Fabric Options

Please choose from the fabrics below, then go to the shop page and type its 'name' in the box provided.

All fabrics are hand picked by me. I particularly love British designed and manufactured fabrics by Makower, Dashwood Studio and Rose & Hubble. If you're interested in other fabrics you've spotted on my customer gallery page, please message me and I'll check if I can source it - some fabrics I've used in the past I'm unable to get from my usual suppliers. Please also contact me if you'd like Liberty fabric as it's at least twice the price to buy per metre, so I will need to include this in the price. 

(NB: I do not chemically treat my fabrics with a fire retardant wash, so please keep away from fire - Particularly long nighties which can 'bellow'.)

100% Organic Cotton GOTS certified - All year-round wear

These are 100% GOTS certified ORGANIC cotton poplins. *This certification covers all aspects of the production of the fabric from the growing of the fibre, to its processing and manufacture, right up to the distribution, giving the consumer the assurance they are purchasing an eco-conscious product. As a dress-maker, I do all I can to insure minimal waste and zero plastic in all my creations and packaging:
