I've been thinking of dappling back into making some clothing but as I read some of the threads here there are some apparel fabrics I'm not familiar with since I've haven't been making clothing for 10 or more years. I found this excellent fabric dictionary on line.

I have Claire Scaffer's book, which is excellent, but I think even the most recent printing was a few years ago.

Thanks, quiltingwolf--I really like this kind of thing! (Being both a word nerd and a wannabe textile nerd.) This source seems good at explaining when a name for something comes from its fiber, its weave (or other method of production), or its design/embellishment....there are other categories, I'm sure (use?).

O'course many of our fellow PR folk are good at that, too (I've learned so much here).

Thanks for the link!

Now if only I could reach through the screen to feel the fabric, I'd be set! :-)
