How To Choose The Right Fabric

Light Cotton
Starting out? Light cotton with a close weave is a great place to begin, as it’s usually easy to sew and often has a light fall that is great for simple projects like tops and dresses. Check the drape on your light cotton to make sure it’s not too stiff.

Heavy Cotton

Heavy cotton is perfect for items that you want to have more shape, but it’s still really easy to sew. When choosing your heavy cotton,  know that it is usually quite stiff and make sure this has been accounted for in the project you choose. Otherwise it will stick out a lot in places you don’t want it to.
