New Dressmaking Fabric

Here at Calico Laine we stock a huge range of Dressmaking Fabrics which can be used for a multitude of projects. In the last week we have added some new Dressmaking Fabric to our satin and crepe ranges which could be used for making outfits for the Christmas party or even for a special outfit for Christmas Day.

Stretch Satin: This Dressmaking Fabric is ideal for making a comfortable yet elegant evening dress. Stretch satin is similar to duchess satin in weight however it has 3% lycra in its fibre content which gives it a small amount of stretch providing the wearer with a comfortable fit. This fabric is a great value for money buy at £8.99 per metre as a special occasion outfit could be made with just a few metres. New colours added to this range are coral, fuchsia, cream, plum, sage, taupe and purple. Stretch satin is manufactured in Germany and is a high quality fabric which would be perfect for bridal wear both as a wedding gown or bridesmaid dresses.

Crepe: Crepe is always a popular fabric with our customers and with the addition of new colours in the range, it is sure to become even more desirable. It is a heavyweight Dressmaking Fabric with a sumptuous texture which gives it a quality feel. Crepe is a great fabric to use if you are looking for an alternative to satin as it has a matt finish which is desirable for those customers who do not like shiny fabrics. The new range of crepe fabrics has 2% spandex in its fibre content, similar to the stretch satin, providing a slight stretch for extra comfort. It is a versatile Dressmaking Fabric as it will keep you warm in the winter and cool in the summer meaning it is an all year round fabric.
