I've just added eight beautiful fabrics to the store - all perfect for your summer sewing projects.
This little summer collection includes an ever so soft 100% cotton chambray in three classic colours, two new laundered linen solid colours, plus a laundered cotton/linen skinny stripe - again in three classic colours that will see you through many seasons to come.
The cotton/linen stripe is laundered giving it a stylish lived in look, plus it makes for easy care and comfortable summer living. A must in my books! Choose between Gotland Red, Oland Black or Finhamn Navy stripes.
The chambray is a light weight cotton, wonderfully soft and with a beautiful drape. Just perfect for shirts, summer skirts and dresses. A true light weight, classic fabric. Your colour choices for this are Soft Red, Denim Blue or Dark Blue. Each is 145cm wide and only $26.00 per metre making these great value for money!
Spring is a time of new beginnings, and here that means a new fabric collection added to the store. I'm excited to introduce Monaluna Organic Cottons - vibrant and fun prints with co-ordinating solids. The 100% GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) Certified cottons are available in three substrates. A fine lawn; a quality, high thread count poplin; and a wonderfully soft jersey interlock....a little something for everyone.
The latest collection from Named Clothing has arrived in store. I personally love this collection - it is full of timeless design details used in unique and interesting ways. Right up my alley! It is also a very versatile collection that, depending on fabric choice, can be dressed up, dressed down and can be crafted to suit most seasons.
The collection is called Evolution Theory and is a study on the evolution of fashion - how certain fashion staples became what they are today.
The collection combines details from one garment to another in unique ways with a particular focus on cut in order to create interesting, yet natural and effortless designs. . As a result, there are garments like a blouse with trench coat like details, a double-breasted jersey dress and a kimono-inspired tee.
The collection also takes its inspiration from the Finnish nature, the crude rocks, coniferous forests and cold water. The colours in the collection reflect this origin; ice blue, pine green and granite grey.
Hand block printed fabrics - graphic patterns in classic indigo colourways. All feature the charming irregularities of a thing hand made. Light weight fabrics perfect for layering or for spring and summer days.....only seven weeks left of winter, everyday is getting a little lighter and longer.
Or treat yourself to a solid pair of hand forged, brass handles scissors or shears. There is even a left-handed tailor's shear. Discover the Little India Collection here.
Colette Patterns have released a new skirt pattern. Selene - a classic pencil skirt. I have been lucky enough to get an advanced copy, so I've made one up in denim for casual autumn style. It is perfect timing as my autumn wardrobe is somewhat lacking (to say the least!).
