We’re determined to prevail in our continued search for non-floral print patterns. We’ve nothing against flowers – who could? It’s just that there are so many other things to choose from. Leaves, for example. This delightful black and dusty pink printed viscose jersey fabric is boldly painted with leaves in the most autumnal way possible – so perfect for the current season. Moreover, it’s been applied to a lovely-quality jersey for which we think you’ll find any number of wardrobe applications.
What kind of fabric is this?
Our pink printed viscose jersey fabric is a draping single-knit knit. We’d describe it as sitting towards the lighter-weight end of the medium-weight single knit bracket. It’s the kind of fabric that’s difficult to gauge from a snippet, but once you have a metre or two in your hand, you can feel that it has substance and character.
What does this fabric feel like?
As you’d expect from a viscose jersey fabric, this is a fabric with a very soft, smooth handle. It will be comfortable to wear next to the skin and it’s breatheable too.
How does this fabric move?
Our leafy, dusty pink printed viscose jersey fabric is very much a draping knit with a fluid movement. It has approximately 35% stretch across its width and rather less than that down the length of the fabric. 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 pretty black and pink printed 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.
This classic ‘Olivia’ Wrap Dress from Named Clothing would be a way of making an elegant statement with this jersey.
