  • Spring Wardrobe Time!

    The sun has been out for a little bit each day, which has meant that although we are still clutching our wool jumpers and thermals for comfort, we are also excited to start wearing lighter layers and adding a pop of colour.

    Our recent delivery of wool cloth, Liberty lawn and silks, and Springtime quilting cottons have whetted our appetites for a wardrobe update. That, and a whopping arrival of new Named Clothing sewing patterns...

    We are now the very satisfied retailers of even more Named patterns, with a refreshment of Papercut Patterns to follow, and styles such the Isla trench coat, Mimosa culottes, Lourdes cropped jacket, Olivia jersey wrap dress and the Asaka kimono offering a plenitude of fabric experimentation, stylish outfits and a really good amount of challenge (aka fun) in making!
