I'm currently in the market for some new fabrics for my next sewing project, and I'm torn between crepe and velvet. I'm looking for a fabric with great drape and texture, but I'm not too sure which one would be better suited for my needs.
For some background, I'm making a dress for a formal event that I'll be attending next month. I want something that will flow nicely and feel luxurious against my skin. However, I'm also trying to keep costs down, so I don't want to waste any money on a fabric that won't work.
So, which fabric do you think would be the better choice for me - crepe or velvet? How do they compare in terms of drape and texture? I'd love to hear about any personal experiences you've had with either fabric or any tips you have for working with them. Thanks in advance!
