Fabulous Needlecord Fabrics for Autumn and Winter Makes

Good quality needlecord fabric is hard to find but we have been so lucky to find five new prints, now in-store and online.

What is needlecord I hear you ask - well basically needlecord fabric has finer ribs than normal corduroy (typically a needlecord has 14 to 18 cords per inch) which means it is a lighter weight, finer looking fabric than normal corduroy. Did you know that the ribs (raised stripes in corduroy) are also called wales? No idea why!

Anyway, what matters is that needlecord is a great fabric for dressmaking with a warm, soft handfeel in a lighter weight fabric. All our needlecords are 100% cotton and 147cm wide.

First up is Harvest Blossom on Fuschia. This has a close pattern repeat and the flower stems are 4cm long.

Then there is the Polka Floral on Blue. This is a lovely bright floral fabric, my personal fave (a couple of metres of this accidently on purpose fell off the bolt and into my growing stash pile!).

Third on the list is Spiral Leaves in various shades. This one has been quite popular in the shop already and I can see why. It is a close pattern that will go well with a number of co-ordinating colours.

Next up is Floral Tile on blue. This has a lovely rich pattern with the floral centres around 2cm wide. I could see this as a lined skirt - it would look fab!

Last, but by no means least, is the Lotus Flower on Brown. This has a larger pattern, the flower is 6.5cm wide.
