1  CITY GUIDES FOR CRAFTSTERS / NEW ZEALAND / Building a wedding dress. Need help finding fabric! on: August 05, 2008 06:47:37 PM
Hey ladies (and guys?)
I'm getting married in Decemeber (yay!) but I'm having trouble finding fabric for my dress (boo!).
I won't divulge tooo much info about the actual dress, just in case Abraham some how finds this site (he insists it will be a surprise) but I'm looking for plain (unpatterned, and mostly untextured) chocolate brown fabrics, probably like velvets or shot silks. and fine tulle/ netting in the same colour.
Any ideas of places? I'm guessing I'll have to do a road trip to Auckland cause Whakatane fabric stores just ain't cutting it, and would appreciate any ideas of where to look, or suggestions of things to ask for!
thank youuuuuu. Cool

There's a new forum and soon to be-market place site over at http://www.craftfetish.co.nz and I for one am super keen to make it my new 'local'. So far it's slowly but surely growing but I'd love it if some of you lovely ladies could join us, as it might liven things up a bit : ) Go have a look!

(oh, and I'm not associated with the site management or anything.. I promise this isn't a spammy advert.)

I've been looking for some too. I'd like one for me and one for my son to take to preschool. I e-mailled around a few of the overseas places about shipping costs, but they all work out pretty expensive. I don't live in a city though, and we don't have an asian supermarket etc so I guess I'll just have to wait a year or so until I get to go on holiday! booo.

I'm terrible with street names as I only lived in the mighty Hamtown for about 5 months and that was yeaaaars ago now, but I know that there's a place called dave's emporium down the side street near burger fuel, and there's a big salvation army if you go through the malls heading away from garden place. Te Rapa has the best opshops, dunno about for fabric though as I didn't sew back then. There's a recycle shop at the dump too which can be awesome.
Sorry, not too much help am i? I'm sure someone else can fill in the gaps. (Thee might be another topic about hamilton? maybe?)
Have you just moved there?

Sorry to be a piker, but you'll have to count me out of this one.
I'm doing craft 2.0 in wellington in just over a month and as of right now I have officially nothing to sell, so I'd better get a-sewing for that.
Sorry ladies. I'll look fwd to oogling pictures of things you get though.
(And I promise to help in any efforts to liven up the NZ board. Any ideas?)

Well done! The halterneck dress is lovely : )
Etsy is awesome, I think it's def. something you should look into.
I would reccommend definitely getting a serger (I couldn't understand quite why it was so important until I realised that I would never buy anything ina store without serged seams, and while I don't aim for my clothes to look like they're mass-produced like the stores, I do want them to look as high quality and like they'll last just as long!).
Good luck!
