Ladybird Spot Chiffon Fabric

  • £1.00

How many spots can you count on the ladybird? This ladybird spot chiffon fabric has a really cute combination of ladybirds and spots which are raspberry in colour. They are each placed on a peachy keen background and both colours work very well together. This chiffon is very light in weight and also has a sheer quality to it, meaning you can layer other coloured fabrics beneath it. The pattern itself looks random, however you will find a repeat in both vertical and horizontal directions. The ladybirds vary in size from 1 cm to 1.5 cm's all face different directions, as if they are crawling along the fabric, adding to the fabrics random look print. The spots also range in different sizes, from 1 cm to 2 cm's, working harmoniously with the ladybirds. This chiffon drapes well and is fluid. Gathers would form nicely from this fabric giving you many options as to how you use it.
