woven fabrics


so one kind of fabrics are woven fabrics.

Woven Fabrics are made of 2 or more sets of threads that cross each other. If some (2-5%) of this threads are elastic the fabric can stretch a little, often used in tight pants. But normally woven fabrics aren’t elastic, so if you want to make a garment that is not loose you will need buttons, a zipper or something like that, so you will be able to put it on and take it off. The threads of those fabrics can be made of almost all materials. Often they use a big amount of cotton, but also polyester, viskose or something like it. Which ones you prefer is entirely up to you. But for all of them you need to think about how you do the overedging with a trimming seam to make the seam frayproof. Because as you can see on the pic the edges get frayed.

Woven fabrics can be used for all kinds of garments which don’t need to be elastic, so no tight T-Shirts, but pants, shirts, blouses, skirts and dresses, but all with some kind of closing.

I gonna explain the different kinds of woven fabric a little more over the next time.

If you have any questions, feel free to ask! Or make suggestions which special kind of fabric I definitely need to write more about.

All the best
