Using Bi-Stretch in Dressmaking

When it comes to selecting the right Fabrics for what you require, here at Calico Laine we now stock a  wide range of Dressmaking Fabrics to suit all of your  needs. The Bi-Stretch fabric that we stock is a medium weight Dressmaking fabric with a 4-way give. This material can be described as having ‘give’ more than being a very stretchy material, and is a popular choice of cloth due to its comfort and stylish look when created into garments.

There are many garments that can be made out of Bi-stretch Dressmaking Fabric, and here are just a few of them:

  • Trousers and shorts – This is a popular Dressmaking Fabric for both mens and womens clothing due to its lighter feel, yet it is a substantial material. It falls well when made into garments, and is often a choice for trousers in formal clothing. It is also ideal for informal clothing like shorts due to its comfortable feel.
  • Jackets – If you are looking to create a lighter jacket that is comfortable and fashionable, then Bi-stretch could be the ideal Dressmaking Fabric to provide you with the perfect look.
  • Suits – Suits are often made out of Bi-stretch Dressmaking Fabric as it falls well and looks suitable for both daywear and eveningwear.

The Bi-stretch Dressmaking Fabric that we have available is available in a vast selection of different colours and comes in a width of 150cm.
