The new Christmas themed prints are really pretty and offer something more subtly festive with the Betsy print having some twinkling metallic stars printed on them.

These new prints and designs from Atelier Brunette also have some gorgeous new colours. On various different viscose base cloths they all offer a soft drape perfect for elegant blouses and flowing dresses.

New Fabric Godmother Viscose Prints

These new designs are stunning additions to the Fabric Godmother collection and would be perfect for a dress to a special occasion or wedding over the coming months!

On the other end of the garment spectrum...this amazing brushed cotton flannel that is cosy and soft on both sides would be perfect for festive PJ's! Or perhaps a snuggly shirt, or even a lining for a jacket or gilet?
