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:
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.
