This week the very much anticipated Outback Wife 150cm wide barkcloth from Cathi Bessell-Browne (Gertrude Made) arrived. This 100% cotton fabric has been printed in Japan on a base cloth that has been back engineered to replicate vintage barkcloth as closely as possible. The stunning hand-painted floral designs have been a labour of love and have taken more than a year to complete.
Inspired by the beautiful floral barkcloth fabrics of the 1940s and 1950s, each detail of this collection has been meticulously and sincerely considered to create a range with an authentic vintage voice.
'till next week, happy sewing
