As a nation we have a passion for a striped T shirt (along with our French and US cousins) the casual style is timeless (see my breton post for inspiration here)

If you fancy something stripey then we have had some fabulous new striped jersey fabrics arrive recently and here they are..

Raya is a viscose and spandex jersey in a stretchy T shirt weight. Available in yellow, pink or navy this fabric is ideal for simple tops, leggings or pull on dresses. Or how about a draped cardigan to pull on over your summer dresses when it gets a bit chilly? (we do live in England!!) This pattern from MIY Collection is perfect.

Also now in stock is this amazing (designer end of roll) Marin terry jersey. Terry jersey has a looped back and is the perfect summer jersey. use it to make a sweatshirt (my favourite is the Linden from Grainline studio see my versions here)  or a dress like the Coco from Tilly & the buttons or how about a cool pair of shorts like the Alexandria ones from Named.
