We've got ALL the florals!
We've had sooo many floral fabrics arrive this week, it's like a bit like a florists in here!

Our original Chaffinch Bough was a top seller and I'm pretty sure this new cotton lawn in the Old Gold colourway will be just as popular! Imagine a cute blouse in this fabric. Or a dramatic Buchanan dressing gown.

Savannah cotton lawn with its large foliage and cheeky hummingbirds is a big contender for my favourite fabric of the week. I'm currently dreaming of a Helga playsuit to wear on my holiday.  

The bright jade of this Flora Songbird cotton lawn is screaming out another jumpsuit to me, this time the Marigold, how awesome would this be at summer party??

This red lightweight crepe is not one for the wallflowers out there, make a big entrance in an Ansa Butterfly dress in this Scarlet cluster crepe.

Our navy Cindy viscose challis would be wonderful made in to the new Avid Seamstress pattern The Shift Dress.

New Italian Ex Designer Checks & Stripes
I love the nautical feel of these latest Ex designer fabrics that have arrived from Italy. Shades of blue, red and black with crisp white. All on amazing and unusual textured fabrics.



The range of stripes are all classics with a twist from hard to get hold of double woven viscose to bonded jersey these will add a real level of interest to your handmade wardrobe.  Check out my Pinterest Board for lots of stripe inspiration.

(Left to right)

  • Pique Stretch Cotton
  • Stripe Stretch Jacquard
  • Wide Stripe Double Woven Viscose
  • Woven Stripe Bonded Jersey

The pique stretch cotton has just a little bit of stretch and the pique texture gives it a lovely sporty feel. Make a fit and flare dress in this crisp fabric. Jacquard stripe has a beautiful floral jacquard design subtly hiding behind the stripes. This fabric has quite a bit of stretch for a woven and is really soft to touch. You could make a show-stopping fitted wiggle dress in this fabric. Our Double Woven Viscose is a really modern fabric, woven in 2 layers with a Charcoal and white wide striped top layer and a plain ecru backing. I am dreaming of a two piece in this structured fabric, maybe a pair of wide legged cropped trousers and a casual jacket? That would look very cool and worthy of a fashion blogger! The last fabric is a bonded jersey, a soft textured woven stripe with a navy backing and a thin layer of padding in the centre. Perfect for a structured jacket or full skirt, the soft backing means no need to line this fabric.


The 'shopping bag' trend is a big one and has seen all sorts of checks making their way back into our wardrobes. These super soft brushed cottons are quite simply the softest fabrics I have ever handled. Imagine a shirt, pair of loose PJ style trousers or a cute sundress in this super soft fabric.



These checked viscose double crepe fabrics come in red or blue (very limited amounts available) take the checks straight off the catwalk and into your wardrobe. I imagine a really simple shift dress in this thick soft crepe. The viscose makes it super soft but the double layer gives it a little bit of body.

The Kochi Kimono works equally well in a cosy wool to a soft chiffon. I love this soft Linen and viscose mix Inda fabric for a version that is a great transitional seasonal piece.

Nagoya pants are cropped with a wide leg and fitted waist, super flattering and very easy to wear. Make them in this Pure Linen in navy for a classic with a twist. Wear with the white terry Kyoto sweatshirt for casual chic look.


The Kobe Dress made in the Orange Guipure lace would be stunning layered over the Mito dress for a simple elegant evening look, or a swimsuit on the beach for a glamorous cover up.


The Sapporo coat can be made in a thick wool or a light weight fabric for warmer weather, I've chosen this Indigo Woven cotton, it has body and subtle texture, perfect for a light cover up.


Finally, I am so happy when a pattern collection includes accessories, this simple Himeji bag is fully lined and has a neat zip compartment to keep your belongings organised.  In this Cotton Woven Ikat it will be the perfect accessory to your new Sakura wardrobe.
