Difference between Clothing and Quilting Fabrics?

I am just starting out and don't know how to identify fabrics suitable for dress making? What are key words to look out for? I'm searching hancock's site currently- are all of these quilting fabrics? Are there strict rules as to what certain materials should be used for? Premium, Kona, Wide, Laundered Cotton?? Please help me understand what to look for.

You can make clothing out of pretty much anything, providing it doesn't have a rubber backing or anything like that. Natural fibres will be more comfortable than synthetics, of course. Quilting fabric is just cotton with funky designs. If you fancy the pattern, you can make clothing out of it. I'm only new to dressmaking myself. Since we do historical re-enactment (SCA,) I've only used linen and wool so far. They're nice to wear. If I were you, I'd go hunting through your town to see if there are any shops cheaper than the large chains. Actually, your local SCA group probably knows where to find cheap fabric 🙂 We only have a large chain shop here in town, so I do a big buy up when I'm down in the city. It usually costs me about 1/4 of the price 🙂 Also, look in op shops (thrift stores) and sometimes at markets.
It's a good idea to learn to tell which fabric is which. One simple test is to burn it! Yep, rip off a few threads and go out the front of the store and set fire to it! If it burns, it's a natural fibre. If it melts, it's not. Often you get blends, and you'll be able to tell if the blend is more or less natural by how much of it burns to ash and how much melts. Yeah, I'm a non-smoker, but I carry around a cigarette lighter for this purpose 🙂
