Afternoon Delivery from Japan!

Early Summer Order has Arrived!


It seems so long ago since I placed an order with some Japanese manufacturers, I'd kind of forgotten what I'd ordered!!

A cute little print I fell in love with
£11.00 per metre, 100% Cotton, 110cm wide and pattern repeat 15 cm
Gorgeous lace and doily prints on navy blue cotton

£12.00 per metre, 100% Cotton, 110 cm wide and pattern repeat for the doily 8cm and lace 16cm
and finally a collection of prints - spots, lace motifs, flowers and a stripe!

all 100% Cotton, 110 cm wide and £13.50 per metre
So many lovely things in at the moment, must finish my denim skirt and make something a bit prettier!!

Last Week of Butterick Pattern Sale

Just a reminder, the Butterick 40% off Pattern Sale ends this Friday 25th October!

Well, summer may be finally over, rain and wind the order of the day.  I am still refusing to don the tights, a pair of brogues teamed with skirts and dresses, is putting off the moment!
After last week's visit to a Textile fair, I am awaiting deliveries within the fortnight!  More autumnal textures and colours, plus a bit of glam!  A button order has also just been placed, ready for those wintry makes.
The website is ready for an update, after a Sunday of photography with my eldest.  A little hurried at the end, as his friends were waiting with surfboards ready to hit the beach.  Yes, wind is greatly received by some and rain not bothered about!  Just waiting for the photos to be edited and resized, let's hope the wind dies down!

Fabric Delivery!

A Bit of 1920's Splendour!



Beautiful 100% Premium Cotton

£13.50 per metre


I am really excited about these fabrics, Art Gallery Fabrics describe their prints as 100% premium cotton and their tag is "Feel the Difference".  You know what, you can.  They have a real lustre to them and the colours are gorgeous.  I still have the Great Gatsby buzz, being as it's one of my all time favourite books, so this is my fabric homage to
F. Scott Fitzgerald!

New Patterns...

Here is our latest delivery of patterns.  Some more Serendipity Studio dresses and skirt patterns and an infinity scarf from Villa Rosa designs.
Everyone finds the Kay Whitt patterns (Serendipity Studio), so easy to follow.  I've had people use the Emaline skirt pattern, for a first dressmaking project and all have said how pleased they were with the results.
