My Favourite Dress Fabrics

As someone who loves sewing and dressmaking, I am constantly going home from work with all kinds of fabrics to turn into something new to wear. When we have new fabrics arrive at our building, I can always be found ogling the rolls and debating over which ones I like best, as well as thinking about what I could possibly make from each one. If you, however, do not live within driving distance of our stores and are unable to make the trip to visit us in person, there is always the option to purchase Dress Fabrics Online from our website.

One of my favourite Dress Fabrics that is perfect for this time of year is our double knit jersey. This beautiful fabric is fantastic for winter garments such as dresses and skirts, and is guaranteed to keep the wearer warm during the cold weather. My favourite garment to make from this fabric is a circle dress with a scoop neck and three quarter length sleeves. I make one of these dresses every year for Christmas Eve, always choosing a different colour each time - this year I have chosen our purple double knit jersey and I am really happy with the results! I am planning to make a couple more of these dresses in the colours we have more recently added to our range, such as the rose double knit jersey which is a lovely, pale shade of pink.

As well as offering everything we have in store in our stock on our website as well, there is also the option to purchase samples of nearly all of our Dress Fabrics Online. Samples are available at a cost of merely £1.00 each, and if you are purchasing samples only, postage and packaging within the United Kingdom is free. We always recommend purchasing a sample if you are not sure that a fabric is right for your project and want to see and feel it before you purchase the full length that you require.
