Tessellation - Printed Modal Poplin Designer Shirting is a first-rate designer printed poplin shirting fabric. This fabric is not your usual poplin. It was created from a clever blend of Modal and polyester fibres to produce a fabric which will work as hard as you - making it the perfect choice for super smart garments to take you from the office to the restaurant. Modal is breathable and discourages odour production, it is also super strong and does not shrink or distort when washed.
Tessellation is a super smart classic navy fabric printed with a mesmerising geometric design of tessellated diamond shapes where white borders are printed with accents of deep burgundy. The overall design has the appeal of a classic polka dot or similar. Navy, white and red is also a timeless combination.
Tessellation has all the benefits and qualities of a classic poplin - excellent stability, soft drape quality and all the benefits of modal and a touch of polyester.
"Modal is often called "the underwear fabric" and some just look to it as an environmentally-friendly textile option. Either way, modal is revolutionizing the fashion industry with its lightweight and breathable nature that takes beech tree pulp and turns it into an eco-conscious, durable option for clothing and housewares."
"Modal’s distinguishing characteristics are its high-wet strength and extra softness. It is sometimes referred to as “as soft as a feather” and “the softest fibre in the world.” In addition to its use in general apparel, its softness makes it especially ideal for wearing against the body. Due to its high-wet strength, Modal can be machine washed and tumble-dried. Modal fibres are dimensionally stable and do not shrink or get pulled out of shape when wet like many viscose rayons."
Tessellation is perfect for smart/casual garments and is suitable for a plethora of crafting uses too. Why not make up your favourite shirt pattern, shell tops, simple vest tops, shirtdresses, tunic tops and dresses, tea dress styles with gathered skirts and dropped waists, lightweight trousers, jumpsuits, playsuits, culottes and shorts?
Denim look and Chambray fabrics are timeless classics and will never date, perfect for creating pieces you can dress up or down depending on your mood or the occasion. Great styles to try include the Merchant & Mills "All State" men's shirt or ladies' dress shirt "The Fielder" as well as casual trousers with drawstring waists that will look excellent, not to mention children's lightweight dungarees! Other great patterns to try are Sew Different's Layer Up Collection and classic patterns like the Tulip Dress.
The Megan Nielsen Patterns Protea Capsule Wardrobe would make perfect examples of pretty full-gathered styles for easy, stunning outfits and so versatile!
Tessellation is also an excellent weight for patchworking, appliqué, quilting and bag-making.
