Breezy Point Mesh Knit - Detail - was $15, now $6
Gorgeous rendition of a modern ikat design in shades of blue punctuated with bits of red and shots of green on a semi-sheer nylon mesh knit from a SF designer who creates the patterns and has the fabric printed in Germany so both the quality of the fabric and the print color are the finest european quality. Could be used single or double layer. For tops, T's, cardigans. I've seen this fabric used in 2 layers for skirts and dresses in ready to wear. Very soft and drapey, has a bit of lycra for stretch recovery.
Use this fabric to make a simple little T to layer over a camisole or under a sweater or jacket. Use double, or layer it on top of a plain color, use for trim, sheer sleeves, binding, overlay. Hem the edge or take a cue from RTW and leave the edge raw. Nylon mesh is being used extensively in ready to wear in Europe and here at home. It is a surprise how easy it is to sew with.
I pre-shrink by tossing in the washer & drier, then once the garment is made, wash on gentle and air dry.
