Children's Dressmaking Fabrics at your local Fabric Store

This week the Great British Sewing Bee is back on the television and we will definitely see an influx of customers in our Fabric Store as well as more orders online as customers try and recreate the makes on the show. In the beginning stages of the show, there always seems to be at least one contestant who makes an outfit for one of their children back home. On our social media, we often see people sharing creations that they have made for their children. People enjoying making clothing for their kids as it can make their child feel unique and it can be very rewarding seeing your child in an outfit you have created yourself. Here at Calico Laine we offer a large variety of dressmaking fabrics which would be ideal for making garments for the special little people in your life.

If you do not have a Fabric Store near you, Calico Laine Online is the place to go for your children's dressmaking fabrics. For the little ladies we have some gorgeous prints in our cotton prints section suitable for making floral skirts and dresses for the summer months as well as shorts and blouses. Created by well known fabric manufacturer Rose and Hubble; these fabrics are 100% cotton which means that it can be easily washed and ironed, a must for children's clothing. If you are just getting back into sewing or have never sewn before, this cotton fabric is a great choice as it particularly easy to work with. It is easy to cut, does not fray badly and does not move too much when you are working with it. This fabric can also be used to create special occasion dresses by simply adding some dress net as an underneath layer to add volume to the garment.

Rose and Hubble fabrics are not just for girl's clothing however. In both of our Fabric Stores we stock 100% cotton prints in stripes, spots and stars which can be used for boy's garments. Along with this fabric we also stock a selection of fleece fabric which would make fabulous onesies, always popular with the little ones! Patterned fleece comes in football, polar bear, truck and car designs which will appeal to smaller children. For older children, we also offer plain colours which can be embellished with trims and motifs to make them more interesting and are sure to be a hit with the kids!
