Does anyone know where I can buy quality cotton based fabrics with good prints in London. They're for dresses so ideally some kind of blend. But it has to be high quality as the dresses are structured panel dresses.

Here is an idea of dresses and fabric.

Liberty?

Tried there. Lots of lovely things. But their prints are all too small. I need a large print, nothing too delicate.

How about Cloth house in Soho? Or the Cloth Shop in Portobello?

never even heard of those. Excellent. Will give it a bash. thanks

There's a place called Soho Silks that someone recommended that I'm also going to check out which is near the Cloth House place.

may sound a bit mad, but Ikea had some biggish, funky prints last time I was there

Marimekko?

Cloth House and Soho Silks are both on Berwick St, and there are another 2 or 3 fabric shops down there-brilliant way to spend an hour or two!

Whereabouts in London are you? My nanny swears by a huge place in Clapham. I've not been yet, but she has great taste.

oh and that bit of Liberty where the wools are (not the middle bit where the tana lawn fabrics are) they have some Amy Butler prints - may be worth a look.

I live in SW London actually - so Anchovy if you could get the details, that would be fantastic. Thank you!

Going to to Berwick street next week.

BlingLovin - this is it fabrics galore.

It is Lavender Hill in Clapham - I'm also in SW London and keep meaning to go but haven't made it yet!

BlingLovin Thu 18-Sep-08 16:49:48

Brilliant! Thanks. Will go as soon as possible and let you know what it's like!

Do - I love making pj bottoms for the DCs and keep meaning to go there, so I need you to enthuse me!

Anchovy - I found the fabric at one of the Cloth Houses, so didn't go to the Clapham place. Thanks everyone for the suggestions - there were some fantastic shops in this selection!
