June Knit Picks & New Fabric Friday!

We have two classic French Terry fabrics back in stock today!

A gorgeous, stable, medium weight white 'twill like' terry with good 4 way stretch and a smooth hand, great for a pair of white trousers, cool enough for the summer and warm enough for the cooler evenings.

A classic medium weight heather grey and green stripe 100% cotton terry.  This fabric is 183cm wide so you can get loads from just a little!  Great for jumpers, hoodies, dresses and more.

Both these fabrics sold out quickly last time round so be sure to get yours now as these are the last we have! 

Click your favourite below or see all the new Girl Charlee fabrics HERE.
June has come and gone (wow it was a scorcher!). Aswell as record temperatures we saw a record amount of fabulous Girl Charlee makes, so many we may have to do a mid month catch up edition so keep an eye out!  

Keep your pictures coming, we love to see what you're creating with Girl Charlee fabrics! Tag us on Instagram (@girlcharleeuk) or email us your pics (sales@girlcharlee.co.uk)

Check out the beautiful creations below for inspiration for your next project!

Let's hope July keeps it up both in sunny days and amazing Girl Charlee makes!

Tuesday Tutorial: Easy Summer Swing Dress

With good weather finally here, how about sewing up this cool and classy Easy Swing Dress from The Sewing Rabbit? Great for any occasion with a fun colour blocked bodice and full circle skirt, this is sure to become a wardrobe favourite. Jessica takes you every step of the way in drafting your perfectly fitted dress by using a tank top from your closet and a little math. Enjoy!

Jessica's tutorial is incredibly easy to follow because there is a corresponding image to every written step. This is the perfect project to sew up in an afternoon.


Any knit fabrics with a good amount of stretch (i.e. Cotton Lycra, Cotton Jersey or Ponte de Roma) will be perfect for this swing dress. If you decide to colour block the bodice like Jessica did, you only need a 1/2m for the contrast fabric so I recommend shopping through our precut half metres. A few of my picks from the store:
