April at Village Haberdashery

Finally a bit of sun here in Devon and my thoughts can legitimately turn to dresses, short sleeve tops and warmer weather.  There are some lovely light and bright arrivals at Village Haberdashery this month- Annie makes my job so easy!  Here are my nine top picks for April...



(Items organised in three rows and numbered left to right)

1.  Linen/cotton Herringbone Weave Chambray, wide width at 59" and beautiful for garment making (see 'Skipper' dress below) or an informal bag like the Grainline Stowe

2.  Mendoccino by Heather Ross  has arrived and the Underwater sisters mermaid print is swimming out of the shop (see what I did there ;).  Available in gold, pink on cream, dark pink and plum as well as blue on blush and the other Mendocino prints can be seen here whilst stocks last. 

3.   'Manu Forest' organic cotton voile (44" wide) from the stunning range of Yucca fabrics designed by Leah Duncan for Cloud 9.  Amazing colours. 

4.  Leaping Foxes by Joanne Cocker for Dashwood.  From Fablewood, a promising debut collection with lovely fresh colours.

5.  Merchant & Mills 'The Skipper'.  Classic sailor dress pattern designed for 3-8 year olds. Ideal for chambrays, linens and would also work with Art Gallery cottons  or Cloud 9 Organics as they are both so soft silky to work with. 

6. Rainbows in Aqua from the Flying Colours collection by Momo.  Typical psychedelic style from Momo, I really like the flower power print and the Rainbow Forest from the same range

7. Ladies Night (Metallic).  Irresistible print by Sarah Watts for the Cotton+Steel Black & White 2016 collection.

8.  Lore-Up Above the Clouds in Multi.  More stunning designs from Leah Duncan for Cloud 9, this time from the Lore collection.  If you prefer a quieter print, check out Lore- Fable Forest, a soft subtle design. 

9.  Cotton/Spandex denim- Rushton.  A bit of stretch so maybe this would be good for a pair of Ginger jeans or an Airelle Skirt?
