Fabric Drop – Fantasy Florals
An explosion of colour is bursting out of this weeks first Sew Crafty Fabric drop, its Fantasy Florals, and I tell you what these are my fantasy! They are all semi-sheer, multicoloured and with textures to die for.
First up is an amazing Airtex fabric that has been digitally printed with a colourful floral design, I love the idea of using this for some fun sportswear, along the lines of the Stella McCartney Adidas collab a few years ago, it would also work wonderfully for beach coverups over swimwear.
One of the first fabrics I ever bought for the shop back when I was 21 was almost identical to this, I loved it then and I love it now. A soft stretch mesh with lilac flowers and green foliage, it would make stunning kimonos or used like lace as a decorative layer over a block colour but used shear as sleeves on a dress.
This magical fabric is ivory lace covered in sequins then it has been digitally printed over the top, I mean, special is not even enough!
Last but not least is another digital printed lace, somehow the areas of white space on this print make the colours pop even more. Again a gorgeous choice for sheer statement sleeves, or full skirts with a solid coloured lining.
