Villaggio Viscose Crepe - Saffron

(9 reviews) Write a Review


A Fabric Godmother exclusive vintage fishing village print, printed onto the most wonderful quality viscose crepe dressmaking fabric.

Fabric Godmother has developed these fabrics in a exclusive collaboration with the Print Pattern Archive. Bringing vintage prints to life.

This viscose crepe has a wonderful weight and an amazing drape to it. 

Use it to make a shirt, dress or wide legged trousers. 

This crepe dress fabric is 100% viscose and is 132cm wide.

Viscose is a fibre that is derived from wood pulp, making it a natural fabric that is more breathable than cotton. It is also known as Rayon.

Please allow 5% shrinkage for this fabric as viscose has a tendency to shrink in the first wash.

Machine washable at 30 degrees, cool iron, gentle tumble dry or hang out to dry straight after washing, please note when you wash viscose it can become stiff when wet but the softness and drape will return as it dries.

We now sell all our dressmaking fabric in HALF METRE increments. The price is per HALF METRE. Enter 2 in the quantity box to buy 1 metre etc. All orders will be cut in a continuous piece.

We try our best to give an accurate representation of our fabrics, however due to varying monitor settings the colours may differ slightly to the original fabric. If you want to be sure about the colour, weight or size of a design please order a sample.

    The pattern is much bigger and bolder than I expected: a surprise at first but I completely love it. I've changed my plans to make the most of it, so it will now be a mid length pleated skirt. The weight and handle of the fabric are superb and really enhance the vintage feel of the fabric.

    Stunning design ....!!!

    Gosh this fabric design is just beautiful. It’s quite a large scale, which you don’t get so clearly from the photos, but the pastel colours are lovely. It’s got that slightly rougher crepe texture and a little more weight to it, whilst still moving nicely. I’m going to make a full maxi skirt for glamorous holiday dinners by the seaside.

    This fabric is divine! I love everything about it, down to the slightly nubbly texture. Other than the amazing print design, it seems opaque enough that I won't need to make a lining when I sew this into a fab dress. The quality is superb.

    I love this fabric. It is excellent quality and drapes beautifully. It is a larger print than I expected, so will be giving careful consideration before I cut into it. The colours are so vibrant and make the print really stand out. Reminds me of holidays by the sea as a child. Wonderful.

    Villaggio viscose crepe - saffron

    I can’t tell you how pleased I am with the way this gorgeous fabric made up. Although a lifelong sewer, lockdown has pushed me to be more ambitious and I ordered this to make a midi length shirt dress. The fabric has a great weight and adds real swing to the panelled skirt. It has been so admired - makes up into a fabulous unique garment . Would make great palazzo pants and matching top - other colour ways please.?

    Oh wow!

    You can certainly tell that you are working with a good quality fabric. Absolutely gorgeous material. Heavy enough to hang and drape beautifully. I made a simple Obi style dress with this fabric but it could easily make a pair of wide legged summer trousers, a shell top, you name it.

    What a wonderful fabric! Lovely draping quality, and made up beautifully into a big baggy shirt. Looks great with black trousers. Love the 50s style pattern - I'm going for the Hula pattern next. More 50s throwbacks please!
