New Stripes The fresh fabric trend

There is a fresh new trend this summer. The off the shoulder stripe dress. It has the feel of a deconstructed men’s shirt and I love it! I have pulled together a pinterest board for inspiration, take a peek here.

Fancy having a go at your own? You could use my free Bardot top tutorial and lengthen it for a dress (I have done this in a gingham and it is amazing) Find the Free tutorial here.

Here is a selection of our fantastic striped fabrics, which one will you pick?

Luna stripe silk only £10 per metre lightweight pure silk in grey, highlighted with a vibrant coral and lilac stripe, amazing value.
