I kind of came in to this sewing thing a little backwards. I tend to just find clothes, deconstruct them and then teach myself how to make them from what I see. As such, I have zero understanding of types of fabrics and what is good for what projects. I have mostly just been going to the fabric store and picking based on feel and look.
I have just learned to make pants. I am looking for materials for these pants. The pants need fabric that is heavier than the standard cotton stuff you get at a place like Jo-Ann's. I have used some corduroy with really thin wales, and that turned out really well.
These are the pants I have made with corduroy. http://touchflamedesigns.com/sites/default/files/product_images/my%20finished%20pants_0.jpghttp://touchflamedesigns.com/sites/default/files/product_images/my%20finished%20pants%202_0.jpg
I want fabric that is soft enough to flow around a little, but not super thick or thin.
Please help. What should I be looking for?
Thanks in advance.
