Jeans pockets

MarshaK | Posted in Fabric and Trim on

I’m wondering if anyone can tell me what the fabric is that manufacturers use for the lower part of front pockets in jeans. I use muslin, but the RTW looks and feels heavier. What is the best quality of muslin available? Some types I’ve used seem to wear out quicker than I like it to. MarshaK.

    It feels more like poplin or shirting fabric to me, both of which are stronger and less wrinkle prone than muslin. On jeans, it's usually 100 percent cotton, but on slacks, it's often a lining fabric in polyester that you have to be careful about ironing. The benefit of sewing your own is that you can use whatever works best for you!
