Before each of my classes I like to do a little preparation work. Sometimes that includes a reference guide.
This Saturday I am teaching how to sew a knit maxi dress. I often get asked how they can quickly identify what type of knit fabric to buy or pick the best option for each different pattern.
Knits, natural or synthetic, can be identified by construction, weight and fabrication. Here is a quick reference guide with the most used knit fabrics.
I hope you find it useful to print it and take with you when you go shopping. You may even ask for samples and attached to it.
