Fabric Series Roundup

6

Our fabric series is at an end, but Rachel will continue to post quick looks at different kinds of fabrics for the next few weeks! We hope that these fabric posts have helped educate and inspire you. For easy reference, here’s a roundup of the posts:

Learn about lustrous and luxurious silk.

Cotton is a perennial favorite with sewers, find out more with this helpful post.

Not just for coats, wool is a fiber that comes in several beautiful weaves.

Linen & rayon are breathable fabrics with unique characteristics.

Brush up on your sewing vocabulary with our post on fabric terms. We also recommend buying a fabric reference books such as Sandra Betzina’s More Fabric Savvy or Claire Schaeffer’s Fabric Sewing Guide. Both are wonderful easy to use references for sewing with various fabrics.

I hate to see the fabric series end – I’ve really loved it. My daughter is a fashion design student at Parsons and I text your link with every update.
