A few weeks ago Girl Charlee Fabrics UK & Europe sent me an email offering me some fabric to try from their recently launched store. I chose a Azure/cream stripe with half a mind on an Agnes Top - I must have been swayed by the pattern cover picture! The fabric is a good quality lightweight cotton/rayon blend so very drapey and more suited to a looser style so I revisited "She Wears the Pants' and made another version of the cover picture top.
The fabric is a little tricky to handle because of the rayon and stripe matching but ballpoint pins are perfect on fabrics like this. I needed to be very careful not to stretch it out of shape and even then, the cuffs especially looked a little wavy. Washing and pressing seemed to even this out and the resulting top has a fluid feel and is an easy wear on these inbeween grey days that we get so many of in the UK. These are iPhone pics during a family walk on a breezy day so you get the feel of the fabric movement.
Like their USA counterpart, Girl Charlee have a huge number of knit fabrics to choose from and its a family run business with the emphasis on choice and customer service including a rewards scheme. Go take a browse at what they offer!
