Care Instructions


Always pretreat fabric before sewing to remove chemical sizing from the manufacturing process. Pre-washing also gives you a better sense of the true drape and handfeel of a fabric.

Long-Term Care

This fabric is water resistant, and should only be washed in cold water and ironed on a low setting when pressing to preserve the water resistant finish. Do not put the fabric or your finished garment in the dryer, do not bleach.

Fabric Tips

Gabardine can be cut using a rotary cutter or a pair of sharp shears. Use a good quality poly thread when sewing.

Great fabric

I bought this fabric to make bags and I love the sheen and quality of it. I haven't yet sewn with it, but it seems like a fairly straightforward material to work with. I look forward to my projects with it and am aiming to purchase more!
