fabrics and fashion

After a week of manic work at the other cinema (more on that later) I’m enjoying some sunday downtime to teach myself more about fabrics. I was discussing with my friend how I wish our foundation year was about learning the BASICS of fashion and costume like thorough knowledge about fabrics, threads, machinery etc instead of spending 7 hours pr day sketchbooking. Sadly it wasn’t so I’ve been spending quite some time reading upon the subject (fabric for fashion and its sample book are my favourites)

While researching some fabrics I came across this website with more or less with the same content as the book and thought i would shate. Its introduces you to basic fabric knowledge with pictures, has little tests you can take and seems to be made by Beth Wuest at the Texas State university.
