A lightweight four-way stretch jersey with excellent breathability, this fabric is exclusive to Spoonflower. Ideal for everyday wear, sports, travel, and other activities where comfort matters, Modern Jersey features a flattering drape and a touch of sheen.
Spoonflower is an online printing company that allows customers to design custom fabrics and wallpapers. Sewists can create their own designs and purchase them directly through the site or choose from the portfolios of independent designers from around the world. The range of options is endless. Here are some project ideas, perfect for Modern Jersey, from Spoonflower’s creative community.
Elishka Jepson of Robyriker Designs made this top for MeMade May with her Floral Festival design on Modern Jersey.
‘In general, I prefer natural substrates to synthetic, but Spoonflower modern jersey has a few characteristics which I like. It has a nice drape which makes it a good fit for apparel. It prints with a brightness that doesn’t fade and has a slight sheen, giving it an almost “fancy” feel. I have made my mom a few tee shirts with modern jersey and it is her favorite because it does not wrinkle. Perfect for vacations and packing in a suitcase.
Modern Jersey seems to be a unique to Spoonflower substrate. If I had to pick another fabric that is the most similar, I would say Rayon Spandex. But it is slightly heavier and easier to sew, as it has more stability.’ -Brenda
‘This scarf which I can loop around twice to wear was made with ½ yard of Modern Jersey. You can use the Fill-A-Yard function on Spoonflower to split a yard of Modern Jersey into 2 half yard cuts with two different designs. Choose HORIZONTAL split for this project. Since you will have a white border on three edges and the contrasting design for the fourth this is really fast to cut and you use ALL the printed fabric in your project!‘ – Brenda
