​Not just anyone’s rayon spandex!

Not just anyone’s rayon spandex!

I have A LOT of fabric, more than any person who has only been sewing for a year and a half ever should. I decided that just ordering a little bit of everything was the best way to learn about different fabrics. I had tried rayon spandex before from other distributors and it just didn’t do anything for me, it was thin, got sucked into my sewing machine, I couldn’t start sewing on the end, it showed all the lumps and it was sheer.

I decided when Melissa stocked rayon spandex that I should just try it. I mean everything else she stocks is a step above so I hoped I would like this rayon spandex more than any other I had tried. Well…. It came in the mail and I didn’t believe it. It is so much heavier than any other I had ever tried, the perfect weight for dresses, tops, or rompers. It has amazing drape, covers my flaws and I don’t have to worry about seeing my underwear through it! Amazing! A lot of other rayon spandex is about 6 oz and the Phee rayon spandex is 13oz just to give you a comparison.

So many of the lighter weight fabrics I have a heck of a time sewing on my sewing machine and with my serger out of commission options are limited. I was so happy that I could just sew this rayon spandex like any thicker fabric and I wasn’t constantly fishing it out from the bobbin.

My rayon spandex Jessie dresses (5oo4) are probably my most worn me made items and I have a romper and dresses in the works for my littles. The options really are endless. It’d be the perfect fabric for some staple v necks or camis too or even a swim coverup.

Here are some patterns that I think would be spectacular for the rayon spandex.

The Jessie from 5oo4. There are also SAL videos on the blog.

The green tee from Greenstyle Creations which is FREE and happens to be my favorite basic tee.

The Isabel from m4m which is a wrap dress or there’s a hack to make it a duster too on their blog.

This is a gathered maxi skirt that would be perfect in the rs for summer giving full coverage but also being breathable.

This is a t shirt dress that I make often for my littles too that I actually have on my cutting table now to make out of the pink rayon spandex.
