SYOF ~ Send Your Own Fabric
Don’t like my fabric? Send your own! 😀
You can send me your own fabric and I will make you something of it. I would prefer to make something I usually do, but am open to new things. Just chat to me.
It is your responsibility to get the fabric to me. I would prefer you wash it first. Please let me know whether it has been washed or not. If it is imported fabric, I would like to know from where so I can follow their washing guidelines.
I charge R80 per children sized item sewn. Your invoice will be adjusted for adult garments. If I need to add coordinate, it will be extra. We can discuss to confirm. I won’t charge if it is only for example, a t-shirt’s neckband, but if it is for the waistband or cuffs, I will charge depending on which fabric you wish I use. Imported fabric is a lot more expensive than what is available locally.
Cotton knit (or any strethcy fabric) works for most items, except bands (maxaloone waistband, yogaloones waistband) and cuffs. For bands and cuffs I recommend cotton lycra (95/5) (or any type of fabric which contains lycra/spandex). The lycra part of the fabric has great recovery, hence it is the popular choice for waistbands.
