Description

Dark green/gray calico with black flowers and vines.
Standard weave.

Every 3 months we will post our newest collection of poly/cotton broadcloths for dressmaking. They will be available here until our next shipment arrives and while supplies last.

Please note that the size of the floral is best shown in the original thumbnail view. Once you have opened the listing and see the large picture, the fabric is shown larger than it really is.

Tropical Breeze fabric is produced by a conservative Mennonite company and is best known for its year round wear, lovely drape and hard wearing quality. If pulled out of the washer or dryer and hung up, it does not need to be ironed. You may find yourself passing down dresses from yourself to a friend or from daughter to daughter because of the durability of this material. Some customers choose to wear a slip under these fabrics, especially for warmth in the winter and under the lighter colors in summer.

Tropical Breeze fabrics weigh about 3oz per square yard and are 65% polyester and 35% cotton. It is 55" wide. Take a close look at your pattern to see what yardage you need using 55" or 60" fabric so you don't purchase more than you need. Cut fabric is not returnable and fabric sales are only available to ship to US addresses.

Fabrics are available in half and full yards. If you need more yardage than the listing allows for please send us a conversation and we will see if we have the extra. While we have attempted to portray each fabric accurately, different computers will show colors a bit differently. If you would prefer to have a physical sample before buying please send us a conversation. We will send you our address and you can then send us a stamped, self addressed envelope with your sample requests.

Fabric orders ship weekly, usually on Saturdays.

Elizabeth is a phenomenal seamstress and artist. The 'Anne' dress is the most perfectly made dress in my closet.

The quality of the stitches to the fibers of the fabric are top-notch.

I am so happy with my beautiful dress that I am having two custom jumpers made by Elizabeth.

I had been searching for beautifully modest clothing and now that I have found Graceful Threads, I will be looking no further.

Returns and exchange details
In order to keep our prices as reasonable as possible for everyone, we do not accept returns on our ready to ship garments. I'd encourage you to ask questions before purchasing to be sure that the item will meet your needs.

Custom orders or altered items are not returnable as they have been made specifically for you. If you have a concern about your order after receiving it, please do contact me. It is our desire to please all of our customers. Most disappointments can be avoided by checking size/measurements before ordering and asking as many questions as needed.

Orders are processed and administrative work is begun as soon as your order is placed. For this reason, we do not accept cancellations. Again, please be sure to ask questions before placing your order to make sure an item will meet your needs.

Shipping policies

All items within the US are mailed via USPS Priority Mail which generally takes two to three business days once it has been mailed. Your tracking number will be provided when the package is mailed. As a general rule, we ship each week's finished orders on Saturday morning and packages arrive between Monday and Wednesday. If you order a ready to ship item early in the week and need your package sent right away, just let me know. Time and weather permitting we would be glad to accommodate you.

If you would like overnight delivery or added insurance (over $50), please email me before placing your order so I may adjust the pricing.

International (including Canada) orders will be shipped via USPS 1st Class International. If you would like Priority Mail shipping, please contact me and I can send a paypal invoice for the additional shipping costs. All customs paperwork will include the contents and price of your order. Duties and taxes are the responsibility of the buyer.

FAQs

Ready to ship orders are shipped out in 3-5 business days. We generally ship on Saturdays but if you need expedited shipping, please let me know before you order and I can let you know if it is possible. If you order custom items along with ready to ship items, they will be sent together when the custom items are finished. Our turnaround time for custom orders is one month.
A custom order is any garment where you choose the size and fabric and I then make it up for you. Custom orders have a one month turnaround time. If you require a custom item sooner, add your item to the cart and take note of the price. Then go to the last section of our shop called "Rush orders and Extras" and use the appropriate listing there in order to receive your order by the date you need it.
Some of our listings include a size chart. If you need any help with sizing simply send me a conversation and I'll be happy to help you out. For a child give me age, chest and waist measurement. For an adult give bust and waist measurement. Pattern sizing can be different from store sizing, especially in adult sizes. It's always better to check if you are unsure.
I sure do! If you don't like what you see, please send me a conversation and let me know what kind of fabric you are looking for. I have everything from linen blends to chambray to a much more extensive collection of cottons than I can put in an etsy picture.
Please be sure that you can commit to your purchase before you place your order. It is our desire to provide clothing at a very reasonable cost. We do not build in cost for relisting or time spent in background administration. Therefore, once your order is placed, it cannot be cancelled. Thank you for your understanding.
In order to keep our prices as reasonable as possible for everyone, we do not accept returns on our ready to ship garments or cut fabric. We have found that those who buy to try and then return take a huge amount of time and I don't want to pass those costs on to other customers by hiding administrative costs. Please ask questions before purchasing to be sure that the item will meet your needs.

Custom orders or altered items are not returnable as they have been made specifically for you. I understand that there is a risk in ordering custom made as you cannot try it on before purchasing. I purchase plenty of handmade clothing on Etsy and while not everything is perfect, like you, I enjoy the adventure of having something made just for me.
Please send a conversation with any questions you may have before you order. I will almost always get back to you on the same day during the work week. Questions sent on weekends may not be addressed till Monday. I do ask that you only send multiple conversations if you are serious about purchasing. It goes a very long way in helping me keep prices as low as possible.
