Today's topic is fabric, and I have 2 cool charts for you. :)
This first one is courtesy of the Colette Patterns website. It gives you a nice visual representation on how different types of fabric compare in terms of their weight and their drape. This is really useful when you are trying to decide what type of fabric to use for a particular pattern. :)
The next chart (actually a series of tables) show the fabric care symbols as published by the U.S. Federal Trade Commission (from this website).
I remember that, when I was young, fabric stores used to give you a tag or slip of paper that had similar symbols on it, telling you how to care for the fabric that you just purchased. Does anyone else remember that? Do any stores still do this?
