We have a huge range of stunning holiday fabrics and, here at Calico Laine, we make it incredibly easy to Buy Fabrics Online. Take advantage of our Sample Service to ensure you pick the perfect fabric to set off that tan.

Kaftans and Cover Ups

Swimsuit cover ups are an absolute holiday staple, these lightweight brightly coloured garments are an easy throw-on and fold up to nothing. Personally, I like mine nice and loose to hide those mid-afternoon holiday snacks by the pool! These are also an incredibly easy sewing project, simply take a rectangle of your favourite fabric and cut a neckline hole. Hem your neckline and all raw edges, finish by creating a matching belt and voila! You have your very own beach kaftan. If you're feeling more adventurous, try adding a side seam or a funky pom-pom trim to stand out on holiday.

Some great fabrics for this are our Cerise Print Peachskin Fabric or our Black/Aqua Print Chiffon. For a plain alternative, try our brand new range of High Quality Chiffon Crepe fabrics in vibrant colours.

Bikinis and Swimsuits

For the more advanced sewer, making your own bikini can be a real pleasure. Swimsuit shopping is definitely not for the faint-hearted. By making your own, you are creating something that fits and flatters your body perfectly. We have everything here at Calico Laine to complete your very own pool-ready bikini, so why not Buy Fabrics Online.

We have a stunning range of vibrant lycra fabrics to create the base of your garment. These are a 4-way stretch fabric ideal for your beach glam look. To complete the project, we have 15mm Plastic Clear Bikini Clasps and plenty of other bikini accessories. Whatever your design, we have everything you need to create your project through our website so you can buy fabric online.
