal for t-shirts, skirts or dresses
Jersey fabric is ideal for dressmaking; knitted rather than woven, 'jerseys' have a varying amount of stretch- some are very soft and others more structured. Suitable for tops, dresses, skirts, wrap garments and patterns that require all way stretch fabrics. Jersey dress patterns often require less pattern pieces and have a shorter construction process as they stretch to fit rather than requiring complex pattern piecing or darts. Ensure you are using the correct machine needles and stitches that stretch to ensure maximum success with your project.
If you are in any doubt about care instructions please always test a sample first to find the most suitable way to wash your chosen fabrics, as we cannot accept liability for fabrics washed or treated incorrectly. WE STRONGLY ADVISE AGAINST TUMBLE DRYING.
I boiught some of the red jersey from the sewing Institute to complement the dark grey ponte roma jersey and to make an applique design and line the hood on a little hoodie for my two year old grandson.......I washed the fabric prior to cutting out and made the garment with no difficulties as always with fabric from Lucy.......excellent quality as always.....thank you!
