When choosing fabric we always seem to assume the fashion designer readily have all the key tools to match your fabric. To make the job easier, especially when a next day request is made. Buying the list below in addition would totally help speedup the process.

1) Lining.

2) Two open and close zippers 

– A zip for a top is long but never as long as a dress zipper. 

– A Skirt/trouser require a much shorter zipper than tops and dresses do.

3) 6 yards of bias 

4) Buttons if needed (Bear in mind the size of the button to fit your style of choice)

5) Thread 

6) Hock and eye

Ensure each item from the list above correlates with the colour code of your fabric.
