We say, if you’re going floral, go BIG! This dramatic black, mauve and cerise floral viscose jersey fabric is like a surfer’s paradise in cloth form. There’s a Hawaiian edge to the wild print design on this draping jersey – and it’s large enough almost to be an abstract design. Wear it with monochrome black and white, with purple or pink for sheer indulgence or on its own as a dress for the full impact.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our mauve and cerise floral viscose jersey fabric is a draping single-knit composed primarily of viscose, with 5% elastane. It’s a good medium-weight single-knit with very good opacity for its weight. There’s least a 50% stretch across the width and a more restrained 40% down the length of this fabric.
What does this fabric feel like?
This is a beautifully-smooth, finely-woven jersey with a delightful silky finish which elevates the fabric. It will be very comfortable to wear next to the skin and it’s breathable too.
How does this fabric move?
Our vibrantly black, mauve and cerise floral viscose jersey fabric is very much a draping knit with a fluid movement. You can see how it moves and stretches in this video.

Will I need to line this fabric?
You won’t need to line a shirt, top or tunic made from this fabric, however a dress may require a bodice lining for structure depending on your pattern design. Unless you’re wearing it over bare legs, then you’ll need a half-slip to enable this fabric to move against your body.
What can I make with this fabric?
Tops, tunics and dresses are all options for this wild and wonderful cerise floral viscose jersey fabric. You’ll need to find a pattern intended for a knit fabric; garments with more draping designs will work particularly well, as will those which incorporate elements of ruching and negative ease. With the right pattern, single knit viscose can be a versatile choice for the summer months; it’s breathable and the movement will help move cooler air around your body. We love the look of the ‘Appleton’ Dress from Cashmerette – that wrap top and gently-draping design would be perfect for a bit of drama!
