Dress Fabrics for Spring time

Although it seems as if the cold weather will never end, it will soon be springtime and easter will be upon us which means it is time to change your wardrobe from thick jumpers and jeans to brighter dresses, skirts and tops. Here at Calico Laine we have been preparing for the change in seasons with a number of gorgeous new Dress Fabrics coming into stock which will help you create some beautiful springtime apparel.

Our of our most popular spring/summer Dress Fabrics is our cotton spandex fabric which comes in a number of lovely floral designs perfect for making dresses for special occasions or skirts that are smart/casual. They are 97% cotton with 3% spandex which gives them a small amount of stretch making them very comfortable to wear. Made in Japan, 150cm wide and around £9.99 per metre to buy, these fabrics are great value for money as you can make an outfit for a fraction of the cost of ones on the high street without compromising on quality. In the last few weeks we have added to our collection of cotton spandex prints for this year so there are number of jardin summer prints to choose from for your spring wardrobe.

If you are looking to update your wardrobe but do not want Dress Fabrics as heavy as a cotton spandex we have also added to our collection of rose and hubble cotton prints which again, are available in a variety of floral patterns great for spring. These are lighter, 100% cotton fabric and are ideal for making skirts and dresses that need a little more drape to them than the structured jardin prints. These prints are also great for updating your interior in spring as they can make beautiful cushions, bunting and occasional tablecloths.
