- DRESS FABRIC:
Most light to mid weight woven fabrics with a SOFT DRAPE are recommended for this pattern. Polyester crepe, polyester, rayon, nylon and tencel are best. Soft draping cotton and cotton blends will also work.
Our samples are made up as follows:
Grey - polyester chiffon
Cream with floral pattern - polyester
Blue & pink floral - 100% light weight cotton
Red & black - nylon
*Please also note that all (new) fabric should be pre-washed in case of shrinkage. Some fabrics will not shrink but 100% cotton,linen and rayon are almost guaranteed to shrink. It doesn't hurt to be safe and remove any dodgy chemical build up that may have occurred during printing anyway.
Suitable for Confident Beginners. The Bellbird Top is able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams.
