Cotton Lawn Fabric

31 Jan

Every bolt of fabric at our shop is hand selected for its design and the quality of the textile, and this new collection is no exception.

We just love fabric design and it inspires us when picking new fabric for the shop. Often when seeing new prints, we envision the delightful projects that will be made when the bolt arrives. We can’t wait to see what you will make from this new fabric arrival.

This 100% cotton lawn collection is not only good-looking, its also a perfect fabric to introduce into your stash if you haven’t already. The stunning silky feel of the fabric works perfectly for all types of projects from a luxurious feeling quilt to sleepwear, and it’s a splendid fabric to pick up if you’re looking ahead to warm weather tank tops, caftans and dresses.

The best part about cotton lawn fabric is that it features the same great properties that mid-weight cottons do, easy to care for and not too tricky to sew, but the more highly refined threads making up a cotton lawn fabric give it a gorgeous silky feel that just can’t be passed up. Plus, cotton lawn fabrics tend to be lightweight with a nice drape.

This new cotton lawn fabric just arrived in the shop, and we have a number of other cotton lawn prints available too. Stop by this weekend to feel this pretty new fabric.

100 Acts of Sewing

12 Jan

100 Acts of Sewing first started as a personal challenge of Sonya Philip to make 100 dresses in one year. Years later, this personal sewing project has grown into a challenge to us all to make more of our wardrobe. And, to inspire sewing, Sonya has designed a number of garment patterns with simple style lines and a modern look.

The 100 Acts of Sewing collection includes everyday patterns for Dresses, Tunics and Shirts and even a simple pair of pants. But our favourite part is the inclusive size range with some designs including XS – 4XL with a bust range from 32 inches to 53 inches.

For this post, we included fabric picks for 3 different patterns. It was easy to select fabrics, as the patterns are so well suited to show off your favourite fabrics. As fabric lovers, we know we won’t be able to stop sewing these great designs once we start!
