Smell the roses…..

1 Comment

Last week I had to go and get some haberdashery items, so off I go to pop into my favourite fabric store. WOW! The shop floor was covered with the latest delivery of spring fabrics, still all on rolls waiting to be entered into the inventory and put onto the shelves.

What can I say? I was surrounded by the most beautiful and delicious floral fabrics, key word: digital print. Haberdashery was forgotten..I was fabric infatuated and managed to get 1 metre of a new arrival ( to start with).

See for yourself…isn’t it just stunning?


It’s not difficult to be inspired by the detail, colours..and roses.

The outcome – a pretty and very feminine pillbox hat


I think this hat would be great with a plain coloured dress or even a pant suit – plenty of colour options. Perfect for a race day or a wedding!


I still have quite a bit of fabric left, so there will be at least one more hat in that fabric. before I make another trip back to the store. 🙂

By the way: this hat and other READY TO WEAR hats are now available here:
