What is Muslin fabric and what can I use it for?

Muslin, one of the most versatile, durable fabrics out there. It features a loose weave using a plain weave technique making it breathable, lightweight and giving it a lovely texture. The other great thing about Muslin is that it gets softer with every wash. 

What can I use Muslin for?

Muslin is great for dresses, skirts, blankets, lining, bedding, tanks, summer dressers, shorts, loungewear and is really trending for baby clothing, blankets and bedding. 

How do I sew with Muslin?

  • Use a sharp, fine needle. If you use a large one it will leave visible holes. 
  • Serge the edges as this will fray. 
  • Wash in cold water and hang to dry before sewing
  • Lay it flay or lay it out to dry 

Muslin is such a wonderful fabric to work with and can really add some beautiful textures to your garment or even home furnishings.
