New at The Village Haberdashery: Window Dress and Checks Please by Cloud9, new chambrays from Robert Kaufman, the Cashmerette Harrison shirt and more!
Yarn-dyed woven checks and plaids are super popular right now and we’ve just received our selection of Cloud9‘s two new gorgeous versions of these fabrics! Checks Please are tiny checks and Window Dressing are big skinny plaids and they are woven on organic cotton broadcloth, so they work really well for both garment sewing and quilting projects.
Our beautiful selection includes lots of blues with pops of pink, green and grey. They feel amazing to touch and are so much fun to play with! You can find them both in the shop here and we can’t wait to see what you make!
Pretty new printed chambrays from Robert Kaufman are perfect for autumn dressmaking! At 3.92 oz per square metre, These fabrics are light enough to drape and gather yet substantial enough to go unlined in many cases. We just love that southwestern print and the tiny, subtle dot! Find these new Chambray Boulevard Prints here and all of our cotton chambrays here.
Harrison Shirt by Cashmerette
Finally, the answer to your prayers: a fitted button-down shirt that doesn’t gape over curves! The Harrison Shirt is designed with double princess seams for a uniquely curve-friendly fit and all the features of a classic shirt, including a two-piece collar, yoke, and placket, separate button bands, and buttoned cuffs. This pattern looks equally pretty in crisp Oxford cottons at the office or cozy flannels for playing in the snow! You can find the Harrison Shirt in the shop here.
We’ve added this shirt as an option to our November Sew a Woman’s Button Down Shirt class with Rachel Pinheiro so if you’d like to make one but want help with the trickier bits this class is for you!
