Here are some of the gorgeous fabrics I have been buying up big in lately. Should see me through for ooh, say the next few months…
Stocking up on basics: these two photos are of fabrics I bought in the after-xmass sales. They are all ‘ribstop’ cottons except for the black (far left), which is a soft fall linen-cotton mix. Having worked with ribstop before, I love it. Hard-wearing, reasonably crease-resistant, yet light, and fairly cool to wear.
These three gorgeous fabrics are my christmas present from my mother. 1.2 m each (enough for a blouse or skirt) of these three craft cottons from the wonderful Dragonfly Fabrics.
More after-xmass sale fabrics.
Left: The two stripes (the pink is barely in the picture, bottom-middle) have the stretch running opposite to each other. The pink has horizontal stripes, the mint has vertical. The plain pink is ‘seaspray’ cotton-lycra. I love seaspray – heavy t-shirt weight, has a high sun protection factor, and wears well, so when I see it on special in a nice colour I nab some. The apricot is a gorgeous soft rayon-lycra knit. Mmmm!
Right: the label said this was ‘seaspray’ cotton-lycra, but it is a lot softer than the usual seaspray stuff. Hmm…. Anyway, I bought this today because I realised if I only got ooooh, say, another 40cm of another colour, combined with the leftovers of my warm pyjamas(‘seaspray’ in lemony-lime) I could have even more fun mixing and matching up knits in t-shirts than I have done so far (having cut a few of them out already).
