I'm so excited to show you all the new fabrics we have received recently in the shop. In fact there are so many that for the first time I've decided to split this edition of new fabrics into two parts. In this post I'll show you all the lovely new woven fabrics we have and part 2, which is available on the blog and Youtube now, will focus on new stretchy, jersey fabrics!
As always, if you prefer to see the fabrics move around in real life then check out my latest Youtube video!
These lovely embroidered cottons and rainbow dobby spotty fabrics are perfect for getting you in the mood for more summery makes. They are a light-medium weight cotton so perfect for tops, blouses or shirt dresses.
This more contemporary pyramid print is on a viscose linen base so it has a lovely natural texture. The viscose give it beautiful drape and movement and also means less creasing than a 100% linen fabric. It's great for tops, blouses and dresses too.
Pretty Liberty Prints
We've added a few more beautiful classic prints to our Liberty Tana lawn collection - Phoebe, Mitsi and Wiltshire. These new colour-ways are so vibrant and bright.
We also now have the Augusta Linen, which is a cotton/linen mix fabric. It's so light weight and soft with a more textured feel to the lawn. The colours really pop on these as well!
Sturdy cords and drills
Our new range of cotton drills have a heavier weight to them and a lovely defined weave to them. As they are 100% cotton then are perfect for patterns like the Closet Case Patterns Morgan Jeans, the Megan Neilsen Dawn Jeans and Truebias Lander pants.
They'd also be great for skirts and dungaree dresses or overalls.
We've also added the lovely new colours to our popular range of Robert Kaufmann cords - rust, russet and charcoal. These sturdy cords are perfect for skirts like the Pauline Alice Rosari or the Tilly and the Buttons Cleo dungaree dress.
With so many lovely sewing pattern options to make a raincoat now, including the recent release of the Tilly and the Buttons Eden pattern, it's exciting to add to our range of fabrics that are suitable for projects like this.
We've now got 3 colours of a lovely breathable soft shell fabric that is two layers of fabric together. It's nice and light weight so perfect for making a raincoat as the weather gets a little warmer but you can still expect the odd shower!
Another, more usual choice, that I think would make an awesome coat are these polyurethane fabrics that are transparent with a choice of two fun prints. These look great when you use bias binding on the seam allowances around details like pockets and hem to give definition.
New Denim Delights
These gorgeous new non-stretch denims come in a lovely selection of shades, and we even have a glitter one! They are perfect for the and Dawn jeans which are non-stretch patterns.
I used the light blue colour-way to make a pair of high waisted, straight leg Dawn jeans recently and they came out so well and are super comfy to wear. Despite being classes as rigid, that refers more to the weave. The handle of the fabrics is pretty soft and they are wearing in nicely already.
These lighter weight denims have elastane in them, making them have a nice amount of give and stretch recovery. They are great for more fitted styles of trousers as well as skirts like the Tilly and the Buttons Ness skirt.
Cute cotton prints
Finally these really cute Winnie the Pooh prints were too much for me to resist! They would be great for making a patchwork quilt or any baby accessory gifts, or even bunting!
