The whole idea behind Testing Jersey is that I had no idea which jersey fabric I should buy: cotton, viscose or bamboo, which wears better, what is gonna be best to sew out of each and if I should spend money on it, will it payback????? Too many questions, right? So, I thought, there must be sewist lost like me, and maybe I could help someone else, this lead me to decide and buy few fabrics and make simple tees for my hubby, lol, yeah, why not to test on man? I won’t be able to make 3 same tees for myself and wear them often, so I can use some constant, comparing in the same scale.

Apart from using this jersey for the tees for Alejandro, I decide to make some underwear for both and test which fabric is best for this purposes as well)) I will be writing down all observations during the process of cutting, sewing, wearing and tell you all when I’ll get to the point of making conclusions!)

And you? Maybe you’ve made up your mind already about jersey fabric… Would love to hear your opinion)
