It's time for Fave Fabric Friday again, and after making a dress for myself in the lovely lightest of cotton, I'm on the search for more pretty dress fabrics. I'm not really a fan of floral prints and generally prefer geometric designs, but Petite Garden in Lawn by Sevenberry for Robert Kaufman Fabrics caught my eye as something feminine without being an over-the-top floral.

So what is lawn? Lawn is a plain weave fabric of very fine thread, creating a very soft, smooth, light-weight fabric. Whilst originally made from linen, it is more common to find cotton or cotton blends nowadays. Petite Garden is a 100% cotton lawn.

Lawn is perfect for sewing blouses, dresses and tunics, although it can be quite sheer, so you may need to line your garment.

I love the subtle print and muted colours of this fabric collection. It's the perfect floral print for someone like me that doesn't like to stand-out too much.

Blue is my favourite colour (well, except for mint green!), so I'll definitely be adding some of the above prints to my fabric stash!
