    Fabrics for Dressmaking (silk/other high-quality)

    Hi All

    Where can you buy silk or high-quality fabric for dress-making in HK? I have checked out Sham Shui Po but it seems the fabrics there are mainly polyesters and don't feel soft/flowy for using for a dress.

    I am hoping to make the following dress using a silky fabric with a nice pattern to avoid having to get beads sown on: Evening Gown O472 - Evening dresses including evening gowns, wedding gowns and bridesmaids dresses

    thanks to anyone who can provide suggestions

    the most economical choice is to use 100% polyester satin fabric.

    Depending on your budget, 100% silk is definitely the best choice...

    I've seen some beautiful silks at Western Market.
