Summer fabrics in the shop right now!

We have so many fun, beautiful dressmaking fabrics in the shop right now! We have gone crazy for embroidery, bold prints and linens. Heres a look at what we've got, just for you!


Stretch Twill - Flowers in Candy Pink & Blue & Floral Leaf in Pink

This versatile stretch twill features bright, stand-out prints. Super fun for summer, you could use this fabric for skirts, trousers, jackets and dresses. You may have to think a little out of the box for these fabrics, just as they're so bold and bright! If you wanted to really embrace Summer and florals, why not sew up some City Trousers by The Avid Seamstress or a Nina Lee Camden Pinafore?


Embroidered Cotton Denim 

This pretty embroidered cotton denim fabric is perfect for spring garment sewing! It's a lighter weight denim which works well for dresses, skirts and button up shirts. It has a little drape and is not too heavy to for gathers. This fabric is perfect for a Tilly & the Buttons Rosa Shirtdress or a Selkie London Skirt

Linen Blends!

Our linens all vary in drape and texture, from our blush and natural linens which have a looser weave and a rustic beauty, to our fuchsia and lavender linens that have a closer weave and more saturated colour. They are all suitable for summer dresses, loose trousers and tops! We think this linen blend would look great as a pair of Tania Culottes by Megan Nielsen, a Charlie Caftan by Closet Case Patterns or a True Bias Yari Jumpsuit.

Cotton Lawn - Crowded Faces - Ochre & Navy 

This beautiful lightweight cotton lawn is just right for dressmaking! From British design house Lady McElroy this is a brand new colourway of the popular Crowded Faces design. We now have it available in the lovely Ochre and rich Navy! We can see this working beautifully as a Closet Case Patterns Kalle Shirt or a Named Asaka Kimono.


Linen Viscose - Birds in Navy

A bright, colourful bird-print linen/viscose that is perfect for spring! Gorgeous drape and fun to wear! Every wardrobe needs that perfect summer dress, why not try the 1940's wrap dress by Sew Over It? Paired with some sandals, you'll be ready for day and night!

Stretch Cotton Corduroy - Olive

Our huge corduroy delivery included this lightweight, super fine wale stretch cotton corduroy that we love for spring. It's suitable for dresses, gathered skirts, shirts and more! We've got the Denim Button Up Skirt in mind by Anna Allen or a pair of Tilly and the Buttons Mila Dungarees!


Denim Chambray

Here it is - the perfect chambray denim, in the perfect weight and best colours! This denim is just right for spring dressmaking projects, from dresses, to skirts to shirts! The possibilities are endless with chambray, such as Jenny Overalls by Closet Case Patterns or a simple Aida Top by Sew Liberated.

Embroidered Cotton

A pretty embroidered floral and leaf design on a lightweight cotton fabric, perfect for a summer and holiday dress or top. This embroidered cotton would make a great pairing with the Myosotis Dress by Deer & Doe or a Friday Pattern Company Raglan Blouse - it would look amazing for that summer wedding or those holiday beach strolls!

You can find all of our beautiful, dressmaking fabrics in the shop here. And we can't wait to see what you make! Don't forget to tag #thevillagehaberdashery and share what you make with these fun fabrics. We LOVE to see!
