May at Village Haberdashery

May is a time of mixed weather in the UK and I think this is reflected in my monthly choices for one of my sponsors, Village Haberdashery.  Sunshine, flowers, showers- they are all in there along with a range of substrates including bark cloth, dobby cotton, brushed cotton and knit for quilting, crafts and dressmaking.

From left to right:
  1. Greatest Adventure- Clouds in navy, cute print with an outdoors/weather theme- I've mentioned before how rain related prints are very popular this year!  I like the colours in this collection. See related prints here. 
  2. Valencia- Colour play in orange, by Laura Gunn.  Pretty and vibrant water colour print on quilting cotton.  This reminds me of early 1960s dress fabrics. 
  3. Sailor's Dobby- Double dot in navy.  Lightweight cotton dressmaking fabric from Robert Kaufmann.    The dots are woven into the weave.  Love the nautical feel to this and there is a much lighter colourway here
  4. In Theory Zenith in Gold- gorgeous barkcloth fabric from Cloud 9.  Great weight for skirts and jackets.
  5. Cotton Candy Collection by Susan Driscoll for Dashwood Studio.  Delicious colour palette and lively mix of florals and geometrics.  A very strong collection from the dynamic Dashwood Studio.
  6. Succulence cotton/lycra knit by Bonnie Christine for Art Gallery.  See this fabric in a Tilly & the Buttons Agnes top in the Art Gallery look book, page 25!
  7. Lore- Olympus in Navy by Leah Duncan for Cloud 9.  Organic cotton and a folkloric inspired but modern looking design. 
  8. Nani Iro- Fuccra in Rakuen,  Brushed Cotton.  Stunning print from Naomi Ito for Nani Iro on a soft cotton base cloth.  Perfect for lounging clothes or even luxurious pyjamas. 
  9. Momo, Flying Colours- Raindrops in Sky.  Cute mixer style rain print from Momo for Moda.
