Fabulous fabric finds
I really debated whether to post this (warning blatent self-promotion follows). I was/am concerned about boring you, or worse annoying you, with what is basically a post about my Etsy shop. However, it is no secret that I have a shop and since I do sell fabric, I thought that some of you may be interested.
One of my favourite fabric suppliers is a small textile company, Baan Thai, based in Chiang Mai. Not being overly fond of prints, I find that textured fabrics can add interest to what would otherwise be quite plain garments and this place does lots of nice textured cottons. They have also recently created a remnants section, which I discovered with the lovely Lara. So I snapped up some of the more interesting pieces. The captions are linked and will take you to the shop if you want to know more.
|Black and charcoal textured cotton
This is so lovely and light and sheer. Yes, you’d probably need a lining.
|Black and grey geometric print
My idea of a great print. Not too colourful and very geometric.
|Black shirred cotton
I’ve never actually seen anything like this before. And obviously it isn’t the best to photograph.
|Blue and grey textured cotton
Fabulous muted colours
|Silver grey small seersucker
This actually has been dyed with a bit of a distressed look. They aren’t all creases.
This cotton voile is so vibrant with a great mix of colours.
|Dark red textured cotton
This deep red has a self-check for textural interest.
Large seersucker in summer stripes.
|Lots of spots
This is actually double gauze and the spots are a steel grey/blue.
