Giveaway week day 3: Dragonfly Fabrics

Dragonfly Fabrics - Designer Dressmaking Fabrics

Dragonfly Fabrics should be right at the top of your list for online fabric shopping if you are a dressmaker. They have an absolutely excellent and helpfully varied line of fabrics including cotton jersey, cotton lawn, Ponte Roma, denim, French terry, linen and absolutely loads more. Here are some of my favourites at the moment:

Gorgeous, drapey double cloth for summer dressmaking.
Very on trend – this bold floral lawn would be gorgeous for a summer top or floaty dress.
Just some of their gorgeous collection of Japanese cotton prints.

The folks at Dragonfly have fantastic expertise in dressmaking and can offer advice on fabric choices for your favourite patterns, and you can also order fabric samples so that you can really be sure that you are getting just what you need for your project.

I think it’s the Dragonfly newsletter that has made me totally determined to make summer 2017 the time when I will Get To Grips with dressmaking. Every few weeks I get an email through featuring some of their brilliant range of  indie sewing patterns, combined with some really inspiring pattern-plus-fabric recommendations – so unlike a lot of marketing emails, it’s a great read because I actually learn something, as well as get tempted to get my credit card out. My fave pattern collections of the moment are the simple shapes of the Merchant and Mills range and the just general fabulousness of the Schnittchen collection.

Just some of the fab Schnittchen designs

So, you’ll want to know about the giveaway, I guess?

  1. It’s been too many years since I made something for myself – I feel a lovely, light summer dress coming on!

  2. Dragonfly! Beautiful fabric and patterns. I would love to wear something I made from Dragonfly fabrics. You gift, I’ll be blessed.

  3. Wow!!! what a fabulous giveaway. My husband and I are off to work in France for 5 months and I am taking a lot of sewing and knitting with me to keep me out of mischief!

  4. I already had Dragonfly down as a go to site for fabric, but had missed the sign up options! Really interested in all the lovely patterns too!

  5. I’m trying to learn to make clothes. I’m part way through a practice blouse to try out the pattern before I sew the wearable one. The ‘simple’ blouse pattern I chose is not as easy as it looked.☺

  6. I’d love to win this, I’m about to start a dressmaking course and this would be brilliant to get some pretty fabric to make something after I got the hang of everything 🙂

  7. I am a huge fan of Dragonfly Fabrics, their customer service is superb and it is always such a joy to receive their beautifully wrapped parcels. One of the few online fabric suppliers where I’ve never been disappointed by the colour or quality of the fabric when it arrives.

  8. I would choose a simple pattern with my Granddaughter because she has just started sewing. This would be a great thing for us to do together.

  12. I l❤ve dragonfly fabrics they have such a wide choice of beautiful supplies! I would make a new top for the summer in one of the pretty lawns.

  13. Love Dragonfly Fabrics! Thank you for such a generous giveaway. I have several Merchant and Mills patterns so I would buy some gorgeous fabric and make one garment a reality (probably the Camber).

  14. Ooh yes please, ‘pick me!’ Often browse the dragonfly website – in fact have ordered 5 samples tonight – the prize would go towards my final choice!

  15. I have my eye on the new Jennifer Taylor book due out soon , I was lucky enough to meet her earlier this year where she was modelling a dress featured in her book, any of the fabric featured would be perfect

  16. One of my very favourite fabric websites! I love all their fabrics, especially their linen which I have several of. I would spend this voucher many times over if Lady Luck was on my side. Thanks Ali.

  21. I’ve recently bought the gorgeous Merchant & Mills Camber dress pattern & have been looking for a suitably beautiful fabric to make what will be my first of many so this voucher will come in very useful.
