Karmina Mesh Knit detail
Stunning asian inspired warm toned print on supple nylon/lycra semi-sheer mesh net. 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.
Perfect for a T-shirt. This is a fabric to use double if you want more coverage...make the body of the T double, and the sleeve a single layer. Perfect weight for right now, and makes a great layering piece when the weather cools down. To see how easy it is to sew a double layer knit, click on TUTORIALS on the navigation bar of this website and go to page 4.
I pre-shrink by tossing in the washer & drier, then once the garment is made, wash on gentle and air dry.
