Techno jersey

In our latest OTTOBRE woman magazine, autumn-winter 5/2014, we’ve used techno jersey for both dresses and pants. We love this modern knit because it’s really easy to work with and the finished garments look so good.
Techno jersey is a heavyweight interlock knit, it’s quite firm and bi-stretch (stretch/recovery 20%). The fabric we used for our designs weighs 373gr/m² and is a blend of viscose, polyamide and elastane. The viscose content makes it breathable so it’s ideal for sportswear; we chose to combine coral and ivory techno jersey for this cool and sporty dress.

We used black techno jersey for the comfortable workout pants, it has just the right amount of stretch to allow free movement but will retain its shape – no baggy knees here! We added piping to the outer leg seams for a professional look.

Techno jersey can also be made into an elegant and flattering dress. This deceptively simple vivid blue dress has a slight A-line cut. The firm quality of the jersey makes the dress very flattering, close fitting but not clingy. 
You’ll find techno jersey in our Etsy shop here.
There are four lovely colors:gray, ivory, orange and turquoise.
