That's why we're so excited about our latest collection of party and evening wear fabrics. We've got everything from classic satin to trendy velvet, in a range of colours that will suit any taste. And best of all, a lot of these fabrics are easy to work with and easy to care for, so you can focus on having fun at your next event.

Shades of Navy


Navy is always a popular colour for special occasion and a party-wear. Some of our navy and dark blue dress fabrics are reminiscent to recent trends while others offer a more traditional design. With complimentary colours and patterns that will never go out-of-style! Check out our brocades and taffetas for fabulous navy pairings.

Teal blues and greens are also a popular choice for festive party wear, but they are a great transitional fabric for all seasons, if you pick the right dressmaking fabric it'll work for many a special occasion. Our liquid satin range is always popular around this time of year with emerald and bottle green being our fastest selling fabrics. Coincidentally they are the fabrics we get the most feedback from in the form of customer makes.
