Spandex Fabric

Question:



I am making a ballet tutu for my 8 year old grand daughter and I cannot remember if you can use Lycra as it is or if it has a nap or certain way of laying a pattern on it.



Answer:

Janet,

I think you are asking me if Lycra (aka Spandex) has a nap. Generally Lycra fabric does not have a nap or certain way to lay out your pattern.

I am giving you a link to a page on my website that explains the fundamentals of Lycra/Spandex fabrics.

Spandex, Lycra Fabric information.

I hope I understand your question and this is of help to you.

Thank you for contacting me and happy sewing.
