We recommend using jersey point needles for sewing knit fabrics - a jersey point or ball point needle is better for sewing jersey because they have a rounded tip. This means the needle can pass between the fabric threads by separating them, without damaging the fabric. You might find a normal sewing needle will result in  skipped stitches and make your sewing project curl annoyingly! If you want to get the most from your dressmaking, including sewing with this khaki green sweatshirt fabric, there are lots of helpful articles online, including these tips from the sewing guide.

Colours can appear differently on screen, so although every care has been taken to represent them accurately, some variations may occur from real life. To check colours are as you expect we recommend you order a sample, to see and feel the fabric in the flesh. Free samples are available for all fabrics! Colours can also vary between dye lots, so please ensure you order enough for your project.

So we can package your fabrics beautifully for posting, they will be taken off the roll and folded. We try our best to always send fabric in one continuous length although this is not always possible, we will contact you if this is the case. Some fabrics are also on sale in our shop in Bridport, Dorset, so on rare occasions stock may not be available where it appears to be online. We do our best to avoid this and many fabrics can be reordered, again if this occurs we will contact you to discuss the options.

To keep your lovely new fabrics in the best condition we recommend checking out the Product Info for details on how to care for them. Washable fabrics should always be hand washed, before cutting and making your projects, in order to allow for shrinkage.
