Festive Dressmaking Fabrics

Over Christmas and New Year everyone is searching for the perfect party dress. Here at Calico Laine we have an extensive range of Dressmaking Fabrics perfect for the festive season. As this is an extremely busy and expensive time of year it can be difficult to find something to wear that fits well and is unique while still being good value for money. Dressmaking is becoming more popular with online tutorials making it easier for people to create their own unique items at home.

Lace and satin are ideal Dressmaking Fabrics to help you create the perfect dress for the party season. A popular lace fabric is our heavy corded lace which comes in an extensive range of beautiful colours. This fabric is particularly attractive due to its scalloped edge which is perfect for creating elegant features such as a delicate hem or neckline.  Another popular fabric for the season is our duchess satin fabric. This is the perfect fabric to use if you prefer a dress with structure as it is firm but soft to work with. This can be used underneath a lace fabric or on its own as it has a silky and glamorous finish.  

When it comes to Dressmaking Fabrics, no dress is complete without a good quality lining.  We have three ideal types of lining to choose from depending on the style of dress you are creating. Our standard dress lining is anti static and comes in a huge range of colours. We also have super soft dress lining and a stretch dress lining, both of which are ideal for dressmaking.
