washable suits

eauinaz | Posted in General Discussion on

I need some suggestions for fabric and findings for making a business appropriate suit but one that doesn’t need to be dry cleaned.

    very difficult if you want to make something that has structure and interfacingand all the tayloring type stuff in it.I have recently used a stretch woven in a  suit of jacket and trousers . The jacket is only partly lined and the pants are totally washable .The jacket I will dry clean I think or at least spot clean. The fabric is totally synthetic and I probably could wah it but ........ Do I risk it? Anyway with the jacket being worn over a top at all times it probably will only need cleaning once in a season. Good luck.
