More and more of you are discovering the delights of viscose fabrics. They take a print well and drape with elegance and life. What’s more, they’re breatheable and handle beautifully. We can assure you that this vibrant pink and olive green printed viscose twill fabric will not disappoint the viscose aficionados amongst you.
The finish and drape on this cerise and olive green printed viscose twill fabric are nothing short of delightful. This is a medium-weight dress fabric with good opacity for its weight – and feels like the classy number it truly is. It swings and ripples given the opportunity – as you can see in this video.
Cut it on the cross for even more movement – yet be reassured that this isn’t a badly-behaved fabric. Smoothed out on the cutting table, you’ll know right away when it’s straight along the grain despite that fine twill weave pattern.
We adore the print pattern here, redolent of a traditional Indian block print design (hence our name) and created with some clever colour contrasting. That’s actually quite a distinct green in the background but the dark cerise design knocks it back to a much more neutral shade. We love the idea of wearing a vibrant yet strangely understated pattern like this as a summer garment. Tops, blouses, tunics and dresses are all options, none of which would require lining above the waist for purposes of modesty. A skirt or dress would need a half-slip or skirt lining to add just a little substance – likewise a fitted bodice would need some sort of structure too. We suggest our Plain 100% cotton lawn fabrics might be just the thing for a summer dress lining – the Berry, Soft purple or Bitter chocolate colourways are all options.
We think the new ‘V-Neck Dress’ Pattern from BurdaStyle would be a lovely way of showcasing the print and the movement in this pink and green printed viscose twill fabric – it could be worn as a dress or a tunic, belted or not.
