I am in a dilemma and cannot seem to decide whether I should use crepe fabric for my upcoming bathing suit project or not. I have been doing some research, and it appears that crepe is generally used for dresses, blouses, and skirts, but I am not sure about using it for a bathing suit.
I am a fashion student, and I want to experiment with different fabrics and textures for my swimwear project. I am particularly drawn to crepe because of its lightweight and flowy nature, which I think will work well for a beachy aesthetic.
However, I am concerned about crepe's absorbent nature and whether it will be able to hold up to extended exposure to water and sunlight. I also worry that it may not be as stretchy as other swimwear fabrics and could result in a lack of comfort and flexibility.
Has anyone tried using crepe fabric for a bathing suit before? If so, how did it turn out, and were there any drawbacks? I would love to receive some advice and feedback before making a final decision. Thank you in advance!
