Printed Scuba Fabric - Sewing Inspiration

I've talked about scuba in the past, if you've never sewn with it, give it a go, it's such a versatile fabric. Here is a link to my Scuba Inspiration Pinterest board.

A Skater dress with a full skirt always looks amazing in scuba fabric, with lots of body you can make a really dramatic dress. This Prism print has the right balance between girlie and tough!

Think scuba is only for dresses and skirts? Well how about a pair of trousers? The Ultimate trousers would look brilliant in this Aztec print scuba. Wear them with a big navy jumper now and swap for a white tee shirt when it gets warmer.

This Retro print scuba has a wonderful vintage feel to it. Sew up a simple Francoise for a modern take on a retro design.

Did Tailoring Make It Into Your 2017 Sewing Plans??

Did you make a resolution to have a go at some tailoring on 2017? If so you will want to pop over to our Wool and suiting section to see some of our newest fabrics.

City is a navy pinstripe stretch suiting fabric. Make the City trousers in this fabric and you will be business ready at all times.


This beautiful quality Charlie wool mix pinstripe would make a really cute skirt like the City Stroll


Banbury cotton twill has a really tactile texture to it. I would love an Albion duffle coat in this fabric.


How amazing would this Lumberjack jacket be in our 100% wool Churchill fabric? 


I am literally dreaming about a long trench coat in the super soft Sandwashed Tencel fabric.

Winter Prints - Back In Stock

Our favourite winter prints are back in stock, there are still 67 days left of winter (sorry for the reminder guys) so there is still plenty of time to sew up some warm treats!

Casablanca Jersey, a Moroccan tile inspired print will remind you of warmer days, make a long sleeved tee shirt to brighten up the remaining days of winter.


Medalione is a fluid woven viscose with a small design. I would love a Keana blouse made in this fabric. A great combination of stylish and comfy, the PJ trend is going nowhere in 2017 so make this now to wear teamed with a pair of jeans and in the spring add a pair of sandals.


Who doesn't adore a Border print? Especially one with these divine roses on it. The Day dress would be so adorable in this print, especially if you lengthened it to below the knee. Plus this pattern has pockets!! Always a winner in my book.


If Vintage florals are your thing, then this olive viscose jersey will be right up your street. I fancy having a go at making some Body suits to layer up with. 

 

Leva is a soft and cozy jacquard ponte roma jersey. Imagine snuggling up in an Esme Cardigan made of this!

Best Sellers - Back In Stock



Hate it when you see the fabric of your dreams only to find out it has sold out??
Don't panic all of these top selling fabrics are now back in stock on our website.

If you follow me on Instagram you will know I am making a beautiful pair of Carolyn pyjamas out of this soft lightweight brushed cotton twill. Chaffinch bough would also look beautiful as a shirt or dress.


These Honey bees in Rose and Grey flew out when we had them in before (See what I did there?) I made a Gathered dress for my daughter in the rose what would you make?



I used this Citie cotton voile to make a Scout Tee I wear it loads. I called the fabric Citie as it reminded me of the Hong Kong high rises I used to see when I went there.


Lines is a cotton poplin with stretch in it. I would LOVE to make a shirt in this fabric, with a massive frill added to bring it fight up to date!


Ican wool mix suiting has subtle blue and black stripe and at only £8 per metre is a real bargain. Make a pair of cigarette pants to see you through to spring.
