Checked Fabric

Here at Fabric-world we have some beautiful Checked Fabric and now the weather is colder, it is the perfect time to bring these prints out. Our Brushed Cotton is stunning quality and super soft to the touch. It is made from 100 % cotton and can be made into shirts, tops, skirts and many other dressmaking ideas. One of my personal favourites is the Arnewood Brushed Cotton which uses luxurious greens and purples with a lovely tartan check.  All of our Brushed Cottons are 150 cm wide. These beautiful brushed cottons will not only keep you warm but stylish as well.  There are many other designs to choose from so please do have a good look through our website! You can also use brushed cotton to make accessories such as hats, bags and scarves which you can then embellish them with various different trims  and even Self Cover Buttons to add your own touch and flashes of complimenting colours!

We have a fantastic choice of poly-viscose Tartan Fabric as well in some lovely colours and designs. We stock many of the famous tartan design such as Royal Stewart, Black watch,  Lindsey plus many more!  All of these Tartan fabrics are 150 cm and are perfect for all your dressmaking needs whether you are looking for a bright, bold print or something more subtle, our colour combinations are beautiful/ Another lovely touch is to use tartan as a lining on various garments which looks really classic and will also keep you warm which is always a bonus in these colder temperatures!

Hopefully this blog has inspired you to use these stunning fabrics for many of your dressmaking ideas. We love to see and hear from our valued customers and you can share and follow us on our Facebook and Twitter pages! We often have competitions and special offers shown exclusively on these pages!

Until next time,
