Crepe de chine and tissue faille…

rekha | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

I got some 80s patterns for high waist trousers which require you to sew the garment on the fabrics mentioned.

What would be the modern equivalent to these?

    I was reading through the older stuff on the site and came across your question. Crepe de Chine and Faille are full bodied fluid fabrics. Other substitutions would be double georgette, rayons, laundered silks, crepe backed satin, dress satins(soft satins). Hope this helps. Cathy

      You know Cathy, more often than not, I have noticed that when I generate a new thread I almost never get a response.

      So, I would like to thank you for the information.

      I shall now be able to make the  pants I have always wanted to wear

        Great Pattern! This looks like a great classic. I still have a lot of my patterns from the 80's that I am going to start remaking now they are coming around again. Only the girls will be wearing them as the sizes are rather too small for me now. I might make a few fav's up in my size tho. Cathy
