    Hello there,

    Where are you based? There is a great chain of shops called Abakhan (I'm sure you'll find it if you google it) but I think they are mostly in the north west and wales. But they do online orders and are quick to deliver.

    And Fabricland if you have one close. Or they do mail order from the Ringwood depot.

    I get loads of fabric from there for the dresses I make, good lining, lawn etc.

    hi there, i am based in Brighouse, west yorkshire. thank you for your links, i will have a look online to see if i can find it. its difficult when you first start out, because you waste more than you use and the material is too expensive to just throw away. once again, thank you for your help
    regards

    could always try ebay?

    If you end up getting more than you need, you could always swaps with someone on here. My fabric stash is getting out of control!!!

    Have fun

    is the fabricland fabric good quality? I have had a look at their website and like a few different prints but I am concerned the cotton will be too thin for dresses. I am also just starting to make my own clothes so want a reasonable supplier before my technique improves enough to get something more expensive.

    If you're worried about wasting fabric when something goes wrong, you could always make up a practise version first. A lot of people use muslin which is about the cheapest fabric you can get. Or I tend to use old sheets - you can pick them up for pennies from charity shops.
