Hey everyone!

I've been scratching my brain for a few days trying to figure out what kind of fabric this is. It seems to be some kind of polyester, possibly suiting fabric. But I am really at my wits end trying to narrow it down. I was hoping anyone had some suggestions or at least can send me in the right direction.  Kiss

It's not possible for me to tell from photos alone, it could be crepe, rayon, or something like that. Do you have this fabric or are these just images you've found online? If you have the fabric in hand you can distinguish fiber content by pulling out a strand of thread and burning it. If it smells like burning paper, it's cotton. Burning hair, it's natural like wool or silk. Burning plastic is exactly that, a synthetic or a high content synthetic blend.
If you don't have the fabric, I recommend going to a shop and finding something that has the characteristics you want (weight, drape, etc) and using that info to search for the colour, price, and availability you're after.
