Fun with Fabric / Re: Looking for lightweight 100% cotton jersey
« Last post by Vezelay on Yesterday at 23:34:41 »
I'm with you on the 100% cotton for sleepwear @sewingj . Nothing like it for comfort. There's some on eBay looks ok if you search. The lightweight can be thin and stretch but you might consider interlock.

If you're stuck Ive bought 100% cotton jersey PJ's online from M&S.

I avoided knits for most of my sewing life, but now I have my overlocker, I couldn't do without them.  One or 2 have defeated me [those uber slinky, crinkly, lovely textured ones are impossssssssssible to hem] but most are fab.
For super comfort and recoverablility [and ease of sewing] I highly recommend Frumble Fabrics' 'premium jersey'

Tia Knight seem to have a lot of lightweight 100% cotton jersey, and it's cheap!

Doesn't half stretch though!

Knits are the best and the worst, depending on how they play!

I'm really pleased I don't have to contend with beading or chiffon  Marnie, - that'd drive me mad.

 Progress thus far after lengthy consideration and gin - I recuperated  peach colour frills from the shortening of other dresses. ( Set of dresses are peach and green - with both colours on each dress )  I have a peach coloured remnant enough to make the bodice .   I need 4 frills to make the dress  similar to the others and I need 2 peach and 2 green. I've managed to piece together the donuts in green using the bits of shortened underskirts taken from the dresses I shortened - like a bloody jigsaw puzzle. All I have to think about now is where do I find something to make the skirt base. Found a recuperated zippier in my emergency box. Getting there.

I took another photo  the other colour was maroon, I liked the blue better, I never used to wear blue until recently.  Pattern match? That was a happy accident ;)
