If so, it is off grain. Almost all fabric will be slightly off grain. You can correct this when you are preparing your fabric. But severely off-grain fabric is difficult, if not impossible, to straighten. It’s hard to give up on an otherwise perfect fabric, but be glad you discovered it before you wasted any more time and money. With practice, you will recognize this problem quickly before considering a fabric further. Preparing Your Fabric That lovely fabric you’ve just brought home from the store isn’t quite ready to cut yet.

Some other delicate fabrics need only a press cloth to protect them from the iron. Learning about Interfacing Interfacing is used between layers of fabric to add a small amount of stiffness. Nearly every collar and cuff pattern is going to call for interfacing. Interfacing comes in a few different weights. It is generally white, off-white, black, or gray. Occasionally you can find it in other colors. It doesn’t need to color coordinate with your fabric—it just needs to be invisible on the finished product, and so you don’t want it to show through the fabric.

Will it be too limp or too crisp for your purposes? To determine if you have chosen a one-way fabric, arrange the cloth so it is turned back on itself, allowing you to see the right side of the fabric as it runs in two directions. If it is one-way, it will not look the same in both directions. If there are prints that must be right side up, it will be more noticeable now. If there seems to be a difference in the color of the fabric, it has a one-way shine or one-way nap. Don’t eliminate the fabric because of this.
