Best Fabric in Portland OR for Skirts!

  • Silk – This very fancy, structured material is great for a skirt that works well for evening or an elegant event. Silk is light with lots of flow. Because of this, it can be difficult to sew with.

  • Silk mix – A fabric that is much more stiff than pure silk, it still gives the look of silk. This is a very popular choice among those who like the idea of silk but don't want to deal with sewing it.

  • Wool – A great fabric for winter, wool is thick, stiff and warm. However, it's also difficult to clean and maintain.

  • Wool mix – Easier to maintain and clean, this fabric comes in many options which makes it great for skirts that gather. Wool can be bulky so using a mix will cut down on this.

We hope this information helps you choose the best fabric for a skirt, whatever time of year it is you're looking to sew one.
