Though, I did learn that Titan behaves differently than most nylon-lycras I've used. While Titan is a 4-way knit, The hand and drape of Titan fabric reminds me of interlock, or even a 2-way. It likes to keep it's original shape. I could tell this by
- The way the fabric wrinkled up from my hips
- It's tendancy to stand away from my body
- It's hand is like a cross between a mid-light weight nylon-lycra (think average swimsuit material) and a thick stretchy board short material. It does occasionally remind me of sounds that I hear from ripstop nylon. Though, the nylon behaviors are VERY, VERY faint.
I tried this on with my jeans (and matching socks) to see how the fabric would react against clothing that might push back (like Jeans are wont to do with manipulative knits). Even with the extra wrinkles from the smaller sizing at the hips, I though it stayed in place quite well. That's rather impressive because usually knits hang up and drape across my bum.
- Tailored and semi-fitted athletic jackets
- Skirts with a stand-out ruffle
- Stand-up cuffs or collars
- A fun alternative to scuba knits where you want just a little more drape than a scuba can offer.
- 5 layers at the under bust
- 4 layers at yolk to bodice
- 6 layers at the armscye
I am just in LOVE with this top.
What are your thoughts about large scale prints?? How would you have used this differently? Have you ever worked with Titan fabric before?
