Floral heaven...!

A lot of my favourite printed fabrics have a botanical theme.  Flowers and/or leaves, I'm not fussy!
So you can guess I had fun choosing these new ones!  
Beautiful weight and drape, as usual from John Kaldor fabrics.




These two prints are on a polyester base, that has a lovely crepe feel to it.


This Cotton print has a lovely satin finish.


I see this polyester print made up in a drapy kimono!


Added spandex, in this cotton makes it ideal for fitted skirts and dresses.


This cotton lawn will be so light to wear.

Kaffe Fassett Fabrics


We've had our first delivery of fabrics from Kaffe Fassett Studios!
There are designs from Kaffe Fassett, the beautiful Fern print in green and Aboriginal Dots in pink & the wow factor, Can Can girls from Brandon Mably.
The designs are printed on a lovely soft cotton, 112 cms wide & £15.50 per m

After meeting them both at a trade show & listening to a talk on how their designs come about, we were inspired!  So we bought Kaffe's latest book, to take a bit of that inspiration home!!
