Outlander Dress Fabric is Back (SOLD OUT!)

outlander plus fabric for blog

(INVENTORY IS SOLD OUT)

Double bouquet fabric panel (as featured on Outlander) is available for $99 in our brick-and-mortar store, on the second floor in our home furnishing fabric department, or by phone.

If you are interested in ordering a panel, please contact Joie or Dina at 415-392-2910 as soon as possible, as we have limited stock available.

Remember the fabric we featured that Terry Dresbach used to design that amazing dress in the Outlander Starz official trailer and all over the Internet? Well, we originally thought that we wouldn’t be able to get it back in stock, but the manufacturer has made it for us, and we have it available for the general public. The dress is made of a heavy, luxurious furnishing fabric produced in Turkey by one of our favorite sources. Unusually, the floral pattern does not run up the roll, but was designed in panels. Each yard and 1/8 panel contains 2 full bouquets of flowers, and is $99 . We are generally wary of carrying panels like this in the store, because the square design tends to limit application to pillows, ottomans and the like–but we absolutely fell in love with the colors and were confident that our customers would feel the same!

INTRODUCING:
House of Nines Design is an independent hat maker based in San Francisco. All our hats are individually made by hand using a mix of traditional and modern techniques and only high quality materials. We produce custom hats and three ready-to-wear collections per year. Photo by Joel Aron.

Dark Garden – In business since 1989, Dark Garden’s uniqueness lies in their approach to making people feel beautiful – they create corsets and wedding gowns that truly express each individual’s personality and style, bringing out their natural beauty and boosting confidence. They believe every person has the right to feel gorgeous, not only on their wedding day, but any day they choose to make special. Through careful design and fitting, they produce beautiful, timeless and stylish garments that flatter and fit with amazing comfort. Photo by Joel Aron.

Sheri Jurnecka, a practicing San Francisco attorney, costumer, and corsetiere, has enjoyed creating and wearing fantasy and historical costumes since she was a teenager. Her interest in costuming has evolved over time to include embellished and imaginative corsetry as the basis for opulent evening and bridal wear.

Satin Shadow custom designs historical costumes for both men and women. From English Regency evening wear for men, including fall front breeches, to enchanting and highly embellished Victorian Gowns that are perfect for a romantic period wedding, to alluring Jazz Era dresses, exceptional for dancing away the night. Our goal is to make your fantasy costume a reality.
