After reading about it on here I made my first order from Textile World - how did I not know about this site before  :D
Fabric came quickly and it is very nice so yesterday afternoon I cut out a simple shift dress (Burda 7580 which is a two piece pattern with grown on sleeves and bust darts designed for knits.) Sewed it up today and it just needs a good press and will be good to go for a meeting I have to attend on Tuesday.

In fairness it's a very simple pattern. You should see me attempting quilt blocks or more complicated patterns slow doesn't begin to describe it

Great dress. Yes it's very satisfying to do a dress in a day. Think of the money you will save (not) by discovering the Textile Centre!
