Want to branch out with your wardrobe for the new year? New me resolution! Well, there is no better way than to start out with flocked prints! What are flocked fabrics? They are fabrics that have been applied with adhesive to create a pattern from monofilament fibers like velvet, rayon, and polyester. Other versions of flocked fabrics are prints with fabric printed on top of the existing print. When using flocked prints the key is to use patterns that have simple seams to create your new looks!
All seam allowances are 1/2″ unless otherwise stated. See chart below for sizing specifications. Note, this specific pattern is available up to a size 30.
Tip 1: You can mix prints together to create a fully printed look.
Tip 2: Pair a printed top or bottom with an existing non-printed piece you already have in your closet for a more toned-down ensemble.
The more simple top, the easier it is to sew. Fewer seams lets the print of the fabric be shown more and reduce bulk in areas.
Dresses with darts or princess seams are the best way to go when using flocked fabric.
Most flocked fabrics aren’t super stretchy, so it’s best to use pant patterns that are more loose-fitting like the ones below.
