Sommer by Sarah Jane

Sarah Jane’s highly anticipated new collection SOMMER is finally hitting the stores. Inspired by her own Scandinavian heritage Sarah Jane's SOMMER collection features florals, folk designs, water colours and oversized checks, which are very fitting with current trends in fashion and interiors.
 
To complement the Sommer collection, Michael Miller and Sarah Jane have worked together to create the ‘softest and most versatile fabric’ – perfect for swaddle blankets yet just as wonderful for quilting, clothing and bedding! Sarah Jane lovingly calls the material ‘Swaddle Fabric’ because she says ‘it’s not like the gauze you’ve purchased in the past’ but Michael Miller are in fact releasing two grades of gauze as part of the collection; Bubble Gauze and Double Gauze.  Bubble Gauze is a beautifully delicate and sheer single ply gauze, whilst the Double Gauze is two layers of gauze woven together on a loose grid.

Quilting with this collection truly is amazing, although the fabric will need a generous seam allowance of at least ½ inch because of fraying in the wash. This is the perfect fabric for slightly larger projects as this comes in a 52 inch width.

Don’t be fooled when you don’t feel that supple softness on the bolt...sew first...wash after!
