Call them nosegays, posies, buttonholes or ’boutonnières’ – we just fell in love with the delicate pink bunches of flowers that litter this black and pink floral viscose fabric. The vibrant scarlet and pink centres to the blooms, together with the black ground, prevent this fabric from being too saccharine. It has just a little edge – as well as some artistry in the way the floral elements have been painted.
Use it on the cross or hang it straight – this is a fabric that loves to flow and ripple, yet it’s a stable fabric which will be straightforward to work with. You can see how our pretty black and pink floral viscose fabric moves and drapes in this video.
This is is a lovely-quality, soft-handled, medium-to-lighter weight European viscose fabric. The weave is plain and fairly close, with good opacity due to the print colour. You’ll be just fine with an unlined blouse or tunic and for less formal, more carefree occasions an unlined dress in this fabric will be perfectly acceptable. However a silhouette is going to be visible against the sun and a plain cotton lawn lining or a half-slip might be advisable depending on your pattern design.
We think our rippling black and pink floral viscose fabric will be perfect for summer tops and blouses, warmer-weather dresses and tunics. It’ll pop when worn with white separates but has plenty of impact to stand on its own.
You might want to consider a relaxed dress design such as this ‘Jade’ dress from Style Arc which would be perfect for our black and pink floral viscose fabric.
The Japanese influence in the design would be echoed by the restrained nature of the floral print too.
