We are so excited by these gorgeous new tropical cotton lawn fabrics by British design house Lady McElroy! Perfect for your next dressmaking project, these cotton lawns are super soft and drapey.

Tropical fabrics by Lady McElroy

This Rushland Heron cotton lawn is just ridiculously beautiful, and would make a stunning dress or skirt.

We also love the the lush tropical leaves of this Foliage Canopy design. We think it would make a rather amazing Closet Case Patterns Charlie Caftan (which we have back in stock, yay)!

The stunning Savannah cotton lawn features hummingbirds and palm leaves, including our favourite Monstera leaves!
