Fabric Drop – Garden Party


We are at the last of my fabric collections for a few weeks, We have just had two huge deliveries of all the material I bought at Stitches trade show in February, so I have a tonne of work ahead of me photographing and listing all the fabric for the next batch of collections. Garden Party has some stunning fabrics as part of it, three floral feature fabrics and two supporting plains.

This fabric is an unusual colour choice for me, I am not normally drawn to beige tones but I just couldn’t resist this stretch lace. It really reminded me of something I saw in the Zac Posen S/S 18 collection. It is so soft and would be really pretty layered over a lighter or darker lining.

First of the supporting fabrics is another of our fabulously versatile crinkle georgette in olive green.  We have this in a few other colours at the moment and I really want to make something in it, I’m thinking a loose collarless shirt or maybe a maxi skirt?

You can’t go wrong with Peonies for spring can you!? This stretch cotton was sent to me in the wrong colourway but I actually love it more than the original one I chose. This would make amazing pencil dresses, matched with a pretty pink cardi or jacket.

The second supporting fabric is this gorgeously understated khaki green textured jersey. Now, you know I love a textured jersey for its forgiving, flattering nature and I cannot get enough khaki green in my life so this was a winner for me.

Last but not least is this white cornelli net fabric, it will make the perfect summer cover up for everything from holidays to weddings.  On its own or over a coloured lining it will make a gorgeous garment.

That’s it for now, over forty new fabrics to inspire your spring wardrobe. Check out the other collections Loving Lace, Spring Fling or Cosy and Cool.
