GONE NOW – MANY THANKS
I get the very most wear out of great stretch tops that I can dress up or down. Hence I have bought a lot of viscose, rayon and cotton stretch fabric. Far too much.
I set a goal about how many of my stretch fabrics I have to relinquish. Despite the number that I have accumulated, this has been one of my more difficult tasks.
One reason they work so well for me is that I can take a basic T-shirt pattern and with just a few pictures of Anthr0pol0gie stretch tops – they do the best out of any of them in my opinion – I can transform all these pieces into endless varied designs. All Anthr0 –
On top of that, I seem to have no luck getting decent stretch fabric in Australia for a reasonable price. I like the viscose, rayon and cotton blends with lycra, these are the best quality and the most wearable fabrics. Here the few that come along seem to be priced quite high. I get my stretch from a place in the NYC garment district that supplies most online stores. They get most of the fabric from the French mills. There are rows and rows of racks of great stretch fabric.
So, this one is clearly colourful. Large garlands of flowers, blue, oyster and dashes of pale yellow highlight a singing red background. It is all very tropical to me. This is the perfect colour scheme and pattern to wear with jeans. I’d also throw over a dark blue or black cardigan when the breeze moves in.
This piece is a rayon/lycra blend stretch. It measures 150cm x 2 metres. The price is $23 a metre/$46 for the piece.
I can post this in the smallest satchel (with tracking) at $8.25. Please see here for full details on payment and posting. If interested, please click on the email below; fabric details will appear automatically and I will get back to you asap. (Australia delivery only thanks).
