Hi everyone, I am starting to get back into sewing and I am in a bit of a haze with all the different fabrics out there!! I am making a simple top, I want something I can throw on with jeans or dress up a bit. What fabric would you recommend?

I was looking at cottons and jerseys also some knit…too many choices!

    A jersey knit tunic would be good for wear with jeans or for dressing up. I have noticed very few colour choices in one store chain for jerseys-nevermind any print versions. Hope you have some colours to choose from! If you decide to make a shirt, you might like a poly-cotton blend for ease of care and colourfastness until you figure out what other fabrics you want to work with.
