Choosing your fabric

YOUR FABRIC MAKES YOUR DRESS WHAT IT IS AND ALLOWS YOU TO SHARE YOUR STYLE AND PERSONALITY WITH THE WORLD.

Scott Nickson sources fabric for each customer to order, from a variety of carefully selected, tried and trusted suppliers across Yorkshire. 

It's a good idea to consider the colour and texture and pattern of the fabric you'd like for your dress before your first consultation

Of course, Scott will discuss the different fabric options with you and advise you on how different choices of material will affect the style, the feel and the fit of your dress. 

Can I choose my own fabric from a supplier I find?

The elasticity, weight and composition of fabrics makes them react to being cut, sewn and washed in different ways.

As a dressmaker and designer, Scott has worked with a wide variety of fabrics and therefore it's always advisable to allow him to choose a fabric he knows will achieve the results you're after.

Can I see and feel the fabric before I say yes?

Scott visits fabric suppliers in person and all customers will receive photographs of the fabric options to choose from. 

You'll get to choose from a shortlist at your second consultation, when you try on your mock dress.
