February at Village Haberdashery

There seem to be a flurry of floral themed fabric arrivals at Village Haberdashery so I'm starting February's visit with a look at some glorious colours and flowers, starting with Sarah Jane's Sommer range for Michael Miller.


It's hard to pick favourites, it is such a vibrant and uplifting collection of painterly prints.  


L to R: Tulip Tangled in Bloom, Garden in Bloom, Swan in Grass.
Aneela Hooey's first collection for Cloud 9 fabrics, Vignette, is full of florals and includes double gauze as well as quilting cottons.


For dressmakers, the big plus on the double gauze is that the Petal and Floret prints are multi directional which makes fabric usage a bit more economical. 

The newest Cotton+Steel collections have been some of my favourites ever.  I like the way each new set of designs echo something from the last whilst pushing the designs forward.  This is Melody Miller's Fruit Dots range, a delicious mix of themes, colours and prints.


The Bluebird range is amazing too.   I know the Black and White range has been popular but I find the monochrome look a little stark but the blues in all their different shades are stunning. 


Other companies are catching on to the blue trend, Michael Miller have an Indigo range.



Also fresh in the shop are Heather Lou's Closet Case patterns, including the hugely popular Ginger jeans:


These patterns offer a great set of capsule shapes-  Ginger jeans, Nettie top/dress,  Clare coat and Carolyn PJ's- any sew alongs for the styles are included each pattern link!

I've loved looking at all these gorgeous colours!  Enjoy x
