Spring Fabrics

Bought these fabrics in John Lewis yesterday:

This floral print is a lightweight cotton, only £5 a metre! Got myself some pink ric rac to match and love the yellow of these buttons I had lying around so will try and get some more. I will use this pattern, I love the asymmetrical buttons and pleats. I was going through my mum's collection of buttons, she has so many! These were my favourites I was considering for the floral fabric.

The spot design is from the Antique Treasures range of fabrics which are very vintage, I will have to get some more! I want to make a blouse with this, but haven't found a pattern yet.

The blue is for a gathered skirt I'll make for my sister, with gold nautical-themed buttons down the front.

I'm currently working on a straight fantail skirt, will get some pictures when it's done!


  1. PRETTY!!!!! Love that first floral especially!

  2. So do I! I hope it turns out well in the form of a dress!

  3. Ooh, you'll have to make sure you show us the dress when you finish it, the fabric suits that type of dress perfectly!
