Where to Buy Swimwear Fabric

 

One of the most common questions we get asked is "Where can I find swimwear fabric?". Typically, if you're asking this question you might be new to sewing swimwear, or maybe completely new to sewing in general.

It can be difficult finding resources for swimwear fabric who don't have high minimums, so this post will cover resources for swimwear fabric for the beginner/hobbyist or the micro business owner, who typically buys in 1-5 yard increments.


PLACES TO BUY SWIMWEAR FABRIC IN SMALL QUANTITIES

Here are some resources that are great for buying 1-5 yards (or more if you want!) at a time:

Etsy

Get access to thousands of fabric shops and find all kinds of fabrics through Etsy. In our opinion, Etsy is the absolute best resource for swimwear fabric since there are so many shops out there. Plus, since there are so many shops available it can be easier to find ones that ship to your country.

Here are some of our favorite Etsy shops:

-Fluky Fabrics

-Alex LA Fabrics

-Shavali Fabric

-Swimwear Notions USA*

*Disclaimer: Edgewater Avenue owns Swimwear Notions USA

ONLINE FABRIC STORES

If you run a swimwear business, you'll want to find a consistent shop you know you can rely on. Plus, it's nice to find a shop that has all the latest trendy fabrics in stock!

Here are some more stores highly recommended by our customers:

-Blue Moon Fabrics

-Spandex House

-The Fabric Fairy

Facebook "Destashing" Groups

There are countless Facebook groups for what's called fabric "destashing", which means everyday people getting rid of excess fabric they don't plan to use. This is a great way to get discounted fabrics, just make sure you can trust whomever you are buying from.

Here are some groups that destash swimwear fabrics:

-Edgewater Avenue's group, Swimwear Fabric (& More!) Destashing

-Knit Fabric Destash


Like previously mentioned, Etsy is probably the best resource to start out with if you're looking to find swimwear fabric quickly and easily. However, if you find that you're wanting to explore other blends of fabrics, prints, or styles, then it's well worth visiting some online shops or destashing groups.

We hope that this post has helped you! If you still have questions, we'd encourage you to ask them in our Facebook group. Join here: https://www.facebook.com/groups/edgewaterave
