Fall Into Autumn

By 9th September 2016News

sept8We thought we’d share the Fabrix September Catwalk window with you before the month turns into double figures!

We have chosen an autumnal theme using some lovely seasonal fabrics and colours to bring out the best of this time of year.


I love the beetle print on this asymmetric top (pictured right). It’s a cotton & elastane jersey  from John Louden (150cms wide, £13.50 metre). I’ve made this particular top a few times and it’s a Newlook pattern, 6415.


The skirt in this picture (left) s made from a Newlook pattern again, 6418. Once more, it’s got an asymmetric hemline and drapes nicely in the viscose print used. This is another John Louden fabric, available in 2 colourways (see below) and is 140cms wide/55″ and £7.99 metre.

The cardigan with the viscose skirt is knitted in a Sirdar Harrap Tweed chunky (pattern 7853). This is a new yarn from Sirdar and follows on from the success of their Harrap Tweed DK that was launched last year. Incidentally, they’ve added some lovely new colours to the DK range for this year.


You may notice that I’ve added a cheeky little piece of the beetle print jersey into the front yoke of this ponte roma dress here, it toned so well with the teal colour. Again, I’ve used a Newlook pattern, 6429. We carry a selection of ponte roma jerseys, some are pictured below, and they start at around £8.99 (150 cms/ 60″ wide).

I hope you enjoy, and you find some inspiration, from the selection we’ve made for September. I’m thinking of making some jackets and coats for the October window to show off some of our beautiful new wool blend suitings. I’ve selected the patterns already, just got to start them now!


Two colour ways in the viscose print as used on the skirt above
