  1. I recommend going into Fabrics Direct. They do specialise in upholstery/soft furnishings but they have a dressmaking section. They also source vintage fabrics from estate sales and currently have a lot of vintage winter fabrics if you’re into that thing.

    • Thanks Sarah! :) I have been back l since I wrote this (I should update!) and I got some cute vintage finds too, I wondered where they got them from, must have been from an estate sale.

I love comments so please feel free to say "hi" xx
