Riviera Textured Stretch Bengaline is a stretch woven fabric that is great for skirts, pants or jackets. The stretch runs parallel to the selvedge, which means that the stretch runs “the other way”. You need about 1.50m for a size 14.
It is a stretch woven fabric which means that the edges may fray, so they need to be sewn with a zigzag on your machine. Alternatively, use an overlocker to give a neater finish.
Not a knitted fabric, but a stretch woven, with the stretch provided by the spandex fibre. [Spandex is the preferred name of spandex fibre in the US, and it is known in Europe as elastane, and in the UK and Australia as Lycra®. Spandex is actually an anagram of expands.]
May need ironing.
