Oh my goodness! My first Stoff and Stil #fabric order arrived today and I am thrilled!
I ordered four fabrics – quite restrained, I thought, and they are some of the most beautiful colours and quality that I have seen.
I first heard about the company from The Fold Line, as Rachel and Kate were invited to go and meet them in Denmark. I could see that it was an amazing experience, so despite my best intentions to not buy any more fabric, I couldn’t resist a quick look at the website (particularly as the Fold Line were offering a discount voucher)
The have a great Moodboard feature which is why the fabrics that I bought are more curated and less random than usual.
I bought some lovely quality pale blue spotted cotton that I intend to make a little wrap skirt for Spring/Summer, the Granville Skirt designed by Wendy Ward, free with Simply Sewing magazine in January.
And there is some yellow fine check seersucker for a little Spring blouse. Ever since I saw ‘Swallows and Amazons’ last year, I have been obsessing with the little vintage blouses that the girls wore. I know they really suit me, so I’m going to make quite a few this year. I have a vintage pattern that I have done a FBA on which now fits like a dream.
Also some lovely navy stretch twill for some sensible trousers. I was thinking of the Sew Over it ultimate trousers, but I would like something a bit looser. Any thoughts?
Then the finest of fine baby needlecord in a gorgeous pale lime green. This is for an A-line skirt, but cut on the bias from an old edition of Burda magazine. I’ve made it already in red and it is one of the most worn things in my wardrobe.
My main challenge now is not going back on the site and buying lots more!
