Lauren n Jessi Jung and Sew Liberated Patterns

So much for a relaxing Saturday afternoon making my Summer top!

Even more new fabrics and patterns have arrived and again i've been busy uploading them. This time a new designer to Seamstar (or I should say designers as this is a mother and daughter team) - Lauren and Jessi Jung. Lovely Summery fabrics from the Botany collection - so we just need a bit of Summer now and everything is sorted!

Also several Sew Liberated patterns just added.....

Speaking of patterns I am at least going to make a start today on my Summer top by washing the fabric (I know not actually sewing but at least i'll feel like I've started it!). I am making this lovely pdf pattern from Frog Legs and Ponytails called Amelia (you can check Mindy's lovely shop out here :

I think i've now narrowed fabric choice down to either Alexander Henry's new Caitlin Stripe as I think that will create a funky 70's look;

or Bloom Vine by My Mind's Eye with the Polka Dot as the ties;

and then when Botany arrived I was thrown again as Bramble Vine in Ripple is a really gorgeous turquoise which is my favourite colour.

hmmmmm I think a cup of tea and reflection before I start cutting any fabric.


  1. Beauty fabric Courtney and new patterns too! I'll pop over later to check them all out! I've washed and ironed my fabric to make the schoolhouse tunic - I got some Echino (I think that's how u say it!) Japanese linen fabric with birds on it from fabricworm in the states to make mine!

  2. @Justine
    oooooo i'll wait and see how yours turns out before I start mine. look forward to seeing pics!

  3. I just found your blog and shop. I love it! I'm just about to post a link to your shop on my sewing groups website as we are always looking for modern fabric sites in the UK and they are soo hard to find! Thankyou!
