I've got another gorgeous new window display to share with you this week! As the days get longer and brighter here in the UK, it's always a nice time to year to freshen up with window display and Jo had done another amazing job of brining together an inspiring range of handmade outfits, framed with fun props and accessories to fill the big bay window in the shop.
Have a virtual look around in my latest Youtube video below or read on for links to the patterns and fabrics featured and start planning your next project!
This gorgeous version of the Joy jacket, made using our smooth drape Tencel twill and lined with a beautiful viscose print, makes the perfect Spring/Summer jacket. It originally featured as one of our Sewing Society kits last year (we still have some available in the maroon colourway in the sale). The pdf pattern itself is available from the Chalk and Notch website and you can make use of our A0 pattern printing service to have it printed.
Worn over a simple Megan Nielsen Rowan tee, made using our Loopback Modal Jersey fabric, this offers a cosier, thicker version of a classic t-shirt/top pattern.
This lovely version of the warp around Peal cardigan from Tilly and the Buttons is a great transitional layering piece. We have made this version in a cotton French Terry loopback jersey fabric and paired it with some classic Closet Core Ginger Jeans.
This lovely, comfy top is a great alternative to the simpler style t-shirt tops when you fancy making something with jersey. The fabric featured in this sample was a past fabric so unfortunately we don't have any available now, but the full gathered sleeves look great in a more drapey fabric like our range of Tencel Modal jerseys and would also work with the loopback jerseys I mentioned above.
We've paired it with a lovely version of the True Bias Emerson Trousers made using our Enzyme Linen. This is a great staple fabric for summer and we are expecting stock of our full range of colours in this popular fabric soon.
This lovely combo of the Marlo cardigan and the Zoey tank top is a great, everyday classic. This version of the Zoey is made with our range of luxuriously soft Derby Tencel Ribbed Jersey fabric, which is available in a large range of colours - perfect for matching to every outfit!
The relaxed, oversized style of the Marlo makes it super comfy and great for layering up. This particular fabric is unfortunately now sold out but we have lots of other alternatives perfect for this versatile pattern. The most similar fabric is our viscose blended knit fabric, which comes in plain and double faced colour-ways. This patterns also works well with sweat shirting fabrics and French Terry fabrics.
As always, Jo had brought the window together with lots of lovely props and accessories. I especially love all the big tissue flowers that really stand out in the window.
