The Shop Is Stocked!



Update: if any of these items are sold out, I can sometimes get more (except the remnants)! Please contact me via etsy or email if you're interested in a particular fabric. 

My experiment in selling fabrics is going very well! I've been working hard to stock my shop well, and I'm very happy with the little collection I've amassed. The idea of the shop is simple: it's all new garment fabrics in retro style prints or weaves.

I got a small amount of the above red mum/ribbon print and it sold like hotcakes so I just restocked with a bunch more. It has a really pretty 40s/feedsack feel to it.

Red Floral and Ribbon Print Cotton
I also got some great remnant cuts that I'm selling by the piece.

Huge Scale Red Rose on Black Cotton Print, 2.25 yard piece
Cotton florals by the bunch.

Cherry Blossom Swiss Dot Cotton

Pink Stretch Floral Cotton

Retro Roses on White Stretch Cotton
A minty-fresh gingham with a fabulous drape.

Mint Green Gingham 


This check and floral knit mesh that I totally want to make another Santa Fe Dress in.

Don't worry, I didn't forget a coordinating knit lining!

There's also my favorite lining for summer in two weights: Medium weight cotton blend siri lining and Lightweight cotton blend siri lining. Both are easy care, breathable, and pair perfectly with warm weather cotton, linen, and silk garment fabrics. Just match the lining weight to your fabric weight.



There's a lot more too: cotton florals (obvs!), silk chiffons, and a couple silk/cotton blends.

Thanks for reading and for your support of the shop!

  2. Sadness!!!! The mint gingham is GONE! lol. I did manage to get some of the adorable orange dot though. So cute!
    Thank you so much! I feel like I live in a sewing black hole out here in Missouri I have to dig for good fabric. My dream is to go to New York to shop the fabric. lol.
    Can't wait for my package to get here.

    1. Sadly, I don't think so unless I find some more by a fluke. I only got that tiny piece--wish I could have bought the bolt!

  5. I used to enjoy your blog so much when you were sewing and sharing your excitement and knowledge. Sigh. Just another vanity project now. The # of comments probably means others feel the same way.

    1. I certainly still write about sewing, goodness! The sales in the shop from readers have definitely reflected that this is something most are interested in, but sorry if it's not your cup of tea.

  6. What a fab selection. Shame I live so far away, it takes too long to ship here. I am an impatient sewer!

    1. No vinegar, just expressing my disappointment. Like I said, I love the sewing posts. Does that make me sour? I don't think so. I thought it was good feedback for the blogger.

      True, though, that I don't have to read it. For two years it was my first blog in the morning; now I check in occasionally.

  9. Wow, your fabrics are amazing! I love those rose fabrics the most. It's so sad that I'm not living in the US.
    Thank you so much for your wonderful blog and the inspiration you give to us!

  11. Ooh mint-green gingham! Sadly all gone already. If you ever have a chance to sell some more garment appropriate gingham, that would be wonderful. I can only ever find very thin, cheap, quilting gingham :(

  12. WOW! It's all so cute! I'm going to have to buy some once I've finished renovating my sewing area!
