It's been a super busy time here at g&g lately as we have been receiving so many amazing new fabrics! I wanted to keep you all up to date with these new arrivals, which as always are in the Just arrived section of the website, but here my latest vlog too. It shows you all the fabrics up close so you can get more of an idea of drape and feel!
Browse the Just Arrived section for all new arrivals, or follow the link before to the specific fabrics I talk about in the video!
First I want to show the new Spring Summer range of Liberty Tana Lawn prints we have. As a new collection of tana lawns they might even be my all time favourite ones we have ever had! The colours are beautiful and its been a while since I made a full garment from a Liberty fabric but I think now might be the time again! They are perfect for shirts, blouses and simple tops like the Grainline Willow tank.
Atelier Brunette have done it again with their new fabrics and these new double gauzes and sparkly jacquard are something really, really special! I fancy making a simple little skirt with the jacquard with the reverse of the fabric as the waist band. Meg who works in the shop made a beautiful Deer and Doe Melilot blouse from the double gauze so I know for sure the fabric looks great as a blouse or shirt!
These beautiful Art Gallery Rayons are so buttery and soft. Their light weight nature makes them perfect for looser styles like the Fancy Tiger Crafts Sailor Top pattern or a blouse with little ruffles.
These gorgeous plain fabrics have 18% sorona mixed with linen and viscose. Sorona is a relatively new type of man-made fibre that is sourced from renewables making it more eco-friendly. It has a wicking nature, is more resistant to wrinkles and retains its shape really well so combined with viscose it has a lovely drape along with a nice natural texture from the linen. It would look great as a shirt of tunic like the Closet Case Patterns Kalle Shirt/dress.
These next beauties are Japanese cotton/linens from Kokka and have amazing bold prints on them. Their natural texture and weightyness makes them perfect for more structured skirts or tunics, as well as bags or cushions.
Nani Iro cotton double gauze is one of my all time favourite styles of fabric. The colours are always look extra special and they are so lovely and soft to wear. These spotty ones would be great for tops and blouses!
These fabrics are also lovely double gauze fabrics. The two pictured on the right have a light catching metallic pattern on them. I love the 'Mustard rain' print too!
These next few fabrics are all a bit different but still special in their own ways. The black and white check is the softest brushed cotton I've ever felt! I think it would make a perfect lining for the bodice of a jacket. The orange and grey art deco jacquard has a fun dressy feel to it and would look lovely as a little skirt or blazer and the geometric coral stretch fabric would look really fun as a summery pair of trousers, skirt or dress!
Adding to our large range of stretch fabrics are these two classic shades of our cosy colours fleece backed sweat shirting (pictured left) which would be great for the classic Grainline Linden or Toaster sweater pattern.
And pictured right is this new weighty double knit fabric that has a lovely structure to it while still having a stretch. It would be prefect for a Tilly and the Buttons Coco Dress or top.
Lastly, not only are these gorgeous new prints for us, they are also a new base cloth. A weighty triple crepe with spandex means they have structure and body while still offering a bit of give - which will make clothes extra comfy! They would be great for dresses where you are looking for a fabric to hold its shape a bit more without being stiff or rigid.
I hope you've found these lovely projects inspiring! My 'to sew' list has certainly grown!!
