Successful First Fabric Shop


I found six gorgeous, reasonably priced fabrics today in my exact color palette. It was a major win. Bringing home a batch of beautiful fabrics is incredibly inspirational for sketching.

    I like the colorful fabrics, bright and happy colors appeals to me 🙂
    Are the fabrics 100% natural fibers?
    If they are then you can prewash in a vinegar bath to remove toxins such as formaldehyde, etc., but never do this with synthetics as that will only make it worse according to medical doctors Mr. and Mrs. Clement.

      Hi Ron,

      Thank you! My brand, Undecillion, is about a celebration of life and individuality, so the bright colors are a part of that! And yes, some are 100% natural- linen, silk, cotton, others are poly. Great suggestion with the vinegar! But then how would I remove the vinegar smell? Wash again in soap, I suppose. What’s your favorite laundry detergent? I’ve been using Seventh Generation. Also, I started using polyester because I found that it packs better, wrinkles less, stains less, and is machine-washable, which my customers like.
