What is Gabardine

How do I recognize a gabardine?

Thanks to its weaving first!

When you have the fabric in front of you, observes its weaving well.

That of gabardine is quite characteristic: there are very marked diagonal stripes. It's about a armor chick.

You can find the same type of armor on denims for example.

What is interesting with the properties of gabardine is that it is a tight and therefore solid weaving, but also ... waterproof!

The weaving being tight, little chance that the rain will penetrate the fabric.

It is therefore The material to be favored for a trench coat, and I will give you a little lower some ideas of sewing trench patterns with gabardine.

It is also a fabric that has the outfit.

You can find more details in this dedicated article: What is Gabardine?

A beautiful material whose composition can vary.


There are 100% gabardines Baumwolle, wool gabardines, mixed gabardines and gabardines that contain elastane.

For a trench, personally, I prefer to opt for gabardines of Baumwolle Or wool that do not contain elastane.

On the other hand, the gabardines which contain them will be particularly pleasant to wear once transformed into pants or a skirt for example!

To speak more general, Gabardine is a perfect fabric for sewing parts that have hold and require a certain solidity !
