I finished a nice pair of pants at the end of last year. The only problem is that the fabric seems to hold on to a lot of lint or small fibers. As I remember the fabric was a stretch cotton (woven cotton lycra) with the name gabardine on the bolt. That was one of the fabric suggestions on the pattern so I thought it would work great. The pants are a dark navy and the lint is not so noticeable until one gets out into the sunshine or in a light brighter than what is next to my closet. Urg!
Does anyone have any suggestions? Maybe a treatment. I have taken a lint remover to them, but I can’t be doing that to them every time I wear them. I already know that I am avoiding wearing them.
Fabric choice is what keeps me from making more clothes. I want to know that the time I put into a garment will be worth it. Actually that is probably why I like buying used clothes, so one has more of a sense how the fabric wears. How do you choose fabric?
