New shop window featuring Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co for Cotton and Steel
It’s time to show you our new West Hampstead shop window and I’m so excited! The samples (and the fabrics) in this window are some of my all time favourites. I knew we’d do a window all around Les Fleurs by Rifle Paper Co when the collection arrived from Cotton and Steel. We love it and you love it so we wanted to have some fun with it! Read on to find out all about these projects.
Now on to the dresses! We went with all girls for this window. Lots of lovely florals and pretty gathers all around. Kym made all of these garments for the window and she did a great job.
I’m really sorry to say that a lot of these fabrics are totally sold out, but I think there is still loads of inspiration to be found here! When we planned this window we picked fabrics that we still had loads of…but they went fast.
Our lady is wearing a sleeveless Deer and Doe Sureau Dress in Birch in Periwinkle and I am bonkers crazy about it. This is one of my favourite dress patterns and this is one of my favourite fabrics from the collection. You love it too…we’ve gone through three bolts and it’s back on pre-order for October delivery. I can’t wait for this dress to be MINE!
Did you know that you can now purchase Deer and Doe patterns online in our shop? It’s so exciting!
Our littlest is wearing the Oliver + S Butterfly Blouse and Skirt. The blouse is sewn up in Carousel in Pink and the skirt is in Netorious in Anna Peach, one of the new Cotton and Steel Basics designed to coordinate with Les Fleurs.
The top has a sweet ruffle hem and flutter sleeves. We couldn’t resist adding a spotty button on the back.
This skirt is a smart twist on a simple elastic-waist gathered skirt with pleats in the front and a gathered back. Kym’s currently working on a adult-size version for herself!
Our older girl is wearing the Oliver + S Garden Party Dress in Rosa in Navy (sadly sold out but it also comes in lovely Periwinkle and Peach!) with accents in Sprinkle in Anna Blue, the other new Cotton and Steel Basic designed to coordinate with Les Fleurs.
There is something just so darling and old-fashioned about this little dress.
Those little sleeves and button-back details are adorable!
Caroline made that colourful half-square triangle quilt! To make this playmat size, she used a fat eighth of every quilting cotton in the collection (there were 13) plus the new Basics and a mix of the coordinating Kona Cotton Solids.
This packs a lot of colour and pattern, but I think it is so fun. We all have favourite squares.
And of course, Caroline’s signature paw print is on the back!
Finally, that garland! We have had paper flower making supplies in the shop for a couple of months and they are so fun to make. On Friday we took a little craft break in the shop and whipped up a few to use in a paper flower garland for this display. Seemed appropriate for a Les Fleurs window, right?
Caroline took more supplies home and went wild playing with different styles. She used chopsticks for the stems on these! Don’t they look amazing?
This peony style flower is my favourite. She didn’t use a template for this one – she just made it up! Once you figure out how the paper, glue, wire and tape work together, you can totally go freestyle and it pretty much always comes out gorgeous.
So…any favourites from this window? Or do you love it all?
