It’s official, I’m a sucker for seersucker! That delicious texture, that purposeful scrunch- I can see much more of it in my future now that the weather is warming up.
You know I love to shop local when I can, and that I’m also forever keeping up with what’s-in-stock locally, so I thought I’d round up a few of the seersuckers that I’ve spotted recently!
The Fabric Store currently has seersucker options, including this rainbow gingham!
Drapers Fabrics currently has quite a few seersucker options at the moment- lots of stripes!
If you’re after textured fabrics but searching for ‘seersucker’ brings no joy, you can try searching webstores with phrases like crinkle, self stripe, textured to see if you get fabrics with similar qualities.
Valley Threads has this lovely cotton lawn seersucker among their shirting-weight fabric offerings.
Definitely not in NZ, Fabric Godmother in the UK has a lovely little selection of seersuckers (including some great colours).
Closer to home (and with $20 shipping to NZ), The Drapery in Adelaide has a nice selection of quite lovely seersucker
What to sew with seersucker?
