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:
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- In Theory Zenith in Gold- gorgeous barkcloth fabric from Cloud 9. Great weight for skirts and jackets.
- 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.
- 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!
- Lore- Olympus in Navy by Leah Duncan for Cloud 9. Organic cotton and a folkloric inspired but modern looking design.
- 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.
- Momo, Flying Colours- Raindrops in Sky. Cute mixer style rain print from Momo for Moda.
