Today I made my second pair of Laura Pants and my first Eva Dress and I am so proud of what I've made! Thank you for making your patterns easy to follow and for giving tips that have made my garments look really professional. I can't wait to wear them and I'm looking forward to investing in some more linen so that I can continue my transition to a sustainable and ethical wardrobe.

P.S I love the armholes on the Eva Dress. It is perfect for wearing by itself in the summer or layered over fitted tops for the winter, it is going to be my new go-to layering piece.

It had already arrived and was opened and on the table with a piece of your beautiful linen next to it before I rang to thank you so very much at 2.09. That was 9 minutes earlier than you let me know it was coming and just the very next day after I had ordered it. Your promptness always delights me. I smile as I open it. Tied with a lovely white ribbon and bow and card it's like receiving a gift in today's computerised lack of customer service.  Well done you!!!

I wanted to let you know that every aspect of my interaction with Tessuti has been top-notch. Your website is easy to navigate, with great fabrics, supplies and fashionable, wearable patterns. The purchase was simple and straightforward, and the package arrived in less than a week at my house in Austin, Texas (vs 2 weeks or longer from other online fabric shops). Your packaging is some of the best I have seen, using minimal materials to provide protection for the contents. The items arrived in excellent condition. I am completely pleased with the fabrics and pattern I ordered, and I look forward to wearing my new dresses soon. I previously ordered a pattern download (Sophie - which has quickly become a favorite dress) but this is the first time I've ordered fabric and a hard copy pattern from you. It won't be the last!

My parcel has already arrived and the fabric is washed and on the line.... yeah. The Linda Fern is exactly right and fits right at home with my Harley three piece set and my other pinks and whites. Thank you again! And have a brilliant weekend. I have a big party on and think it will be warm enough to wear my Evie Bias Skirt with matching Bondi top (shortened from the dress) with a mustard linen Harlow overshirt.... love your patterns!

I’ve just received my Harlow Shirt pattern and I’m emailing you to say thank you. Firstly it was here in Brisbane in two days which was great. The pattern is so well instructed and the finishing is how patterns used to be, if not better. I am so, so impressed and I will certainly be a fan. Keep up the good work and the designs.

I just wanted to say thank you so much for such fast and efficient service. My order arrived today four days earlier than expected. I cannot believe a delivery from Australia to the UK can arrive so much quicker than a delivery within the UK, fantastic! I am so pleased with the fabrics, they are perfect and just as I hoped they would be. I can't wait to get started making dresses for the summer. I will definitely shop with you again.

I just received my first order of paper patterns from Tessuti. Wow! What beautiful patterns. Wrapped in ribbon like a special gift. Heavy paper. Pictures with instructions. And arrived from the other side of the world in two weeks! I’m a lifelong sewer. I am seriously impressed and very excited to get sewing!

April 2023

I was visiting Sydney in Feburary from Canada and my mum and I were having lunch and met a lady who goes to your store all the time so I decided to visit your store. When I arrived at your Sydney location, I received the most amazing service. I purchased 5 different fabrics and 3 patterns and when I got back home to Canada, I made one of the dresses with some beautiful wash and wear linen and I have to say it was the most amazing pattern and it turned out perfect. Thank you so much!!! I will be ordering from you in the future. I don't usually make clothes. I just wanted to let you know the patterns were very easy to follow and I was very happy with the results. I ended up making a dress for my mum, my daughter and myself and we all LOVE them!! So this is not a question, just an email to say thank you. I will be purchasing some more downloadable patterns in the near future! I hope you have a wonderful day and thank you again!!

April 2023

Wow! Order arrived on the other side of the world, the east coast of the US, in one week! I will never hesitate to order from Tessuti! So impressed!

Carol, US

I have been ordering fabrics from you for a few years now and I have always been amazed at the speed of delivery to me in the States. So I shouldn’t have been surprised that you’d already prepared my first order! Thank you for indulging all my second guessing and changes of mind. I’m making a skirt up in your fabric and I have been obsessing over the lining colour! I’m sure the navy will be perfect. I do want to say a big thank you to you all for your beautiful quality fabrics and excellent service - I am a big fan!!

Very excited to be returning to making my clothes again, aged nearly 68, with a new Bernina. It is giving me such an enormous lift to start again on something that I thought I'd given up....returning to my youthful clothes sewing is such a JOY!!!! Thank you for such great patterns that seem to be easy to make and easy to wear and full of zest for life!!!! Thank you x 1.000.000!!

I ordered your pattern as I have such fun making your garments, following your instructions. I realise I am an average sewer, but after I finish your garments I realise they are a cut above my usual results.

My Arkie Shirt and Bailee Shorts bundle arrived today.  Cannot believe it came so quickly, I only ordered it yesterday.  Fantastic service again.

