Hey y’all, September around here is going to be all about the basics. And while I know many of you regular readers have a good grasp on those basics already, I hope you still learn a thing or two from these posts. Today we’re going to cover types of woven fabric – I realized I have a post all about knits, but that I never wrote to woven fabrics companion, so here it is.
It wouldn’t be possible for me to cover everything about every fabric, so I’m going to cover commonly found garment fabrics and show you some examples of clothes I’ve sewn in those fabrics. For more about fabric types, including questions on cutting, needles, and care, I recommend Fabrics A-Z (affiliate link).
To see how these fabrics move and look sewn into garments, watch the video below. If it won’t load for some reason or you prefer YouTube, you can also watch it here.
To summarize the properties of the fabrics I covered, I also created this fabric guide. Click on it to download a PDF for reference.sign up for my newsletter!
