    For fabric try www.cheapfabric.co.uk and look at the Cotton Lawn. Really great Horrocks type forals and really good price.

    yay! So glad somebody else has made this too! I found the length ok, but I am tall, and I guess its just different to what we’re used to today. Great fabric – oh how I wish I lived in London to have such choice!

    I bought it in a shop inside the Kingsland shopping center (right by the exit towards Ridley Road) on Kingsland Rd, London, U.K.: 5 meters for 5 pounds (African wax prints are sold in pieces of 5 meters only, at least in London).
