Introducing the Adelaide Sundress

Adelaide Sundresses at The Drapery

If you've been following craft blogs for a while like I have, you might remember an early favourite of mine, Hop Skip Jump. Clever Fiona behind said blog makes the most wonderful softies.  She made Basil the Cat for me, who has pride of place in my sewing room.

Fiona and her friend Jane opened a good and proper fabric store called The Drapery in Adelaide a little while back.

If you follow their website, you'll see that they stock the most wonderful array of dressmaking fabrics. It's the sort of fabric shop I'd love to get lost in.

Jane offered to test the Adelaide sundress.  What a brilliant idea when you have all that heavenly fabric at your disposal!

Jane and her gorgeous little model captured some pretty photos in a contrast trimmed Adelaide sundress. You can see more photos on The Drapery Blog.

The Drapery is offering Townmouse customers 15% off full-priced fabrics purchased in-store to use for any Townmouse pattern, during the whole of Spring. (Yes, even Liberty!) Just bring your pattern into the shop as proof of purchase. Jane and Fiona can help you pick out the perfect fabrics and notions!

Jane is currently whipping up another Adelaide Sundress, this time in a Liberty combination.  Keep an eye on their Instagram feed for the results.

Thanks for the Link to this store. Checked out there website. Hard to find cotton knits in Australia. They have a lot of fabrics I'm sure to purchase.

I'm so happy to hear that Di. They are lovely girls and it's always great to support a local, independently owned store


When did they open? I did not know about this shop last year when I came in Adelaïde!

Hi Sophie, I believe they opened in May of 2013. Kind regards, Kristine
