Abstract: Attempts have been made to produce other derivatives of cotton muslin fabric by altering its weave structure from plain to twill and sateen with higher pick insertions to make it dimensionally stable for its potential use in readymade garments, besides saris and ladies dress materials. Low-stress mechanical properties and total hand values of these fabrics are evaluated to understand their suitability for use in readymade garments. It is observed that sateen shows higher drape, higher compression resilience, lowest shear rigidity, moderate bending rigidity, and lowest surface smoothness & frictional values, finally showing best total hand values and higher gloss than the other two woven structures.
