September at Village Haberdashery

We are getting a September burst of heat and summer in the UK - although it is a little patchy, but in the spirit of the last fling of summer which I think is coming next week, I've included a summery dress as well as something with longer sleeves thinking of cooler times coming for this month's Village Haberdashery sponsor post.


From left to right, row by row:
  1. Sew Over it Rosie Dress.  The princess bodice has boned sides for a snug fit and a skirt variation is included with this pattern.  A good fit for the Art Gallery cottons or the Cotton + Steel Checkers if you were feeling a little bolder!
  2. Around the Block, woodblock inspired collection for Cloud 9 from Heather Moore of Skinny Laminx.  Includes a canvas print.
  3. Raindrop Collection: In Bloom in Night by Rashida Coleman-Hale for Cotton + Steel.  My favourite print from Rashida's subtle Raindrop Collection.
  4. Les Fleurs Collection by Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton + Steel.  This collection which includes rayon, lawn and canvas as well as quilting cottons, has proved incredibly popular with a second order already due.  I've bought a few of the quilting cottons, so hard to resist.
  5. Joie de Vivre knits - Paradis in Sweet. Gorgeous painterly blooms from Bari J for Art Gallery on a cotton/spandex blend jersey.
  6. Les Fleurs Collection by Rifle Paper Co. for Cotton + Steel.  This collection which includes rayon, lawn and canvas as well as quilting cottons, has proved incredibly popular with a second order already due.  I've bought a few of the quilting cottons, so hard to resist.
  7. Cotton + Steel Checkers.  A new basics range from Cotton + Steel, yarn dyed ginghams in a range of sizes.  Annie has lots of the smaller ½" colours in stock plus some jumbo 1" and 2.5" checks.  Suitable for clothing and apparel.  Yarn dyed cottons tend to have better drape than printed quilting cottons.  I love them for shirt dresses.
  8. Playground, Amy Sinibaldi for Art Gallery.  Amy's second range for Art Gallery.  A mix of substrates including voile  (which has a clever print which I think works both ways vertically, more ecumenical for dress making) plus a knit.  My favourite is the Hopscotch Jump grid/check which reminds me of a Scrabble board. 
  9. Merchant & Mills Rugby Dress.  A good transitional style with long sleeves, collar, placket and cuffs.  This could easily be shortened to tunic or pullover shirt length.
