Dressmaking Fabrics

At Calico Laine, we specialise in Dressmaking Fabrics. You'll find we supply wide variety of fabrics, linings, and trims for every occasion, whether it's an opulent gown for the evening or a summer dress for a lazy Sunday. Though we are officially in spring, the chill hasn't left the air so why no try keeping yourself warm with a garment made of double knit jersey? This fabric is guaranteed to keep you warm during the extended British winter while ensuring you look stylish! It can be used for dresses, tops and skirts and is available in a wonderful range of colours to suit anybody! And as a novice dressmaker myself, I can safely say that it was simple to sew with a very pleasing result.

If it's something a little more elegant and chic you're looking for, try our exquisite collection of satins and chiffon. Popular in use for Bridal wear is duchess satin. Soft and silky to the touch, this fabric is of a heavy nature and drapes beautifully, perfect for that special wedding gown, dresses for your bridesmaids and is even used for lingerie. It is also available as a supersoft fabric, with the same brilliant quality but with a lustrous, soft and flowing feel to it. We promise this Dressmaking Fabric is a must have for any budding dressmaker, regardless of their skill level.

When crafting a garment, dressmakers will of course need to layer it with lining. At Calico Laine, you'll find a huge variety of every colour you could need! Our dress lining is made from 100% polyester and has anti-static properties, perfect to line your dresses and skirts. If you want something a little more luxurious, try our Bemburg Cupro dress lining. This Dressmaking Fabric is often used as a cost effective alternative to silk due to it's soft, flowing properties. It can be used with high end fabrics while still retaining your garments breathable properties, perfect for dresses or suits for any occasion!
