Imagine this gently-draping ivory floral viscose fabric as a field scattered with meadow flowers. Cornflowers, poppies and other wildflowers are scattered across it, picked out delicately with pops of colour that tone beautifully with other shades in your summer wardrobe. Our ivory floral viscose fabric has a very soft handle and falls with elegance, however it also has a stable weave structure and distinct life to the folds it creates.
The 100% viscose composition of our ivory floral viscose fabric makes it an excellent choice for warmer weather, since it’s cool and breathable. This is a plain-woven viscose fabric which has the opacity of a fabric somewhere between a cotton lawn and a plain-woven cotton fabric. A blouse or tunic will simply require a little attention to be paid to undergarments however if you decide to opt for a dress you will probably want to line it, in which case our Plain 100% cotton lawn fabrics would work beautifully and keep you cool. Our pastoral ivory floral viscose fabric fabric has a beautifully soft hand and a fabulous drape as you can see from this video.
This is a fabric that would work for a less structured, more draping dress design. Gathers, pleats and ruching would all work with elegance and without adding bulk to your garment. Wrap blouses, softly-draping tops and tunics over chambray summer trousers and vintage-styled tea dresses are all options you might want to consider. We think this selection of draping summer tunics in New Look 6414 would make the most of the movement and delicacy of our ivory floral viscose fabric – but do let us know if you’ve got a personal favourite!
