6. Why is it important to learn about fabrics?

To understand how fabric choices influence the design and final aesthetic of the garment. Fabrics affect the drape (how the garment falls) and more importantly, its fit and quality. It’s the differentiating factor between a cheap-looking product or a boutique-bought garment. Wrong fabric choices may result in a poor fit, discomfort or the design not looking as intended.

7. How can you make a dress flattering on yourself?

Based on the occasion, the wearer is able to make it look fun with prints and flowy with more volume. Tweed fabric can make it look stylish and effortlessly elegant or using cotton lace can make it shapely and flattering. Fabrics and skirt silhouettes can be modified according to one's tastes.

Knowing is just the tip of the iceberg. Now that you know the importance of choosing the right fabrics, the next step now is to put it to practice!
