New interlock knits in stripes and solids!

Our favourite supplier of organic cotton interlock knits has released new colours and they are just what you’ve been asking us for! We have new navy, black, red and grey stripes, plus new solid red and navy.

These are thicker, more substantial knits and they are a soft 100% organic cotton with a lot of stretch. They are great for dresses and tops – we see so many of you pairing these with the Tilly and the Buttons Coco pattern and the Grainline Linden Sweatshirt pattern, to name two great options.

You can find all of these, plus the new navy and black sweatshirt knits we showed you last week and the coordinating ribbing, in the shop here.

Polka dot linen

This eye-catching cotton/linen blend fabric is so much fun for summer garment sewing! The big cobalt blue polka dots pop on the crisp white fabric and it will be so much fun for dresses, skirts, trousers and jackets. A great choice for lining this fabric is our feather-light white cotton/silk voile. Find the linen in the shop here.

We have three new lightweight printed cotton denims that are so cute for dresses, skirts, trousers and children’s garments! There are these fun little anchors and two pretty floral prints. These denims are perfect for garments that don’t require a stiff or stretchy denim. Find them in the shop here.

Chunky metallic zips

We found the coolest zips ever! These zips come in gold, silver and metallic black with gold metal and we have them in three lengths (15cm, 20cm and 40cm). Put an exposed zip down the back of your dress, create a feature in a top like the Tilly and the Buttons Orla, or use them in a fabulous zip pouch! Find these zips in the shop here.
