We love the versatility of a superior-quality cotton jersey – and this exuberant pink and grey floral cotton jersey fabric is a fabulous summer find. The pewter-grey background is an unexpected but highly-effective foil for all the tropical activity in shades of pink red, purple, green and soft gold. We think it will be the perfect accompaniment for colour-blocked trousers or on its own as a relaxed t-shirt dress.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our vibrant pink and grey floral cotton jersey fabric is a versatile medium-weight single-knit fabric. It’s a cotton fabric with 5% elastane to provide a resilient stretch-and-return of approximately 40% both down the length and across the width of the fabric. The yarn used is fine and the knit is close, providing a fabric with very good opacity for its weight.
What does this fabric feel like?
The fine knit means that this is a smooth fabric with a soft feel. However it isn’t a floppy fabric – it has good structure and resilience.
How does this fabric move?
Our colourful grey floral cotton jersey fabric isn’t a fluid knit – but it hangs and swings with character. You can see how it drapes and stretches in this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
You won’t need to line a t-shirt, top or tunic; this jersey is substantial enough to cope in a single layer for most types of garment. However a skirt or dress would need a half-slip in order for it to move against the body, unless you’re wearing it over bare legs. Which as a dress, we probably would, given the relaxed nature of this fabric.
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops, tunics, dresses and even lounge trousers would all be options for this classic single-knit. It’s a fabulous base layer for casual dressing and has sufficient stretch and opacity for leggings too. We think the ‘Stasia’ Tee from Sew Liberated would be a great opportunity for a fabric with the stretch and opacity of this grey floral cotton jersey fabric. A wide scoop neck would balance out a pair of wide-legged trousers.
