What kind of fabrics do you recommend?

Burda Style 6-2011
I was all set to cut out this pants from a drapey woven (rayon and polyester blend, which they called microfiber when I bought it) and of course there is not enough fabric =(  I don't usually make pants with elastic waist so I don't have any spring/summer fabrics that would work with this pattern in my stash.

What do you recommend?


  1. I think a silk jersey would be great, but a pricey fabric to purchase. If not, a finer ponte would work.

  2. I have a lot of success with rayon/polyester/lycra double knit. I've used ponte roma knit with success also. The cheaper ponte knit fabrics do not work well for me. Of course, I agree that a pant weight silk jersey would be lovely but pricey.

  3. Lisette, te he dado un premio. Pásate por mi blog.
    Un besito


I love hearing from you!
