Gabardine is a twill weave that has a beautiful drape and is highly wrinkle resistant. It is widely used for tailored suits, trench coats, tailored jackets, tailored trousers, straight skirts or loose shirts. Styles with drape do very well in gabardine. Since gabardine does not ease well, raglan or dolman sleeves look more professional unless you are a very experienced sewer. Minerva Crafts stocks Gabardine in Black and White and occasionally in other colours throughout the year too!
