Well, the new Atelier Brunette sweatshirt fabric collection has not disappointed us! New in this week are these four gorgeous, soft French terry fabrics. Made with 95% cotton and 5% elastane, they are stretchy (30% stretch percentage), ultra soft and easy to sew. With a density of 250g/m2, they are ideal for sewing sweatshirts, trousers and casual dresses for children and adults.

The Atelier Brunette sweatshirt fabrics come in four timeless, cotton variations that are ideal for making everyday clothing. Twinkle Rose is pastel pink with printed abstract, metallic light gold dots. Twinkle Night is midnight blue with printed abstract, metallic gold dots. Dazzle Night is a midnight blue color with printed metallic gold confetti. Last but certainly not least, Twinkle Grey is light grey with printed abstract, metallic pink dots.

Also new this year, and in stock now at Backstitch, is the Atelier Brunette Bye Bye Birdie Navy cotton. Flying white origami printed birds contrast beautifully with this beautiful navy blue fabric. Made of soft, light cotton cambric (similar to lawn), this fabric has a density of 85g/m2 and 140 cm width which makes it very easy to sew. This fabric would be perfect for blouses such as the Sew Liberated Esme Top, I AM Patterns' Hermes Shirt Dress, Fancy Tiger Crafts Sailor Top or Named Clothing's Keana Piped Blouse or Marie Gathered Midi Dress and Blouse.
