I'm currently working on a dress project, and I'm trying to decide between using crepe fabric or jersey knit fabric. Both fabrics have their unique characteristics, but I'm not sure which one would be better for a stretchy dress. I'm not that familiar with textiles, so any advice would be greatly appreciated!
I'm hoping to create a dress that is form-fitting and comfortable to wear. I need a fabric that can stretch and move with my body, but I don't want the dress to be too tight or clingy. I want it to drape nicely and have a flattering silhouette.
So far, I've heard that crepe fabric has more stretch than jersey knit fabric, but I'm not sure if that's true. I also know that both fabrics are lightweight and breathable, which is ideal for a dress. However, I'm not sure how easy it would be to sew either fabric or how they would hold up over time.
If anyone has experience working with either of these fabrics or has any advice on which one would be better suited to my project, I would love to hear your thoughts. Thanks in advance for your help!
