Fab Fabrics: Athena by Angela Walters
I get very excited when new fabrics make there way to me here at PeachyHQ there is nothing more inspiring then a fresh selection of prints to really give your creative brain a shake up. I mean we’ve all been there, slap bang in the middle of a creative slump and then – whammo – new materials arrive and you are instantly filled with a whole new passion and more ideas for makes than there are hours in the day!
My creative slump has come in the form of wanting to create some new clothes for myself, but not finding the perfect fabrics to team with my fave new sewing patterns. That all changed when I got my hands on this oh-so-wearable collection by Angela Walters!
It’s as though Angela has asked me personally what are my favourite shades of the moment – navy, gold and cream and created a collection just for me! Taking inspiration from classic Greek architecture, these fabrics have a very grown up kind of pretty – the kind of fabrics that will make the dress that you can’t wait to be seen stepping out in!
I can’t see past turning these prints into frocks, tops and accessories to pack out my wardrobe ready for the new season – be sure to check out the check out the Athena LookBook for inspiration for garments by the plenty, quilts, cushions and more!
