Difference between Textile and Fabric definitions

Did you ever wonder what the difference between the words textile and fabric are?

Today the words are used as synonymous for textile.  However, there are subtle differences between the two in specialized usage.

We will attempt to explain.

Both the textile and fabric words are used for woven fabric.
The difference is that FABRIC has traditionally meant a woven fabric and is a general term used for clothing.  Its fibers are usually weaved, knitted, crocheted, etc.
TEXTILE is a much broader term usually applied to the entire clothing industry (ie. textile industry).  Its fibers are intertwined and can be braided, felted, twisted, etc.  Can have various connotations such as fabric of society or fabricated products.

Hope this helps!

Follow my progress – cocktail dress


Fifth “Follow my Progress” post is up.  We’re moving mighty quickly! :)

Follow my progress on below link, with newest post on top.

In this latest post, I have completed the upper part of the pattern – the bust, back and the seam between those pieces and the waistband.

I will be tweaking one thing tomorrow to make the bust area more appealing and finishing the waistband.
And finally, tomorrow also, I will show you how to copy, doublecheck that everything fits and add seam allowances, etc. to prepare the pattern for cutting.

I am posting daily, since Christmas is fast approaching and the dress needs to be worn on that day :) , so keep a lookout for my progress! :)

If you have any questions about anything during my process of making this dress, please feel free to send me a message or comment below and I will get back to you ASAP with an answer :)
