1  Help me identify this fabric!!! in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by mitzibel on: January 22, 2008 09:08:31 AM
I got this fabric in two colors at our Wal-Mart about two years ago.  Two fabulous skirts later, and I've got folks wanting to place orders for them.  Trouble is, I've *no* idea how to find more of the fabric--especially since I don't know what it's called!!

On the "candle test", it melts and wants to flame pretty rapidly, so it's obviously synthetic.  Other than that. . . .  I'm clueless.  Anyone have an idea?





As you can (hopefully) see, it's very irregular in its crinkly-ness, and quite slippery and shiny.

Any help would be so very much appreciated.

Here's the skirt just hanging straight; I'll put a tutorial up once I get the pictures taken of the pattern I made.  Thanks again, all!

So this is my first sewing project.  I made the pattern from a favorite skirt I'd been given years ago.  This took nearly 7 years of fabric to match the grain; the bottom has 12 gored panels in 4 different sizes.
