Well, I just realised that I have been keeping some stunning fabric from you. It is in the shop, but it is so lovely, it deserves a special mention.
There is the vibrant range from Kokka that I immediately fell in love with when I saw it the first time…the colours are intense and the design typically Japanese. The texture is also unusual…there are uneven ridges, that give the fabric a more organic, textured feel. It is difficult to explain, but it is the same feel that I love in linen.
To me they are great ‘combination’ fabrics. I can see simple a-line skirts in Denim or Linen with one panel in one of the Kokka fabrics, or a trim on a twirly skirt. It’s the kind of fabric to make a statement with.
On a more delicate note, I have this sweet little fabric in stock, that just speaks of vintage style..
It is lightweight and lovely but with enough body to be perfect for a little dress or skirt for spring….don’t you think?
The other range is from Japan too, but entirely different in its look.
Aren’t these spots just sweet? The fabrics are 55% Linen and 45% Cotton, so they have the organic feel of linen but are light and don’t wrinkle too much. Loveliness…
Once I get my knitting needle out of my machine and replace some missing parts, I will show you what I make out if this fabric goodness. Or you can get yourself some of this loveliness and get sewing…..
Have a wonderful Tuesday. It is lovely and crispy cold in our corner of the world.
