Stitch The Look: Pretty Crepe

If there’s one thing that crepe fabric is famous for, it’s the movement and flowing drape that the material offers. Sometimes rough to the touch, other versions you’ll find are silky and smooth since the fabric is woven in everything from silk and wool to polyester and viscose, which ultimately determines the texture it provides.

Because crepe tends to move around, take even greater care when cutting out the pieces and be extra zealous with lots of fine sewing pins.
