Dressmaking

Our original focus was dressmaking, and we have stayed loyal to our roots by always stocking an exciting selection of dress fabrics to suit all projects – from everyday sundresses, jeans, children's clothes and t-shirts to one-off evening or bridal gowns, tailored jackets and fancy dress costumes.

We are proud to offer an incredible range of textiles - cottons, linens, wools, polyesters and viscose fabrics. The range of fabric types is even broader; plain weave, duchess satin, stretch sateens, velvets, corduroys, twills and drills, sheers, lace, suitings, canvases, denims, gaberdines and so on.

We also keep all the basics - calicos, dress linings, polycottons, furs and fleeces, muslins, hessians and more. For quilters, we can boast a beautiful range of craft cotton prints, plains and mixers that are ideal for patchwork, garments and accessories alike. Why not check out our online offering to get a little taster of some of our stock fabrics?

We understand that some dressmaking plans need only a cheap fabric whereas other special projects deserve a beautiful high-quality fabric. We are confident that you will find the right fabric at the right price.

We also stock most of the current dress patterns from Simplicity, Burda, New Look, Butterick and Vogue in store so you can take everything you need in one go and get started as soon as you get home. We can easily include a pattern in your parcel whilst ordering. This is perfect to get you all set for your next fashion project!

If you want to find out what is in store before you come then don’t hesitate to get in contact with us.

If you live far away we are always happy to send goods by mail order; phone or email and our experienced staff will be only too pleased to offer some tips and pop some samples in the post for you.

Although we have endeavoured to get a true colour on our photographs, we cannot guarantee the colour accuracy of our online fabrics because of varying screens so we would recommend that you send for a sample before purchasing, if an exact colour is important.

Our customers visit our fabric shop from across the South West of England and we are amazed by the wide-ranging projects that our fabrics are used for, we always love to hear about your ideas and see your finished items!
