Ribbed Cotton Jersey, Cupro Twill and New colours of the Missoni Wool. Perfect Autumn layering

Layering. That is the key to dressing at the moment. When you leave your house in the morning, slightly chilly, but by lunchtime you are heading to the park to eat your sandwiches in the last of this years sun. You need to know you look your best at every layer.
Start with a simple ribbed tee shirt (ribbed and textured fabrics are a BIG trend this year) in an neutral colour. Our new ex designer cotton ribbed jersey is perfect, you choose the style, long sleeved, short sleeved or if you are really daring and have the stomach for it how about cropped? The Lark tee shirt pattern has loads of sleeve and neckline options.
Next add a slip dress or pinafore both the Willow and Phoebe are perfect for this layer. Use a soft drapey fabric like our cupro twill in the perfect Autumn colour palette.  Finally wrap yourself up in a super bright and fun zig zag cardigan or giant shawl using one of our Missoni wools.

This ribbed cotton is the perfect tee shirt fabric. The texture adds a bit of interest to you basics. You could also use it to cuff your sweatshirts and tops.
Available in Olive, Grey and White it is 95% cotton and 5% elastane.






Our Cupro twill is an ex designer fabric and comes in 3 perfectly autumnal shades Olive, Rust and Grey. With the most wonderful soft handle this fabric drapes beautifully.



We have 3 new colours in the Missoni wools Indigo in cool shades of blue, Sky with fresh stripes of colour and Brights a lightweight slinky knit. We also still have a limited amount of stock of the Orange and Green in stock.



Happy sewing xxx
