We create fashion fabrics with your handmade garments in mind.
About Our Fashion Fabrics
All of Workroom Social’s fashion fabrics are printed with our original art and feature a chic, matte finish. Our 100% rayon reminds us of washed silk, making it the perfect fabric for sewists who are ready to graduate from cotton.
Super soft to the touch, our dress-weight rayon floats away from the body, which makes it perfect for styles that demand a flattering drape. It’s easier to cut, easier to sew, and easier to press than slippery silks, and it is more comfortable to wear than printed polyesters. Our rayons are a great choice for dresses, blouses, skirts and soft linings. Need a little more structure in your me-made garment? Consider underlining our rayon for even more options.
All of Workroom Social’s rayons are approximately 55” wide—not the standard 44” produced by many quilting companies (even so-called fashion fabric styles). You get 25% more fabric with every yard, giving you more options when choosing the sewing pattern styles you want to sew. (Because who doesn’t like to cut on the crossgrain every now and then?)
About Our Original Prints
All of Workroom Social’s original prints are specifically designed for fashion sewing.
Our fabrics feature fashion-forward prints that are sophisticated and fun. Not too naive or cutesy, our focus is to create designs that adult women will feel confident wearing whether to work, to a party, or just out grocery shopping.
Created by independent designers and artists, our original prints are perfect for sewing dresses, blouses, swingy skirts, jumpsuits, and drapey trousers.
If underlined, you can also use Workroom Social rayon for silhouettes that require a little more structure.

Wash and Care
Wash with like colors in cold water with mild detergent. We recommend washing your you-made clothes in a mesh bag in the washing machine. You can also wash on gentle cycle, wash by hand, or dry clean. Machine dry your garment while still in a mesh bag. Remove from dryer early, and hang garment for a final air dry. The wrinkles should fall out easily. You can also line dry or lay flat to dry. Press from the wrong side of the fabric allowing the fabric to cool and dry before moving it to help avoid any fabric stretch or distortion.
Rayon will shrink in the dryer.
