I mostly wear natural fibers (except in knits) but am planning several dresses for work.

I found a poly/cotton stretch woven and was considering M6433 for the fabric.

But will it hold the pleats in the skirt pannel?



I don't have a lot of experience with stretch wovens, in fact, I tend to stay away from them, so I have no idea how this fabric behaves.

Anyone care to share their opinion? TIA!

How much poly? How much Lycra? I think that's going to be the deciding factor. I'm guessing you have to order this so you can't try a test press and see how it handles?

The cotton should be fine... but you never know--I'm dealing with some poly now that won't RELEASE a crease!
