Croft Mill

Black Dress Fabrics

As we are a mainly female team, here at Croft Mill we understand how hard it can be to find the perfect dress in the perfect fabric for any given occasion. However we all agree on one mantra ‘you can never go wrong with a little black dress’ especially when it is made out of good quality fabric and measured to fit. Therefore here we have gathered together our black dress fabrics that you can use to make your own.
