In the links above you will find hundreds of fabric options for your custom made garments.  We only buy first quality fabrics and over the years have learned what prints, weights and styles our clients enjoy the most.  I understand that choosing the right fabric for a garment can be a bit overwhelming with so many choices but hopefully the explanations at the top of each page and pictures will help you with your selections. When choosing fabrics for a garment that needs coordinating fabrics, please use the link to the Cotton Collections. 

If you would like to send your own fabric, please contact me first with the kind of fabric you are sending as well as the style number and size so I can give you an approximate yardage amount.  I am happy to sew with clean, new cotton, poly/cotton and linen fabrics.  Polyester, rayon and other man-made fabrics are hard to manage on my machines and take a great deal longer to work with than can be afforded for the prices listed.  Please do understand that while you are welcome to send the above fabrics, there is no longer a discount given.  When you order, be sure to mark your fabric as an A fabric so that you are not charged anything extra and in the space where you list your fabric choice simply put "sending own fabric". 

For our more expensive fabrics, there is a small surcharge.  As you add garments to your cart, you will be able to add the surcharge based on the suffix of your fabric code (-A, -B, -C or -D). Almost all garments are priced based on a –A fabric.  The surcharges for the others simply cover the extra cost which we paid when purchasing the bolt of fabric.  To purchase yardage of any of our cotton fabrics, please send us an e-mail with fabric numbers and desired yardage. Tropical Breeze fabrics are available for purchase on the "Fabrics for Sale" page.

Fabrics are difficult to photograph so we use the pictures provided by the manufacturer.  We have done our best to represent color and size to you, but every computer will portray color and size slightly differently, depending on its settings.  If you are unsure about a fabric, please send for a fabric swatch before you order your garment as custom made garments are not returnable.  To request fabric swatches, please send a stamped, self-addressed envelope.  Please limit your request to 4 swatches at most.  Send your envelope to:
