Jersey - Snakeskin
A beautiful light/medium 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.
Recommended Sewing Needles: Ballpoint (80)
Recommended Stitches: zig zag/ stretch stitch (2.2-2.5)
