Ribbing fabric is a tubular knit that is perfect for cuffs, collars and waistbands on your knit or woven fashion sewing projects. It has small ribs that create a structured elastic texture. True ribbing is hard to find, and Hart's Fabric is excited to be able to offer you the real deal! Make finishing your knits a piece of cake with this awesome rib knit fashion fabric.
Ribbing makes an excellent easy and comfortable substitute for elastic waistbands on skirts and pants. Ribbing is often an essential finishing touch on sweatshirts and jackets to help seal in the warmth. It's even great on pajamas, active and maternity wear. It's easy to sew on too! Cut it an inch (or a few) smaller than it needs to be, and twice as wide as you want your waistband/cuff to be. Fold it in half and sew it to your skirt/pants/jacket, stretching as you go. Easy as pie!
