Cloth Cuts French terry is one of the softest fabrics I’ve sewn with. This French Terry is slightly heavier than Cotton Lycra at 300gsm (whereas CL is 260gsm). It has a 4-way stretch and the recovery is great! Because of the slightly heavier GSM, it is a great alternative for winter sewing, ie. jumpers and joggers/track pants which may require that extra thickness to protect you from those colder days. As for the printing, well the smooth side of the fabric is where you will find the gorgeous designs. And of course, the reverse side of the fabric has the terry loops.
I have been sewing for my business for almost 5 years now and I can always count on the quality and consistency of the colours with Cloth Cuts.
I mainly sew children’s clothes, and as you can imagine, those little people can get themselves into some messy and sticky situations, but even with the countless amounts of washes and stain remover sessions, the colour and fabric holds up tremendously.
I’ve made a number of items with French Terry, including jumpers to shorts and shirts with regular hems and lettuce hems. And I find that it takes on any pattern and its finish is amazing.
French Terry is a must-have for all winter clothing makes such as jumpers or tracksuits. Not to be confused with Terry Towelling, it’s a mid-weight fabric similar to jersey. It has a loop piling on the reverse side and is soft and smooth on the printed side. French terry also has fantastic moisture absorbing capabilities. Soft, snug and warm, it’s a perfect choice.
