More often than not, the start of your sewing project can be from two things: choosing different patterns or choosing the best fabric suited for your project.

You should know though, that there are different kinds of fabrics – these types below are commonly used when sewing garments:

– Flannel
– Linen
– Wool
– Silk
– Satin
– Knit
– Double Gauze
– Denim
– Chambray
– Rayon Challis
– Cotton Lawn
– Cotton Voile

And if you want it to test your creativity, you can try these types of fabrics if you’re planning to sew:

Dress – wool, cotton lawn, knit, silk, satin
Shirts and blouses – cotton voile, flannel, linen, silk, chambray
Skirts – denim, linen, knit, rayon challis
Pants – linen, denim, wool, flannel

When shopping for fabrics, however, here are the things that you should do:

1. Think about what you want to create first. To get fresh and new ideas, you can get inspirations from Pinterest, Instagram, Tumblr, etc.

2. Research about how you are going to create it – from here, you will know which type of fabric is suited for the project that you will make. Go window shopping and see which fabric you like best.

3. Before buying, check out the drapes, the color, the width, and the stretch of the fabric so you will be sure that you are buying the right product.

4. Visualize your project using the fabrics that you chose – if it feels perfect for you, you can proceed with buying the fabric and start working on your project immediately.
