Top quality fabrics

I've ordered from fabriques so many times I can't even remember and I always receive the best quality fabrics.
I'm a ballroom and Latin dress maker and this shiny swimwear fabric is perfect for making beautiful dance costumes and leotards.
Fabriques is always my first port of call when looking for fabrics for costumes

WOW! Just Amazing ❤️

Beautiful fabric

I bought this fabric to make a modest swimwear. I am bigger than the average plus size so nothing available online fits.
I called to check which fabric is suitable. The gentleman was very helpful and knew exactly what I needed. I put the order through and it was dispatched on the same day. Paid for 48hr post and it came when stated.
The fabric is amazing, although a little hard to work with if sewing for first time. Luckily I know someone who’s used to making dresses from this material. She made me a knee high dress with long sleeves. I cannot be grateful enough having bought this fabric has given me freedom to swim whenever I like. The fabric is quick drying and once pulled away from the body doesn’t stick back to you.
Thank you so much to the man I spoke too. Would highly recommend this website for quality of material and excellent customer service.

Amanda Gregory (GB)
Excellent range of fabrics and customer service

Bought a range of stretch Lycra and power nets from Fabriques. The quality is really good and the colours are vibrant.
The customer service has been brilliant. Collected from the warehouse and was given the opportunity to see the range of Lycra as well as advice on which fabrics would work best for the project I’m working on.
Will definitely order from Fabriques again and highly recommend them to others.
