Spoils of Goldhawk Road

Just a quick post today while i'm waiting for my next natural light photo op...

I thought that I would share some of the fabric which I picked up while in London last weekend. While this trip wasn't dedicated completely to fabric shopping I managed to squeeze in an hour before we somehow ended up spending all afternoon in Harrods ( the Christmas windows were epic and we did loose a good 40 mins to outside the shop....!)

While it is possible to obtain a large number of fabrics here in Glasgow I have never come across wax print cottons. That is not to say they don't exist however I just haven't found them... so without further ado:
All 4 wax prints
 I picked up 4 in total all 6 yards long and rather narrow.

This one said it was Kim Wax and is probably my favourite - no prizes for guessing what I'm planning on making with this one...

 Slightly larger pictures of the other 4:

 I really love the vibrant print of this one and think the blue and pink would make a great party dress.

I'm really looking forward to working with these cottons and hopefully will have used at least one by Christmas :-D
 As I said - just a quick post today. hope you guys are all well and enjoying the week :-)

Take care JCS xx


  1. Gorgeous gorgeous prints - I feel so jealous rigt now!!! I’m looking forward to seeing what you come up with :D

    1. Thanks! Me too to be honest :-S The problem with December is that there are too many things to do so it seems that sewing gets neglected! x

  2. The purple cherries are gorgeous - whar are you going to make with that? Where exactly did it come from?

    1. I have no idea yet to be honest! the thing is when I go to London I grab as many things as I can because its so far away. My current musing is possibly the flora dress however that may require some creative reworking of that fabulous skirt! As to where I picked it up - there is a card receipt in my purse for A to Z fabrics so i'm guessing there but then I got two in one shop and two in another!


I love reading your comments. Please feel free to drop me a wee message :-)
