I enjoy each Lotta collection and this is no exception, There are some echos of Bella and the first collection and I like the scandinavian dusk style colour palette. These are all quilting cottons and I particularly like this fabric for dresses as well as quilting. It would work beautifully in the Bella Mountains duvet cover I made for Village Haberdashery. There are also canvas fabrics in this collection, perfect for bags, cushions and even curtains or a window blind.
Rashida Coleman-Hale's Tsuru collection has some beautiful prints.
The navy blossom festival floral especially catches my eye. Her next collection Koi, which includes voile is coming into stock soon too.
A little pattern temptation? I love this Sol Hoodie pattern by Jamie Christina- I wear hoodies a lot annd the cut of this with the thumb holes at the cuffs is just what I wear! Please save one for me as I definitely want one of these! I can imagine adapting the pattern to make a pullover hoodie for exercise classes. Gorgeous!
And the newly released Victoria Blazer by By hand London. They name all their patterns after the staff members at By hand London- what a lovely idea! A casual blazer which features some great skills to get under your belt- French seams, darts, lining.
And as for a little knit inspiration? How about a pair of baby pants made with Nani Iro knit (hard to find now I'm afraid but it would work in any knit) . A free pattern at Made by Rae and pants now being worn by baby Harvey. This is a great pattern to dip your toe into knit/jersey fabrics. An old t-shirt would be enough fabric to make a pair of these and try out knit sewing techniques.