I just wanted to say that I'm from the uk, and was on holiday in Sydney over new year. I've previously ordered a few bits and pieces from you to be shipped to the uk over the last couple of years, and so took the opportunity to pop into the Surrey Hills store while I was there. I'm so glad I did. What a lovely shop - so airy and light, with great funky music playing and really helpful folk working there. I bought a pattern and some gorgeous fabric and can't wait to get stuck into them when I get home. Thanks.

I just finished making the TessutiOslo Coat. It looks great! I want to thank the pattern maker and instruction writer for providing clear and detailed instructions - including the photos for your patterns - it was a delight to make this coat! Greatly appreciate the effort and energy that must go into providing patterns for the home sewer.

Gay, NSW

Thank you very much indeed for responding so quickly, I shall now cut the dress out later on today.  I'm going to do them both as both versions are very practical. To-date, I've made up five of your patterns, some of which I have done more than once.  For me personally, your styles are absolutely perfect.  Elegant and easy to wear.  I have lost count of the number of compliments I have received for each of your styles. I haven't bought a ready-made dress for years and I doubt if I ever will. I am 70 years of age by the way and your styles are timeless.  

Sue, France

Hello! I'd just like to send you many thanks for the Tessuti Apron pattern. I tried it out and it turned out beautiful! Thank you so much for leaving free patterns on your site - it is very much appreciated!

Marilene, BRAZIL
March 2022

I’ve been meaning to drop you a line for ages to say how much I love your patterns. I’ve made lots of clothes from Tessuti patterns and I think they’re all brilliant. They’re easily the best instructions of any pattern company out there and the designs could have been made for me. I live in the UK but if I ever had to up sticks I’d head to Sydney to be near Tessuti!  Many, many thanks for your wonderful products.

Bibi, UK

Oh thank you so much! What a gorgeous package, with minimal packaging and everything looking so tempting to dive straight into sewing!Now I know you guys send stuff so quickly and so beautifully, I may never need to leave my house again!

Clare, NSW

I want to thank you so much for your patterns, specifically for the clarity and detail that you have put into the instructions. The step by step guides, along with photos of what it should look like, are so, so helpful. As someone who has never formally learnt garment making, I feel that I have learnt transferable skills from each Tessuti pattern that I have made. It feels like you are sitting with me talking me through each step as I sew. They have been great for building my sewing ability as well as my confidence. My very favourite Tessuti pattern is the Milenda Dress- I now have four - two in linen and two in a cotton print - as well as two sleeveless pinafore adaptations. So - thank you! You do a wonderful job.

Libby, VIC

Thank you for the quick process of my order received today! I continue to love all your fabrics and can only say how appreciative I am of your personalised support. I placed an order for some linen and received a phone call to say you didn't have the amount I ordered available. I was then contacted by a lovely lady to offer a substitute. Well I just love what I received and so quickly! I will continue to shop with your store. Thanks so much for such great customer service.

What a fantastic service. I ordered my fabric and patterns on Wednesday, got a call from you on the same day to clarify address details in New Zealand, and my parcel arrived this morning (Friday morning). Love the fabric and patterns. You make online shopping so easy - I will definitely be shopping with you again. Thanks so much.

I just had to write and say what a pleasure it is to work on this pattern. I am not the most advanced sewist in the world and everything is communicated so beautifully and clearly. I’m using fabric from some old curtains I found in a thrift store and velvet to line my hood and pockets. I’m putting the cuffs on my sleeves now and have to go back to it. Just wanted to drop you some feedback mid-sew!

Julie, USA

Yet again you have proved to be very efficient with my order to NZ which arrived this morning. That's why l like to order from you apart from the fact that I like your fabrics!

I have just completed my fourth pair of Tamiko pants and I wanted to let you know how excellent they are in every way. The fit is perfect, the pattern goes together so well, and your instructions are a joy to behold!  Although I've been sewing for over 50 years, I always learn something from each Tessuti pattern I try.  Other favourites are the Rae top and the Athina top. Your fabric is also beautiful and your service - second to none. I recommend you whenever I have the chance. Thank you for a business you should be very proud of.

Thank you, Tessuti! My parcel arrived already today and the linen material is just BEAUTIFUL!!! I’m so excited and can’t wait to start. As soon as my Milenda Dress is finished today I’ll start on the Felicia (long-sleeved) pattern in this gorgeous fabric.

Keep up the good work! (I’ve already recommended you from Europe to the US). Warm greetings to you and the beautiful city of Sydney.

I just wanted to thank you on behalf of my 90 year old mother. Mum recently placed quite a substantial order with you for some beautiful fabrics. She was delighted to receive them so promptly, beautifully wrapped with a lovely note enclosed. She has asked me to pass on her thanks & to say you have won a loyal client. She is already researching her next order!!!

