Turner Dress Fabric Ideas

The Turner Dress is the perfect canvas to play with fun fabric! It can be tricky to find the right kind of knits online so we’ve pulled together some fun Turner Dress fabric ideas for you!

Equally suited to solids or prints, your look is really up to you! Keep in mind, because of the flare on the skirt, stripes will not stay horizontal across the whole skirt. You can see what it looks like on my Turner in buffalo plaid that I shared on Instagram. Without further ado, FABRIC!



A fun print on a classic silhouette is one of my favorite twists. How neat is this “subtle” panda print??



Want a classic Turner Dress in a luxurious fabric? Merino jersey is hard to beat and this is the fabric we used for the solid cover dress. These double knits would also make squishy and luxe Turners, but you’d want to use a lighter knit to line the bodice so it doesn’t become too bulky.



Botanical and floral prints are a perfect match for this silhouette! We love these modern takes.



Rich, dark, classic prints are perfect for dressing up or down. These would be equally fun with a pair of fancy heels for night or a brightly colored cardigan for day.



Nothing wrong with a closet full of solid Turner Dresses either! Maybe you need a whole rainbow!

    I love this look which looks great on curvy woman. Mood Fabrics has some really nice knits for this look.

    1. Do you work for Mood Fabrics? I’ve noticed that you’ve recently been commenting on lots of different sewing blogs, always recommending Mood or providing a link to them. I also notice that the same IP address under two different usernames also made recommendations to Mood, which would suggest you’re using multiple accounts to comment. If you are, that’s unethical behaviour, and may even be illegal.

    Are you going to be doing any Black Friday specials on the Turner Dress? (Hint, Hint!)

    1. There is going to be a sale for all kits and fabric 🙂 Keep an eye on your email!

    Hi Jenny, would a non-stretchy rayon work for this dress??

Let me know what you think!
