End of Roll Fabrics - 3.0
The idea behind End of Roll is to create gorgeous pieces from otherwise discarded fabrics. Read on to see each fabric and get an idea of why Heidi was drawn to each one currently available in our End of Roll collection.
A first for AL - dabbling in print! It is something Heidi has wanted to do for quite a while, but it has taken time to find one which was not only representative of AL and the clothes we produce, but also a print that wouldn't date quickly.
Back by popular demand (these fabrics were a huge hit in our 2.0 drop), a selection of lightweight ribbed fabrics perfect for layering.
A stretchy sporty fabric, chosen with a particular design in mind. Following feedback we received around our pinny dresses Heidi wanted to try out something a little different....
"I came across three gorgeous colours of this 'crepe' fabric and I just loved the powdery texture. The fabric is very lightweight and thin - think swishy! Perfect for this transitional season"
"Oh my gosh, this is just so warm, soft and lovely! It's like a teddy bear fabric! Although soft, it is medium weight so I knew exactly what I wanted to make as soon as I saw it".
"As we all know I LOVE colour so was immediately drawn to the yellow and red. I then found other colours of the same fabric and so although there was limited amounts of each one, I thought it would be fun to have a garment style with more than one colour option".
"These two colours are Neoprene, which I love because they are very sports luxe. I would actually say these are more Scuba than Neoprene as they are much lighter so perfect for lighter days when you need something to throw on ".
"It was love at first touch!
The silky smooth texture of this fabric meant I just couldn’t walk away from it once I had seen it. It's such a silky fabric that you barely notice it against your skin which makes it feel really lux and special."
"Rib fabric is typically used for the necklines in jumpers. However I am ALL about throwing the rule book out the window when it comes to the uses of fabrics, and so there was no way I was going to let the opportunity to pass to make something cute and fun out of this bright blue fabric. Yes it's chunky, but it is WAY more fun than a neckline!"
"Feather light and super airy – this is one of the most special fabrics I've ever found. It looks like it would be really hot to wear but in reality its really light and airy. It’s also super stretchy so I knew we could do something cute and dressy but still comfy."