July 2021

I'm emailing you today to share with you what a great job your team is doing with online orders. I placed an order Saturday 19th June and it arrived at my post office on Tuesday 22nd ready for pickup. Super fast delivery which is greatly appreciated.

Lynne, NSW

Thank you for the email regarding my order.  I received my order was very surprised at the boiled wool I ordered. The colors are so much deeper, richer and just beautiful in person!  I am very pleased and will definitely order more fabric from you in the future. Your patterns are very detailed and look easy to follow; can’t wait to make the Amara Vest out of the rich cranberry red boiled wool I purchased and the Verona Jacket out of the beautiful deep teal boiled wool. I love the patterns and the boiled wool this winter will look stunning.  Thank you so much!

I am SO glad I stumbled on your patterns! I had been looking through traditional pattern books for over 2 years for this type of a silhouette, to no avail. When I typed "lantern dress pattern" into Google search for the umpteenth time your store finally came up! (Technically what came up was a blog post of a woman who combined this pattern with another where she mentioned your store was the source of her original patterns. Google analytics picked it up and pushed it out. Scary in a way but good for me.) I bought the Eva and the Lily patterns immediately.

This piece of washed linen had been sitting in my fabric pile for 2 years because I felt it needed a pattern with more pieces since I wanted to "engineer" some of the less desirable pieces out of the print. It's 100 degrees already here and that called for an over-the-top splash print summer dress. I also have several other pieces of washed linen, all good choices for the Lily. But I would make this again as a jumper for fall/winter in a lightweight wool, as suggested in your text for the pattern.

I technician for an engineering firm so I have access to large format printers. Everything was perfect. The pattern fit perfectly in an XL. Not so much as a thread of alteration. Thanks again. I'll be back.

Sue, USA

Thanks so much. Your shipping is always blazingly speedy but this is pretty remarkable! I can’t wait to make the shirt.

Hi there, just want to say thank you for the fantastic service. My patterns, thread and gorgeous fabric arrived in Perth today- only three days after I ordered it. Amazing! Can't stop - got some sewing to do! 

Julie, Perth

Just wanted to say that during lockdown I have been re-acquainting myself with dressmaking. I recently bought your Bella Dress pattern and I am so pleased with the result. The instructions were super easy to follow (particularly the bias binding tutorial - an area that I have never quite managed to get right before!) and I have an almost professional looking complete dress. Thank you so much. I shall be looking out for more of your patterns now.

Colleen, VIC

I was in Sydney today happily wearing my Rae Dress in a beautiful teal linen also purchased from you. Anyhow, was wandering through the QVB to Town Hall to catch the train home...... and a woman stopped me and apologised for staring at my dress, loved the beautiful fabric and the style. I explained that it was a Tessuti pattern and fabric and she said.. ah, that explains why I have never seen it anywhere in the shops! So thank you Tessuti, I felt gorgeous, looked fabulous, was wearing a designer original and that is as good as it gets!

Deb, NSW

I would like to thank you for sending my order so promptly What a service! It was invaluable as I was having to self quarantine. I have finished my dress and love it! And am now making one for a friend. I’ll be looking for a new project for myself very soon. Once again, many thanks.

Jill, WA

A big thank you, not just for the beautiful fabric I ordered, but also the way it was packaged! The compostable bag is in my green bin, the paper wrapping is recycled and the ribbon is in the sewing notions box. So often, when ordering online, goods come with way too much packaging, especially plastic. Well done! 

Rae, SA

Hello Tessuti Fabrics!!! I just received my first order of fabrics from your Australian website facilities and let me say.....ALL the fabrics are as weighted as they suggested on your website, are as vibrant in color as they looked on your website, are as high a quality as they were presented on your website, and are as beautiful as they looked on your website!!! I am so so very pleased.  Also, thank you for the labels and ribbon - they won't go to waste. Thank you.

I have attached a photo of my latest creation with some of your beautiful linen in the Lisa Dress pattern. I wore it today - 37 degrees in Adelaide, so a good test, in which it performed admirably. Lovely & light, & lack of creases -perfect.

I am constantly amazed at the speed at which you respond to orders, and how quickly they get to me in regional NSW. But, I think this response to my query re Tokyo Jacket hits the “super service” level!! Thank you so much for the downloads, and the incredibly fast response. I appreciate your service and look forward to the new pattern and fabric. Thank you.

Joyce, NSW

I just had to write and pass on my thanks to your staff for the excellent service I received last week when I ordered a Point Presser and clapper online. I received this parcel within a couple of days and it was exactly as I wanted, not only that, but it was wrapped with bubble wrap and paper with a lovely touch of ribbon and label. It was such a surprise, as it is rare to receive such excellent service and a little bit of something extra. I just had to write and let you know that I appreciated what you had done.  It made my day.  Keep up the good work and stay safe.

