Rainbow Leopard - Stretch Velour Jersey is a vibrant and show-stopping fabric that's not only a treat to the eyes! Read on to appreciate all its quirky qualities.
Rainbow Leopard this top-quality peach skin like stretch velour is printed onto a white base fabric with a black background creating an impact for a riot of vivid rainbow coloured leopard spots.
Lovers of colour and fun graphic designs will adore this fun fabric with all your favourite colour combinations, pinks and greens, reds yellows and oranges sit happily alongside blissful blues and all the candy colours in between. All of the colours are saturated and the quality fine knit construction means that even when the fabric is stretched the design does not overly distort.
Rainbow Leopard has the look and feel of a super silky extra-fine velour with a resemblance to suedette and peach skin. The incredibly soft pile is short but feels extremely silky, combined with the lightweight but high elastane content producing a super malleable feel almost like the softest chamois suede cloth.
You have to feel this to believe it. The 50% width wise stretch and 30% on the length make this slinky fabric super stretchy and bouncy, perfect for clothing which requires a 4-way retentive stretch.
Rainbow Leopard will make superb carnival, festival and dancewear. The stretch quality makes it ideal for close-fitting bodysuits, bandeau tops, leggings, fit and flare trousers and dresses. Treat like any other single jersey and create fun T-shirts - break the design up by using it alongside a coordinating, contrasting solid single jersey or use it as a feature accent for pockets, side panels, yokes etc.
This fabric has so many sensory attributes it will make superb toys and comforters for children, they also make great pattern weights!

I made a floaty dress in this, I would advise using a jersey needle as well as a stretch stitch on your sewing machine. The colours are vibrant and lovely! - Stephen
I found this sewed up really smoothly, it has a light drapey finish and looks gorgeous when worn. Really happy with it.
