Atelier Brunette New Dress Fabric Collection


Atelier Brunette's dress fabric collections are always eagerly anticipated here at Backstitch, and the latest Summer collection has not let us down. The difficult part is choosing which fabric to use first, and on which pattern!! The Atelier Brunette new 'Impression' collection offers an authentic range of timeless prints and colors that are very easy to wear.

The Blossom range is one of Atelier Brunette's latest viscose rayon fabrics, from their "Impression" Couture Collection. The Blossom range comes in three stylish and versatile colour variations to suit all seasons: Shell, Coral and Night. These fabrics are sweet and refreshing with an abstract paint motif. The fabric is soft and drapey, yet thick (140 cm in width and 110 g / m2), and an added bonus is that it is machine washable at 30°C. The fabrics are ideal for sewing dresses and blouses.

Atelier Brunette's Cosmic Chestnut is another new viscose perfect for dresses or tunics.

Also in the latest Atelier Brunette collection is a range of cotton cambric fabrics. This soft yet durable cotton batiste fabric is a pleasure to sew. With a density of 85g/m2 and 140 cm width, the fabrics are comfortable to wear, washable, and excellent for sewing dresses, shirts and other garments. The selection consists of Dash Lime, Tabby, and a Sparkle design in both Sparkle Melba Gold and Sparkle Powder Gold colour variations.
