Are fingerprints recoverable from clothing?

Clothing is normally porous (a drop of water will soak into it).
Powder is not used on porous materials.
See guidance for processing porous material at the CBDIAI processing guide:

is there another way of getting fingerprints from clothes apart from powder? What is the most efficient way?

Yes, although it is not an ideal surface, identifiable latent latent finger and palm prints (and other evidentiary impressions) have been many times developed on fabric or cloth.
The finer the weave and smoother the surface, the better the chances for success.

What is the answer to this question?

Can the police get fingerprints from a victim's clothing or from fabric? I recently heard from an unreliable source that police were able to identify the perpetrator of a crime by doing this. However, I am unsure the crime even occurred and am skeptical. I have been unable to confirm or deny this in any of the literature I have read.
