I'm making wizard robes for a friend's Gandalf (the grey) costume, what kind of fabric should I use? I want it to be breathable and flowy like robes and not look too modern/machine-made. Can anyone suggest fabric types and/or sources?
Hey, quick question. I got some microsuede headphone ear pads that have been great in every other way, except they bleed dye. Never noticed any on the sides of my head after wearing them, but they've stained one wooden desktop already; now keeping the headphones on a piece of paper.
The pads got memory foam inside as opposed to regular foam, so I've been hesitant about putting them through the laundry machine, instead I've tried hand washing them with laundry detergent for sensitive fabrics. I've given them three hand washes fo far, but they still keep bleeding dye.
I'm looking for a advice for a translucent fabric. Peter Do recently posted on Instagram a translucent jacket which fabric looks awesome. All translucent fabrics I can find are flimsy and not fabric enough to use them as a base. Here you can find the reference: https://i.imgur.com/ftFxhHT.jpg
If anybody has a tip that leads me in the direction of finding a similar fabric, would be awesome.
I buy Fruit of the Loom V neck shirts in the Athletic Heather color. However they don't make them in my size anymore (2XL). XL is the biggest they make them now. How difficult would it be to convert the shirt from XL to 2XL?
So my mom used to sew crafts and sell them at craft shows. She primarily made baby clothes and accessories and the like. We have since moved from an area where that would sell well. She still has all of that fabric and whatnot. My brother and I are looking to move them again. Any ideas on who I can sell all the unused fabric too? Is there a company or something that would buy all of it for one lump sum? It used to be her livelihood so I don’t wanna just throw it out.
I need a t-shirt which has soft and moisture wicking properties. The softness of the fabric is more important than the moisture-wicking factor which means I can sacrifice from moisture-wicking properties for better softness but I need both. What type of fabric or fabric mixtures for that?
