In this months fabric round up, I've got an amazing selection of Autumn and Winter fabrics to share with you as we start to look ahead towards the seasons changing.
Perhaps you are thinking ahead and planning what you will make over the next few months, well my latest Youtube video is packed with beautiful fabrics full of inspiration!
From cosy corduroys to delicate and fancy silks, warm cosy wools and comfy stretch fabrics, there are lots of ideas to share!
Check out my video below and scroll on for all the fabrics I mention in the video. You can also browse our Just Arrived section for the very latest new arrivals as we are getting more stock each week!
The latest collection - 'A Liberty Odyssey' takes us on an adventure inspired by early storytelling – a dazzling contemporary voyage through the world of ancient myths. For this collection, the Liberty Fabrics designers drew upon the potent iconography and enduring cultural significance of millennia-old narratives of gods and goddesses, with four stories of ‘Classical’, ‘Universe’, ‘Earth’, and ‘Oceans’. A sweeping tour across sea, land, and heavens, shot through with captivating mythic imagery and symbolism to ignite the imagination.
These gorgeous fabrics full of colour and detail would be perfect for tops, blouses and shirts. You can check out my blog post linked below for more inspiration on what to sew with this lovely type of fabric!
We have added a few beautiful silks to our range of Liberty fabric this year - they really are stunning! A mix of satin and crepe de chine finish, they drape, flow and feel very luxurious!
To complement this range, we also have a range of ex-designer plain silks. They are a little bit more sheer than the Liberty silks and have a crepe de chine, matt finish and would make very elegant tops and blouses.
These stretch viscose fabrics are still classed as woven but as they have a small amount of elastane they offer a nice amount of stretch for extra comfort. Their twill weave makes them a heavier weight so perfect for jumpsuits, dresses and transitional trousers.
Choose your favourite side or use a combination of both as a contrast with these fun reversible cottons. They are more of a lighter weight so before for tops and blouses.
These brushed flannels feel very cosy and warm with brushed finish. Use them for an autumnal shirt or 'shacket' or to line the bodice of a jacket.
These soft and sumptuous chunky corduroys are 100% cotton so best suited for trouser, skirt and dungarees/overall patterns that don't call for stretch.
These stretch corduroys have a little elastane which offers comfort and give, making these stretch corduroys best suited for garments that are more fitted and call for a woven stretch fabric.
Like two fabrics in one, these fur lined bubble corduroys have a lovely 'bubbly' texture and on the reverse have a fluffy fur finish in a cream/off white colour. They would make a perfect shacket or jacket.
These snuggly teddy fleeces feel like a fluffy teddy bear and are stretchy at 90 degrees to the selvedge. Use them on their own for a warm fleece or add them as a lining to make a jacket super cosy!
This little selection of jersey or knitted fabrics are great for warmer garments. Use the linear rib jerseys for fitted long sleeve turtle necks, the ponte romas for a more structured jumpsuit or dress and the wool knits for an over sized cardigan.
These wax cottons have a 'wet' wax finish, meaning they are pretty saturated with wax. They will give off lovely character and texture and they will mould and mark as you work with and use them. For a garment I'd say ones that are lined are best suited, or you could make a lovely bag with them too!
These more medium/lighter weight wools are great for blazers or even winter trousers, with the heavier weight boucle fabrics below best suited to coats or coatigans as the reverse of the fabric looks just as nice as the front!
