Making your own clothes from scratch can be very rewarding since you can choose your colours, the style you look best in, and the fabric you feel most comfortable in. We’ve categorized our dress fabrics under winter and summer, so you can quickly pick the warmer or the lighter sewing fabrics you need for a winter top or a summer dress.
Besides having a proper pattern to work from, choosing the most suitable fabric for the season and your body type will help you feel most comfortable and confident in your new creation.
All fabrics are available to purchase in half metre increments, however we cannot do this directly through the website. Please contact us here or by phone on 04 387 4505 to arrange it. We apologise for any inconvenience.
It is important to choose the fabric according to the goal you have in mind. For instance, a pinafore for winter will be perfect in a warmer, comforting fabric of wool check or corduroy that will keep you warm and go well with tights or stockings.
During summer you’ll want to be as cool as possible, and you can opt for linen or cotton floral prints to brighten your day and keep you cool. We also have plain and plaid fabrics and more formal patterns for when you have to dress up for evening occasions where a happy summer dress just won’t do.
