Fabrics I love and why….


Being at that time in my life when my internal thermostat seems to have a life of its own, the fabric that my clothes are made of is of vital importance to me.  I do not need anything that is going to bring on a hot flush!

That’s why I am in love with cotton jersey and butter crepe.

Cotton jersey has the wonderful stretch which means that I don’t feel constricted and trussed up.  I don’t believe that you need to suffer to look good and it’s completely unnecessary with the wonderful drape of jersey.

Which brings me to butter crepe.

I love this fabric.  It looks and feels like silk but is easy care, hardwearing and soft as anything.

As you can see from the JHC collection, jersey and butter crepe are my main fabrics and dictate a lot of my designs.  Once you have tried them you will be a convert too.

Judith Hobby Clothing

Judith Hobby started Judith Hobby Clothing in Dubai in 2011 in response to the lack of affordable fashion forward clothing in the market. Previously Judith had travelled overseas and bought back items that she thought would be of interest to her clients, however, interesting and affordable pieces became increasingly difficult to source. In response to this she tried her hand at designing a couple of simple pieces to see if anyone would be interested – the demand was overwhelming and she sold out in one day! Recognising the region she lives in and the requirements for a more conservative approach to dress, the pieces are designed for mixing, matching and layering year around.
