After months of drawing and sketching and planning and waiting, while the fabric started to pile up high around us, we have finally started to get our new shop shelving units installed this week. Sooo exciting!
We’ve got another big fabric wall to hold wider bolts of fabric along with the new home for our rail of sample garments.
And in the bay window we’ve got a lovely wide area for new window displays with more shelves underneath.
It's great as it means that all the fabric is much easier to see.
With more on the way we have also had lots of new gorgeous fabrics for the Autumn/Winter season including some beautiful wools and wool blends. You can see the full selection in this link. Just click any highlighted text below to see the full pattern or fabric details.
I think they would also look lovely in the Grainline Morris Blazer. The pattern does say that the fabric needs to have a bit of stretch but the weave is quite loose and open in these fabrics and I think they would be lovely. We still have spaces on our 2-day Make the Morris Blazer Workshop with Layla - two dates coming up in October and November for that!
We have expanded our range of cosy colours - I absolutely love this fabric! It’s what I used to make my Seamwork Astoria Sweater and it is the comfiest and cosiest thing to wear ever! It's also perfect for the Grainline Linden Sweater too!
We also have a selection of the new Liberty Tana Lawns for Autumn and Winter. My top picks are Byrne B which reminded me a bit of the classic Strawberry Thief Design but it’s a bit bigger. I’m thinking of a Colette Laurel top for this one. I really liked the shape of the white embroidered laurel I made and the simple design would mean the pattern can really be shown off.
If you need a classic denim skirt to pair with cosy jumpers and cardys over the next few months we have just received this really lovely Feather Bubble Indigo Denim Fabric. It would look great in a Tilly and the Buttons Airelle Skirt!
What sewing plans do you have for Autumn?
