January at Eternal Maker

It's time for my monthly visit to Eternal Maker and I've been keeping an eye on Anna's @eternalmaker Instagram feed to track the new arrivals!  I'll kick off with a wonderful fabric and pattern pairing- although this dress style would work in lots of different prints. 

The Frida Dress is from Eternal Maker's own Two Stitches children's pattern line and is a simple dress with pleat details with a generous size range of 6months to 9 year.  This dress has been made in Dashwood's Dachund print from the new Mori fabrics range- I think that particular print is going to be very popular!   A bundle from this range is available here and a kit with the pattern and Dachshund print fabric is here.

A bold blender range has arrived,  Basic Mixoligie by Studio M for Moda.  These are strong colours,- I especially like the teal and navy - and a good variety of simple small geometric prints.   Get a bit of everything with the Jellyroll option, see all the colours available in yardage here.  I've chosen (clockwise from top left): Triangles Navy,  Coins Grey, Spots Navy Teal, Seeds Purple

There are currently 100 fabrics to choose from in the Jersey/Knit fabrics section which is an incredible selection!  I ordered two of the melange jerseys last month and they are superb quality.  They are slightly lightweight than an Kaufman Laguna jersey which is a cotton/lycra t-shirt weight but these are opaque, stretchy and are selling quickly- the darker blue option I ordered has already gone!  Here are Mid Blue and Charcoal ( I chose this one!).  They would work well with clingy style tops as well as classic T shirt styles, leggings and dresses e.g. a maxi version of the Sew Caroline, Out and About Dress.

The Laguna range is a great basic.  Good recovery, mix of plain and marl style colours.   I've made a ballet style Coppelia wrap top in the Heather grey which is much worn by my daughter.  Cherry is on the left and Heather grey is on the right.  These fabrics would be good for the Marianne dress pattern and there are a lot of colour blocking options. 

I'm ending this post with a couple of classic cute and pretty Japanese fabrics from Creative Thursday for Kokka. The Tinies range is a mix of florals and Kawaii cuteness. L to R:  Navy floral , Tiny Hearts in pink, and The Tinies in Grey.

  1. What a darling dress for a little girl, thank you for the link. I have one in mind, a friends child, I can make it for. My Little girl is 21 now, she'll "let" me make her accessories, but not clothes.
