Straightening the Grain of the Fabric

Straightening the feed of your fabric is the main process of preparing your fabric to get that professional look you would like. It is necessary before reducing your fashion ‘fabric’ (also known as “stoffen” in Dutch language). Actually, both the fabric and design may both require attention before you do the final layout, and the success of one’s finished garment depends upon how you prepared your fabric.

In order to understand just why you should straighten the grain of the fabric, I think you should learn a bit about how exactly materials are made or constructed.

The filling posts are called crosswise or about the human body. The grain has more freedom, curtains differently and provides a fuller look to the dress. Usually, the crosswise grain is just used vertically to accomplish a particular style impact, as in border print placement. You can also visit for more details.

They go around the warp threads to the sides, whilst the filling threads go back and forth and form a self-advantage, or what’s called the selvage. This selvage edge is woven and clean and it doesn’t grow or ravel.

During the manufacturing process, the material might have been pulled off-grain, to ensure that grain lines are no longer perfect right angles. A dress created using an off-grain material will not hang correctly, thus re-alignment should be done before cutting.

In clothing design and development, the posts are known as grain. Grains indicate the direction of the thread. The warp threads are generally known as the lengthwise grain and generally run lengthwise on the body, from shoulder to hemline. The lengthwise grain has very little give or stretch.

Among the oldest methods of making materials is by interlacing two sets of threads together in a process referred to as weaving. One set of threads is stretched on the frame (loom) and is named the twist or lengthwise threads.

The other set is introduced so that they look at and beneath the warp threads to make a fabric. Since these threads travel back and forth in one side to the other, they’re called crosswise or answering threads.
