New Fabrics

I am now back home in England and today I am looking for some fabrics to make some pretty simple skirts for a lovely little girl. I have found some lovely designs and tutorials and need two contrasting fabrics for each skirt. They are for a really simple pattern by Trillium Designs and will end up looking a little like this ...

Quick Skirts For Girls
  Do these colours work together do you think?

Dill Blossoms Lime By Robert Kaufman
Pink Dots By Lecien
I love these two fabrics together ... what do you think?

Dill Blossoms Turquoise By Robert Kaufman
Turquoise Dots By Lecien

These two also really appeal to me. Advice wanted please from all you lovely and clever readers!


  1. I think the colours look great together, really pretty little skirts too...I know my twin grandaughters would love those!

  2. Thank you for your advice ... looking at your blog you have a good eye for colour.

  3. Great choices! I LOVE the Kaufman prints especially! Happy sewing! :D

  4. Hi, thanks. You have good taste so I think these may be OK. Thanks for the advice.

  5. LOVE those Dill blossoms print and they'll be PERFECT for little girls skirts. Can't wait to see them!

  6. Thanks Flossy - hope you are well now. Thanks for your kind comments. Do visit again.

  7. They look fantastic to me, all my favourite colours - I especially like the green-pink combo. PS Why didn't you bring the weather back with you!?

  8. If the sun shines I feel bad about shutting myself away to craft ... so I did you all a favour!
