I've got another exciting batch of new fabrics to share with you this month! Check out my latest Youtube video where I show you them all up close - its such a great way to get more of an idea of how they drape and move! 

I'm really excited to have the new fabrics from Atelier Brunette! Pictured right is Sparkle melba - a beautiful cotton lawn. It would make a lovely blouse or summer top. 

Below are the new colours of the amazingly soft and floaty viscose crepe from Atelier Brunette. The picture include some of the older shades too and I think they all just look so lovely together. These fabrics are great from everything from shirts, tops and dresses to trousers. They are light weight but not transparent so very versatile. 

Next are another beautiful new batch of cotton double gauze stardust. These fabrics are so lovely and soft and the embroidered gold, shimmery dots make it extra special. I've seen some amazing garments made up in this online from tops and dresses to kimonos - so nice! 

One final note on Atelier Brunette we now have a selection of bias bindings made using their fabrics. More colours of the viscose crepe will be on the way soon, but for now these are the ones we have....

Next up are some beautiful prints from the Cotton + Steel / Rifle paper Co Amalfi collection. If you've been keeping an eye on the just arrived section you would have seen these a few weeks ago. They have been really popular but we still have some left. 

These gorgeous prints are on a cotton and linen base cloth so have a nice about of structure to them. They'd be great for an a-line skirt, or a pair of shorts. I think the would also be great for bags and cushion covers too!

These Japanese Kokka fabrics are also a cotton/linen blend so have the same weight and feel to the ones above. The colours are really bright and strong! 

Pictured below left are two beautiful floral Japanease Kokka prints. The darker one is a light weight cotton lawn and the lighter one is a double gauze. They'd make lovely summer tops and blouses - so breezy and fresh! 

Pictured below right is a an ex designer cotton/poly mix with a little woven in fluffy spot, which gives lovely texture to the fabrics. The light blue one is a cotton - a similar weight to a poplin - so heavier than a lawn for example, but nice and crisp. It has little rectangles of turquoise, red and blue woven into it. I think both these fabric would be nice for shirts or shirt dresses. 

These cotton stretch sateen fabrics would make a amazing pair of summery trousers like the the Closet Case Sashas or the Sew Over It Ultimate trousers. 

The rest of the fabric delights I have to show you this month are all stretchy ones. 

Pictured below left is a light weight viscose jersey with a deco fans print that would be great for tops and t-shirts or swishy dresses. Below right is a light weight cotton stripe jersey in the most gorgeous array of summery colours! 

These fun printed jerseys would make lovely leggings or t-shirts for little ones. The sea creatures print is light weight and the tractors one is a bit heavier as it has a loopback - so great for jumpers or hoodies. 

These lovely soft and cosy fabrics would make great jumpers for layering at this time of year. Below left is a fleeceback sweatshirt fabric with an unusual herringbone type texture with flecks of dark grey and below right is a reversible fabric with a soft pastel mint coloured loopback texture on one side and a marl cream/light grey colour on the other. It's the same type of fabric that I used to make the Sewaholic Fraser sweater where I revered the yoke section to add a bit of contrast. 

These gorgeous organic cotton/modal loopback sweatshirt fabrics are by Chat Chocolat. I love the 80's inspired prints! They would be great for jumpers and hoodies. 

Finally are these snuggly quilted jerseys that are each made up of two colours giving a nice two tone/pixilated effect. They would be great for jumpers and tops too.
