Jersey fabric is a soft and stretchy type of cloth used for creating draped clothing. Its weight varies a lot, which gives you freedom in styling this fabric as you desire. Silk jersey fabric is an excellent option for lightweight draped garments, such as evening dresses and women's tops. Cotton jersey is common for dresses and suits, while wool jersey is normally used for suits and jackets.
Jersey fabrics are mainly valued for elastic properties, hygroscopicity and air permeability. They are perfectly drapable and not prone to wrinkling, which can help you hide figure flaws. Since such fabrics are easy to care for, they are ideal for travelling.
