    From what I can see of the first one, I assume it and the second one are seersucker. The third one looks like a wool skirt I had years ago, but I don't remember what the plaid was called.

    Thank you ladies, you have been a big help. I wish I knew fabrics like you!

    Grab a corner of the garment, squeeze tightly, then let drape naturally. If there are no crisp visible creases or lines that seem to last, then the fabric content definitely has some polyester content.

    Nobody should even pretend to identify the fiber content based on how they look. I could get there by drape, smell, burn test, tactile sensation etc. and tell you the weave more easily. Your best bet is to Google "fiber burn test" and go from there.
