I guess that old adage threes a charm is correct because the Panelled Pinafore is oh-so-close to being ready for testing! After the slightly too big Colour-blocked Pinafore I moved Maia back down to the 5/6 and it's slightly too small. I'm okay with that though, she is genuinely bigger than both my standard 5/6 block and other kids her age so (semi) yay for proving myself right. If you need me I'll be making this dress in the 7/8 because she loves it.
Having two very similar prints mixed makes it hard to notice the seam line but it's got a lovely princess curve.
And this is Maia noticing a spider on the wall, ha. Girl will not be an entomologist.
Fabrics don't look familiar? They're new!
Little Forest and Forest Brown are both gorgeous autumnal prints featuring deer, rabbits, hedgehogs, snails, owls, acorns, flowers, mushrooms, leaves and trees. The colour palette is amazing with golden orangey yellow, bubblegum pink, bright pinky red, and white. And unfortunately they photograph poorly by themselves- the background is a very deep purpley, maroony brown. The garment shots are more accurate for colours.
Also added is Vichy Red, a small scale gingham print in red and white. Lime green plain organic jersey has made a reappearance, and petrol and dark red have been replenished as well. And now we're going to get nuanced! A new organic cotton / lycra blend has arrived in Mustard. It is a fantastic coordinate for almost all of the prints I have with a yellow element. However. It is nearly identical in shade to Sunflower, which I got from the supplier at a time when Mustard was unavailable. Sunflower is currently the only jersey I have without an elastane content, and consequently it less suitable for mixing with my prints. To make things less confusing for customers, I've put Sunflower on sale to clear it out. It is a great organic jersey in its own right, with a lovely drape and a mahoosive 180cm wide width, just not cohesive with the other plain jerseys I offer.
