Basic cloth knowledge (1)

        The characteristics of the fabric - each fabric has its own characteristics, which is its own conditions and performance.

        The material properties can be divided into raw fiber materials, weave, texture, weight, feel, finishing wear and cleaning performance.

Simply describe the weave, texture, weight, and wearing performance of the fabric.

      1. Weave: Cloth includes woven and knitted fabrics. Most of our garments are made of woven fabrics. The most common woven fabrics are plain weave, twill weave, and so on. The structure is related to the fabric's texture, weight and feel.

      2, texture: Each material has its own organizational structure, due to different materials and weave, resulting in different touch / visual effects. Such as: smooth glossy cotton, soft and light gauze. An original cosplay dress pays great attention to texture, so be careful when picking cloths. It's best to discuss cutting methods and materials with the tailor.

      3, Weight: The weight of the fabric usually refers to G/M, (in grams per metre). This needless to say, if you want to have a little effect, you have to choose a lighter fabric, and vice versa. For example, outer wear, skirts, trousers, etc. use more heavy fabrics, while shirts use lighter fabrics. In addition, fabrics have a close relationship with the season. Basically, autumn and winter will use more heavy fabrics. Upper and lighter fabrics.

      4. Wearing and cleaning performance: The wearing performance is whether the clothes are durable or not. The cleaning performance refers to whether the clothes can be washed or need to be hand-washed or dry-cleaned. This point is very important for everyday clothes, but in terms of cosplay clothes, it is generally negligible. Sometimes, in order to achieve the original BT effect, it is necessary to use a very cumbersome cloth, and clothes are not often worn, which sacrifices the convenience of wearing and cleaning.
