The Bellbird Top is very simple and able to be sewn with or without an overlocker (serger) to neaten the seams.
WOVEN fabrics : Fabrics with a soft drape work best for the Bellbird Top.
We recommend rayon, silk, viscose, tencel, crepe and polyester (incl chiffon). Light weight linen, cotton and cotton blends work OK -but stiff cottons will not get the best results.
Our samples are made up as follows:
Grey - polyester chiffon
Salmon pink floral (V Neck pic) - rayon
Cream with floral pattern - polyester
Blue & pink floral - 100% light weight cotton
Red & black - nylon
