This Newspaper Print Spandex is a lightweight, knit fabric ideal for costuming, sportswear, and bodywear. The stretch allows for body-conscious garments and ease of movement. The Newspaper Print Spandex travels easily, and its print is on trend, and beautiful. It stretches only on the crosswise grain but has a beautiful soft drape.

94% Polyester / 6% Spandex

4-Way Stretch Poly Spandex
60 Inches Wide
Imported Fabric

Soft drape with smooth handfeel.

Slight degree of shine on face side

Tips and Tricks:

  • Crosswise stretch should go horizontally across the body
  • For cutting, lay out fabric on dressmaker’s cutting board, hold down pattern pieces w/fabric weights and trace around pattern pieces with a sharp rotary cutter. This allows for more precise cutting with knit fabrics.
  • If cutting with shears, pin pattern pieces with thin, sharp pins (try our extra fine pins)
  • If interfacing is needed, use lightweight fusible knit interfacing
  • Use a ballpoint (stretch) needle when machine sewing
  • Use a knit stitch to maintain stretch – chainstitch is ideal, but you can also use overlock (serger) to sew seams without additional stitch
  • If you have to use a regular straight lockstitch, lower your stitch size (8-10 stitched per inch  is a good estimate, but it’s best to experiment on a test swatch before sewing), and gently stretch the fabric while sewing to maintain stretch. Steam seams on lower (polyester/nylon) setting to eliminate unwanted puckering. You may want to use a pressing cloth if you have a particularly hot iron.
  • Use self-binding, overlock (serger) or a roll-back hem with coverstich for hems and edge

Wash cold on gentle cycle or hand wash in cold water, hang dry.
