I bought some cotton-poly blend fabric that has a bit of stretch because I loved the colour and the matte monochromatic stripes on it. I want to make pants. What I didn't realize until I got home was that the stripes are on the cross-grain, going from selvage to selvage. What do I do? Can I cut pants on the cross-grain. What are the pros and cons of this? Any advice is appreciated.
May I ask you in what direction your stretch is.
If the stretch Goes from selfedge to selfedge and you want to turn 90 degr. then you have something to bother about. I know that there exist pant blockpatterns for lengte stretch and that they differ in shape from pants with stretch from selfedge to selfedge.
