We love an interesting colour palette at ClothSpot and this pink floral viscose challis fabric has that in spades. The background pink colour is surprisingly fresh yet complex and is contrasted with cobalt and ice blue, dark purple-brown and flashes of fiery orange. The scale and nature of the pattern gives this light-to-medium-weight dress fabric a beautiful sense of movement.
What kind of fabric is this?
This is is a lovely-quality, medium-to-lighter weight viscose fabric. It’s been woven in a plain weave pattern. The print design is in a large scale (see our image with a ruler) and provides the opportunity to place the different colours and design elements strategically across your garment.
What does this fabric feel like?
Our pink floral viscose challis fabric has a particularly smooth handle. It will be cool and very comfortable next to the skin.
How does this fabric move?
As with most viscose fabrics, this is a cloth that loves to flow and ripple. You can see how this unexpected pink floral printed viscose challis fabric moves and drapes in this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
The weave of this fabric is plain and fairly close, with very good opacity for its weight. You’ll be just fine with an unlined blouse or tunic and for less formal, more carefree occasions an unlined dress or skirt in this fabric will be perfectly acceptable, especially in draped designs. However a silhouette may be visible against the sun and so depending the design of a dress or skirt, a plain cotton lawn lining or a half-slip might be advisable.
What can I make with this fabric?
We think our surprisingly complex pink floral viscose challis fabric will be perfect for tops, shirts, tunics and dresses too. Simple designs will make best use of its extraordinary print. The ‘Sadie’ Top from Style Arc will use the drape of this fabric in the distinctive sleeves and the simple shape will work well as a layer under a jacket or cardigan too.