Beryl, VIC

I just want to say thank you for being so great. A few months back, I downloaded the apron pattern and it was so fun to make. The directions were clear enough for a beginner to follow. I was able to knock it out in a weekend. Then I ordered some fabrics from you on September 29th and they arrived TODAY (Oct 5th)!! Even without the time difference, that is so amazing! 

Anyway, thankyou very much for my beautiful fabrics. I am sure to be back again. Stay safe!

Nora, USA
Oct 2020

Thank you SO much. Only ordered two days ago. The patterns arrived this morning and are brilliant. You obviously take great pride in your product - the clear patterns, the instruction books and the presentation. It felt like my birthday! Can’t wait to get started with them.

Alison, NSW

I have just started sewing again after 35 years and as I live in Hobart there is a limited choice of fabrics, I started to look online for somewhere to purchase quality fabrics. I bought some ponti fabric and was impressed by the quality of the fabric. The ponti pants pattern which I used is a perfect fit for me as well. Today I received my second order of five fabrics and again very happy with them. In addition the service is spot on, deliveries arrive within a few days, so thank you Tessuti, I only wish I could visit your shop personally.

Bev, TAS

I ordered some fabric from you four days ago. It arrived in California today. The colors and quality are all perfectly beautiful. Thank you so much for your prompt and service. I ordered some buttons 17 days ago from a vendor in California. I still have not received them. Now that I know how easy it is to order your fabric, I will be a loyal customer. 

Thanks again,

Hi Tessuti

I just wanted to let you know that I am thrilled with my order of fabrics and patterns that arrived in the post today.  In particular the Into The Forest technical polyester is gorgeous and I can’t wait to make it up!

Thank you for brightening up my life in semi-lockdown,

Dear Staff at Tessuti,

What a treat it has been to shop with you! Thank you very much. I just loved the packaging in the compostable bag, the brown paper wrapping (reused from your end and now by me too!),

all finished off with the flourish of the ribbon and little tags to put on my completed garments! I must also commend the person who added the elastic so effortlessly at the last moment - Matthew! 

Well done all!

Super fabulous!

Leni, VIC

A huge thank you for such wonderfully efficient service, I have just collected my beautifully packaged parcel from my mail box. My expectation with the current delays due to covid-19 were that I should expect to have to wait at the very least  a week to receive this parcel. I recently ordered items from a major retailer and paid for their express courier delivery and waited three and a half weeks for the single item.  Just goes to show that small independent retailers such as Tessuti can time after time deliver far better service than big nationals and multinationals.  Thanks and well done and hope that your team are all keeping safe and well.

Best Wishes

Bronwyn, NSW

To be honest I was doubtful my gift certificate would arrive to its recipient in a timely manner…all things considered, and a delay will have been totally fine.

However, you moved the unmovable and, transported as if by magic, the gift vouchers arrived at her door last Friday less than 48 hours after purchase. She was super excited and very happy.


Thankyou Tessuti people.

Lee-Anne, VIC

I’ve been a long-time reader of your blog and recipient of your newsletter, but placed my first order from Tessuti just this past weekend. I’m really happy with my purchase. The fabric is beautiful. It was so well packaged and the delivery was incredibly fast, particularly in this time of Covid-19 - three days from Sydney to Canada! 

Amanda, Canada
Apr 2020

Thank you so much! The order was amazingly fast! It arrived at 9.05am this morning, even though I ordered at 3.30pm yesterday. Thanks for all your efforts in ensuring people get their 'fabric fix'.

Ann, ACT
Mar 2020

Just a quick note to say thanks for my order; again, your delivery is blazingly speedy (particularly if the US Customs folks are on their game). It looks like someone added a piece of Vilene to my order; if you need me to add some payment for this, let me know. I love Vilene and we can't get it here in the US. In the meantime, please know that I've bought many of your hard-copy patterns and I love all that I've made. Indeed, my biggest problem is tearing myself away to make any other patterns. I hope you'll continue to keep hard-copy patterns in stock, and I look forward to any and all additions to the line. If you eventually find a US firm to handle marketing for you, that would be great. But frankly, I enjoy ordering directly from you in Australia.

Jean, USA
Mar 2020

Just wanted to say a huge ‘Thank You ’for my order which I received in double-quick time and which is perfectly lovely in every item. So glad I found you on my visit to Sydney last autumn, when I was able to browse in person both of your outlets there. Happy memories as I sit and sew. Your service is impeccable and your goods of highest standard!

I just want to say thank you so much for your great service and incredibly fast shipping. Normally when I order fabrics from abroad it takes weeks and weeks before I get it. This time it shipped in a couple of days, it is unbelievable, and a very positive shopping experience for the customer.
