So I'm making Butterick 5893 and it names some fabric that I have never heard of. (i haven't even gotten my sewing machine yet that happens friday) But anyway what I am wondering is can I replace those obscure (to me) fabris with jersey knit fabric? I love to jersey fabric pants.

the pattern calls for a lightweight woven fabric not a knit. You will need a different pattern if want to use a knit jersey fabric. Hope that helps.

Well that stinks just a little bit I haven't actually found any patterns that would be suitable for jersey fabric :(

I looked at the pattern and it's so loose you could do it with jersey, just be aware some of the directions may be wrong since they're written for woven.

M6514 view D is almost exactly the same pants made for knits.

Or, you could do K3384 which is made for knits.
