Fabric Sources for the Greta Dress


Greetings my sew’ist friends. I hope you are well and happy today.

This is a very short – and sweet – blog post with link details of fabric sources for making your own Greta Dress.

The Greta Dress can be made in a variety of knit fabrics that have the correct stretch ratio. 

Choose from Lurex, Metallic Jersey, Stretch Velvets, Embossed Stretch Velvets – anything that has a knit base.

Recommendations are as follows : approx weight of 200gsm – are BEST with at least 50 % stretch across and 20% stretch going down the fabric.

– Jersey Weight – Fibre content approx to = Polyester 80%, Lurex 15% Spandex 5% (approx).

I hope that this helps you find your perfect fabric for your Greta Dress.

And if you have a link for the perfect fabric THAT you found for your own Greta Dress – and would like to share it – please let me know.

Cheerio my friends.

The shop I was looking at on Etsy did not deliver to Canada.
So I went on AliExpress therefore I could not test because of the delays in shipping.
