When I was in LA recently I picked up some fantastic new fabrics for the Cashmerette store. I find that nice printed jerseys are generally the hardest to find, so that’s what I went on the hunt for – and luckily I managed to find quite a few! These jerseys are great for the Appleton Dress, and the stripes would make an awesome Concord T-Shirt – they’re available as kits with or without a pattern, and some of them are also available by the yard
Let’s kick it off with this stonking large-scale abstract painterly jersey
There’s a very limited number of Appleton kits left of this sophisticated black and white jersey
This blue floral on a black background is such a classic. Great for any knit dress!
This is So. Much. Fun. Coral jersey with blue palm leaves! Your next favourite summer dress, for certain.
This small-scale ikat-inspired ITY makes a great Appleton for work.
The last new Appleton kit is this totally classic blue and pink floral jersey. I’ve already made myself a short-sleeve Appleton from it and I can already tell it’s going to be a workhorse of my summer wardrobe.
And, on to the Concord kits! Here’s a really sophisticated lightweight oatmeal and navy stripe.
This grey and cream stripe has great proportions and a lovely hand.
So, what do you think? Do any of these tickle your fancy? And are there any other types of fabrics you’d like to see in the store?

New Jersey in da house!! Oh. Wait. That’s not what you meant, is it? 😉
I love how you have such lovely prints and stripes–especially how the Curvy Sewing Collective just posted about the myths of plus-size dressing, and stripes and prints were included ! You wouldn’t have been collaborating, would you ? 😉
