Hey there! Recently I started a course in tayloring and I can’t seem to find any directions to guide me on how to pinstripe my black Gambardine fabric. I want to draw the stripes with light grey or white ink but I don’t even know what kind of ink I could use or if it’s better to consider other process. Could some taylor give me an advice on the matter?

Pinstripes are normally part of the manufacturing process.

You could top-stitch or embroider pinstripes, which may end up interesting or terrible depending on the execution. But there is the possibility of genius there.

There are also companies like Jacquard Products that specialize in selling products to treat fabric:
