Lovely Australian made fabric

Love the colour, love the feel and love most of all that this is Australian made! More please!

I love all my beautiful fabrics from Melco, so cute

Vibrant colours, good feel

Good quality, washes well and didn't appear to shrink. Haven't made it up yet, still trying to find a nice pattern but it should make up well.

Lovely material

Nice and appealing material, easy to sew. Made a carry bag out of it, even after a wash it retained good strength.

Great sewing evening

I love the Melco sewing evenings! You get to meet like minded people who share a passion for sewing and Fabrics. There is always plenty of laughter and of course the opportunity to buy some awesome quality Melco fabric. An excellent evening.

Boysenberry Waffle

I was really impressed at how accurate the colour on the website was to what was delivered. It's a beautiful deep colour and a gorgeous light-medium weight.
Look forward to sewing up Swimstyle's Karla lounge set in this.

Being slightly rural to Melbourne, I was worried about the delivery notification. Mel contacted me personally & advised the delivery process.
Sure enough, I got my delivery the next day. Very impressed with Melco's customer service.

Beautiful Colours and gorgeous soft drape in Cotton Poplin

I purchased this print in Cotton Poplin for my little granddaughter. The sweet print and pretty colours are just perfect for a little girls dress. The Cotton Poplin drapes beautifully for a shirred dress. My daughter loved the fabric so much that I have just purchased anther 3.5 metres of this print in Cotton Poplin to make her a matching dress for her daughter. Colours on the photo are true.

Great colour combination

The linen is lovely to sew with and feels soft. It wears well as it does not crush easily.

Ditsy Daisy Cotton Sateen in Black

I love the look and feel of this fanpbric and knowing it’s a unique Australian print makes it even better. I’m looking forward to finishing sewing this fabric, it’s cut out ready to start today. I’m making the Isla top from Atelier Scammit, a French pattern company. The pattern is free to download on their website.


LOVE love love

Nice to work with

I received the temporary poplin when there had been issues with the original, it is lovely to sew with although I prefer the original poplin. This is still absolutely excellent to use and sew with and I would buy it again!

Poplin is so soft and easy to work with

I made some beautiful Christmas Scrubs with the poplin. It washed up really nicely after arriving a touch stiff. After a wash it was nice and soft and really easy to sew up. Amazing!

Incredible to sew and wear

I purchased this lovely design in cotton lycra to make matching outfits for myself and my partner for our baby shower BBQ. The design is the perfect size and the cotton lycra was an absolute dream to sew, with minimal curling and behaved well under the needle! I will definitely be back for more 😍

Christmas dress ready for granddaughter…. Beautiful to sew, lovely and soft and best of all won’t need any ironing!

Very pretty looking forward to making it up! Nice cotton patterned fabric.


The swatch was very well presented, however, I would have liked smaller swatches of more of the fabrics in the range.

Disappointing quality for the price

Fabric arrived and I was quite disappointed, it feels coarse and the colours are washed out. When the fabric is stretched even slightly (Cotton Lycra) the white base dominates. I'm sad because the design is gorgeous and I had planned for this to be our kids Christmas outfits, but I will have to buy new fabric as I can't use this.

Thank you Melco, for the choice of having the design I chose, to be in either woven or knit fabric. I purchased the knit fabric. Lovely to sew with. I made a Christmas polo tshirt for my 2 year old grandson. I haven't found knit Christmas fabric anywhere else, so was totally delighted to purchase this. Thank you
