I recently went on a weekend trip with some girlfriends to Melbourne. I love Melbourne, the food, the bars, the shops and the cocktails. However I do believe that Perth is a beautiful city and we certainly have many gorgeous shops and cafes around. I would love to do a long weekend, child free, with girlfriends, pounding the pavement in the fine city we live in. I think we would find some treasures for sure!
Fabric Shops in Melbourne…amazing! Perth unfortunately cannot compare. I was overwhelmed when I walked into The Fabric Store, I have never seen so much fabric, every type in every colour range. I walked out with nothing, it was too difficult to decide. Hopefully I will go with a bit of a plan next time.
Here are my favourite fabric shops in Melbourne.
The Fabric Store – 184 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
Every fabric in every colour! I would love this shop. They had a lot of stretch fabrics, designer fabrics, silks, wools, you name it!
Tessuti – Flinders Lane, Melbourne
Tessuti have an amazing range of dress fabrics including designer fabrics. Tessuti run classes and workshops and often have sewing competitions.
Clegs – Elizabeth Street, Melbourne
Velvet…mmm I really love and never get tired of looking at it. Suiting and wool fabrics, also lots of Liberty fabrics.
There is another place in Melbourne, it is the Alannah Hill outlet store. They have a few other labels there like Gorman. Take a walk upstairs and you will find fabrics and trim for sale. It is a bit junky, but always bargains to be found.
The address is 188-192 Brunswick Street, Fitzroy
Do you know of any Melbourne fabric shops? Would love to hear from you!
