Hi, I’m looking for a wrinkle resistant cotton twill for trousers. Does anyone know of anyplace that sells it? thanks!.

    I don't know of a place to buy it, but try looking for something with a bit of spandex in it. That's very popular now and the spandex helps prevent wrinkling.

    The online fabric stores fabrics.com and fashionfabricsclub.com has page after page of cotton twills and stretch cotton twills, but of the pages I looked at, none specified wrinkle resistant. You may want to check them out further.Also Mary Jo's Cloth Store in Gastonia, NC, has an online site, but no real ordering online. They are very helpful on the phone, though, and if you call the phone # on their website, they'll look for what you want, even ordering from the manufacturer.http://www.maryjos.com/Good luck. I hope you find a direct source.

      Thanks!.  I went to the Mary Jo's website., It looks like it might be helpfull!. :)   I've ordered alot of twill from fashion fabrics club.  None of it seemed to be very wrinkle resistant.   Thanks for informing me about Mary Jo's., I'll ask and see if they know of a source.

        The suggestion of a cotton twill with spandex is a good one; I've bought it at Joanns and have had very good success with it.  But even non-stretch cotton twills, which can be very wrinkly when new, are also fairly wrinkle resistant after they have been laundered a few times and tumbled dry on medium or low.

      Mary Jo's has on-line shopping now. I didn't actually buy anything but I ran through the process right up to the final step just now and there is definitely mail-order service provided.

        Oh, good. I hope I didn't throw anybody off with misinformation. It's such a terrific store.

          I was thrilled to visit it (Mary Jo's in Gastonia, NC) in person this past June. All I can say is that you have to see it to believe it. I had NO trouble at all spending my $100 budget there, but I also figure that I was able to get nearly 25% more for my money there than I would anywhere else.

            Yes, their prices are good and it's so huge, they have a lot to choose from. I stopped there en route from Maryland to Georgia, so just stopped for an hour or so - not nearly enough time for me, but DH was waiting patiently. I would've liked to spend the night nearby so I could've gone back a second time. I was overwhelmed, and needed to think!I've since called them to order fabric that I had seen in person, and they were so very helpful, just delightful to buy from.
