Description

This fine cotton jersey fabric boasts a floral vignette pattern featuring blooming peonies. It was designed exclusively for Tissura. Pink, sky blue, yellow and burgundy – all these colors vivify the white background. Made of pure cotton, our jersey has a remarkably soft hand and a billowing drape. With its 2-way stretch and smooth finish, it begs to be made into a bodycon top, a lined dress or skirt.

What is Cotton?

Cotton is one of the most popular natural fibers used for textiles and clothing. Known for thousands of years, its fibers, either short or long, can be woven or knitted into various fabrics such as lawn, batiste, poplin, jersey or velvet. The most common weaves for cotton include plain, twill and satin. Cotton cloth is easy to handle and comfortable to wear all year round. Soft, breathable and absorbent, it is a go-to choice for summer apparel. Lightweight fabrics are best suitable for shirts, blouses and dresses; medium-weight – for trousers, skirts, dresses; heavy – for trousers, jackets and outwear.

Cotton Jersey Fabric

Cotton jersey is a knit fabric with lengthwise ribs on the face side and crosswise ribs on the reverse. Due to its weave, jersey material is stretchy and has a flexible drape. The most common applications include tops, dresses, skirts, T-shirts, home clothing. Cotton jersey has a soft hand and is very comfy. A touch of elastane makes it stretch even more and increases its recovery. The weight of jersey material may vary from extremely lightweight to heavy. The name ‘jersey’ comes from the Isle of Jersey. With a wide range of colors and prints, jersey knit fabric is an all-season material for women’s apparel. Solid cotton knit looks wonderful in midi and maxi dresses, tanks and tunics, while printed jersey fabric is suitable for more fashion-forward looks.

How to Sew with Cotton Jersey Knit

Knowing your material is essential if you want to sew perfect garments. Here are a couple of tips that can help you turn this fine cloth into a beautiful piece of clothing.

  1. Always prepare your fabric before cutting. Pre-washing is not allowed, instead use a steam iron. Let it dry flat on the horizontal surface not to damage its appearance.
  2. Make sure you do not stretch the fabric. Lay it flat on the table and secure it with fine pins. You may also use pattern weights to keep it in place. Follow the direction of stretch: it should go around the body.
  3. Use water soluble and vanishing pencils to mark the fabric. Avoid any kind of ink as it can easily damage jersey. If you prefer chalk, test it on a small piece of fabric to see if it leaves any oil mark.
  4. Sharp scissors are a key to success. Make sure you avoid snags when cutting.
  5. If you have a regular sewing machine, you can use a twin needle, but the best machine to sew jersey is a serger. A ballpoint needle is perfect for knit fabrics, because it does not tear holes in the cloth. We recommend using polyester all-purpose threads.
  6. Press cotton jersey with a warm steam iron, paying attention to the edges; flatten them well to ease the cutting and sewing process. Do not iron wet fabric – it can stretch beyond repair.
  7. You may use interfacing to keep your jersey from overstretching. We recommend stabilizing your shoulder seams with cotton tape, and neckline and armholes – with special non-woven tape.
