Come on now, dance it out… No apologies whatsoever – we couldn’t resist the sheer exuberance of this vibrant floral digital printed peachskin fabric. It was those massive golden bloooms that first drew us to it – and then the rich blue and purple backgrounds – and -well – the general outrageousness of the print as a whole.
This is a lightweight peachskin fabric with a tissue-like handle – yet it’s perfectly stable and has very good opacity. It’s one of those fabrics which we’ll excuse for being a polyester since we think that the right pattern with a fabric like this won’t be overly hot and sticky. We’d suggest just building in plenty of ease and movement will combat any potential discomfort during hot weather. Our floral digital printed peachskin fabric has a wonderful drape; rippling beautifully given the opportunity as you can see in this video.
With that in mind, we’re looking at dresses (or tops and tunics for that matter) that will make the most of this fluid movement. A lining shouldn’t be necessary for summer wear over bare legs – however should you feel the need then a skirt lining in any one of our Plain 100% cotton lawn fabrics would do the trick we’re sure.
On the pattern front, we’re drawn to one with plenty of waft-ability – like this Cross-backed Maxi Dress pattern from BurdaStyle.
However you don’t need to go the whole hog – an easy-to-wear off-the-shoulder top over denim would be stunning too, we think. Finally (just so you know) we think our statement floral digital peachskin fabric works a treat with our ‘Café Bleu’ rippling navy blue Irish linen fabric. It picks up the rich indigo blues and purples with gusto – and gusto is just what this fabric deserves.
Finally, just in case you need a hand with the dance stuff, we offer you…
