In search of the perfect red denim.Can you help, please?

Why is it that when you have a specific project in mind it’s nigh on impossible to find the fabric you have in your head?

Hmmmm?

No…you’ve no idea either?

Phew…I thought it was just me!

Case in point…the red denim skirt.

apologies for crappy phone photo

Having made this skirt up in blue denim and worn it at least twice a week since it came off the machine (in fact I’m wearing it as I type), I’m Jonesing for a red version.

With this in mind I ordered a sample of this red denim from Ditto fabrics:

Sadly, whilst the colour is lovely, the fabric is too lightweight for the skirt.  I’d say it was more suitable for dresses.

So I’m still on the hunt for the perfect stretch red denim and would really appreciate your help.  If, on your travels across the interwebs, you come across some medium weight stretch red denim or twill, would you mind letting me know?

Thanks so much.

  1. I’ve seen a few red denims at various Goldhawk Road shops but not sure if any of them are stretch. I’ll be visiting in the next couple of weeks so if you can wait, I can get you some samples and send them to you. x

    • You are a treasure. There is no rush at all, just as soon as I find the right fabric I shall snaffle it. Samples would be marvellous if you get the chance.
      Thank you for such a lovely offer of help. x

    Ugh, I have been looking for an awesome red denim for like two years. Would love it if you’re able to find some!

    I’ve never looked for this before so I’ve got no suggestions. But I’ll keep my eyes open.

    This is a USA store if you can’t find the red stretch denim.

    Ok, this isn’t a denim, but Truro fabrics have a red stretch drill. The photos show it being pretty red-red, but it is also listed as “heavy”. Maybe a sample request would be in order? http://www.trurofabrics.com/cotton-fabrics/heavy-cotton-drill-fabric-red.html

  6. Wow the skirt will look fab made up in red …. little late to the party sorry.
