Learn How To Identify Vintage Fabrics Guide

By + | May 24, 2012

The vintage clothing and fashion industry has it’s challenges, and one of the constant challenges that I face each and every day, is identifying fabrics.  For some people this may come easy, but I think for the majority of the vintage clothing sellers, this is a common challenge (unless you have the talent of sewing).  A few years ago I found a fantastic vintage book that has helped me with this challenge in learning how to identify fabrics.  “Better Homes & Gardens Sewing Book, Sewing How-to for home and family”. This book not only offers basic sewing techniques, equipment, tips, etc., but also valuable information on handling special fabrics, finishing details, and a fabulous fabric dictionary.  The following pages will identify eighty three different fabrics and show an example of each fabric.  Please note all of this information is from the Better Homes & Garden Sewing Book and not the property of Sydney’s Vintage Clothing.  Please let me know if you find this how to guide valuable.
