by Esi Hutchinson
Folkwear has just gotten new fabrics in from Merchant & Mills, and already had a great collection of some fine wools -- all that are perfect for fall sewing. Molly and I are super thrilled about these fabrics that Folkwear just purchased. The colors blend so well together and compliment the beautiful hues of fall. I just had to show off some of Folkwear's fall fabric collection in a blog post!
I hope these inspire you to make something beautiful for yourself or a loved one. It's always exciting getting new fabric!
First is this soft cotton and linen blend in a teal and tan gingham. A versatile cloth that is a great alternative to linen. This fabric would be gorgeous for pattern such as 121 Guatemalan Gabacha, 123 Austrian Dirndl, 142 Old Mexico Dress, 210 Armistice Blouse and others.
Then, we have a lovely sky blue and peachy-orange gingham. This Indian cotton is very soft and lightweight and would work great for tops, shirts, and dresses. 271 Sunset Wrap, 117 Croatian Shirt, 107 Afghan Dress, 212 Five Frontier Shirts, 121 Guatemalan Gabacha and more.
We love this fine organic cotton twill that has a soft sanded finish on one side; in a beautiful classic Ecru color. Perfect for patterns like 229 Sailor Pants, 240 Rosie the Riveter, 231 Big Sky Riding Skirt, 230 Model T Duster as well as other pants, skirts and lighter weight coats and jackets. We also have this fabric in two darker shades (Sand and Tan) as well as Brick.
This is a beautiful plaid Indian Cotton in a sweet orange and pale sour blue. This would suit patterns like 131 Tibetan Chupa, 119 Sarouelles, 107 Afghan Dress, 112 Japanese Field Clothing, and 201 Prairie Dress.
I think this great black and white check cotton fabric fits the fall theme of plaid prints in a deep hue. Use it for patterns like 121 Guatemalan Gabacha, 270 Metro Middy, Basics Pinafore, 117 Croatian Shirt, and 222 Vintage Vests.
I love this cotton/linen blend and I can't wait to make a dress from it. It is a soft fabric in a medium to light weight with navy blue and white skinny stripes. A versatile cloth that is a great alternative to linen. It would look beautiful for 102 French Cheesemaker's Smock, Basics Pinafore, 112 Japanese Field Clothing, 123 Austrian Dirndl, 210 Armistice Blouse, 203 Edwardian underthings, and would be suitable for other dresses, tops, shirts, skirts, and loose fitting pants.
