my fabric stash November 2014

CANVAS.

100% Cotton. Sturdy. Good for daily dresses and skirts. Dresses to wear when roaming the fields, climbing trees.
The idea is sleeveless dresses, with a bit of ease. Wearing a longsleeve and woolen tights under it.
Bought to combine into colour blocked dresses. One or two are stretchy canvas. The petrol is heavier than the rest.

LINNENS

For lined and underlined dresses and skirts.

WARM FABRICS

Jacquard, the wool from Dublin, upholstery fabric with butterflies and my woolen handspun and handwoven.
Butterflies is for a skirt, it will need shaping as this fabric is not souple. The other fabrics need various degrees of fortification (the handwoven most of all.) The jacquard can do without lining.

SLIPPERY FABRICS

The mauve I got from Lieneke and petrol silk I bought at a sale.
They need attention when cutting and some fortification to help them maintain a dress shape. And also fraying prevention.

COTTONS

Vlieseline.

LAPJES
