Three Knit Garments PLUS Girl Charlee Fabrics Giveaway (Europe Only)

***THIS GIVEAWAY IS NOW CLOSED. THANKS FOR ENTERING. CONGRATULATIONS TO VICTORIA***



You know me, I'm a stash buster at heart, but I can't refuse the offer of free fabric when one occurs. Girl Charlee has recently launched a UK and Europe arm of the long-established US company, both of which sell high quality knit fabrics. They emailed me (and probably lots more UK sewing bloggers, let's be honest!) and offered me my choice of fabric in exchange for a review on my blog, so I chanced my arm and suggested a giveaway for my readers as well. 


My Fabric Selection:

Man, the weight of what to choose hung heavy! Seeing as I don't buy new fabric as a rule, the offer of some free stuff is a chance to really fill any holes in my wardrobe. Like many sewers, my stash is full of fun prints, so I felt this was a chance to pick a quality solid coloured fabric to make some decent basics that will bring me closer to a really cohesive clothing selection. You may have read my recent ramblings on and explorations into organic cotton, so my first port of call was to see what they offered in that vein. Nothing really grabbed me from their currently-small selection, plus it was unclear if theirs are GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard) certified (which is what you really want to find out when buying 'organic', IMO). So instead I asked for 2m of this navy Ponte de Roma, and if that was out of stock then some of the red anchor print jersey instead. Never one to shy away from a stereotype, me! Bless them, they sent me both my selections, from which I made three different garments. 


Fabric and Pattern Matching:

I'm going to blog separately about each of these three projects but I'll run through them in brief. First I tackled the printed anchor jersey. The base fabric is quite fine but stable, with very little drape, and I felt a form fitting knit top pattern would be most suitable for these qualities. I used the Bronte top pattern by Jennifer Lauren Vintage and some scraps of red jersey from my stash for the neck bindings. This top is so much fun! I wore it all day yesterday and it received a lot of compliments. Warning: this is an attention seeking fabric!

I always had a cardigan in mind for the Ponte de Roma, as my self-made cardi selection currently consists of only my leopard print Jenna cardi. I took this opportunity to attempt the gathered shoulder version of the Jenna in a solid fabric to make a garment that will hopefully layer well with all my striped jersey tops. The Ponte de Roma is super soft so feels great against the skin. It is very stretchy so I had to adjust the pattern a bit to accommodate for that properly (more on which in the separate blog post to follow). 

Despite making the long sleeved and hip length options of the Jenna (i.e. the most fabric hungry), I was left with enough Ponte to whip up a knit skirt too. I used the knit pencil skirt pattern in the Gertie Sews Vintage Casual book, and I couldn't be happier with the final outcome. The stretchiness of the Ponte is EXACTLY what I want for making a skirt. I can run around in it at playgrounds and playgroups, feel comfy on long train journeys and after eating big dinners, plus it feels lovely if worn with bare legs. 



The Giveaway and How to Enter: 

Girl Charlee are offering one of my blog readers the opportunity to be in the same situation that I was in: to choose 2m of whichever fabric that takes your fancy from their site! All you have to do is browse through their selection and copy the link of whichever you would like to own. Let me know what you've picked and paste that link in a comment at the bottom of this post. PLUS if you aren't sure I can find your email address within two clicks of my mouse, leave your email address in the body of the comment. Email addresses will not be used for anything other than contacting you if you win this giveaway.

It's not a prerequisite for entering, but I also heartily recommend that you follow Girl Charlee on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram to hear about their special offers, new fabrics and so on. They also often share tutorials, guides, patterns, giveaways, etc.

Apologies to readers of this blog who live elsewhere, but this giveaway is for residents of Europe only I'm afraid. When I can, I make my giveaways international (I ended up sending the B*Inspired magazine to New Zealand, BTW), but I'm not making the rules this time, sorry.

Make sure you have commented by midnight GMT on Monday 31st August to enter. Multiple entries will be discounted, as will any entries that do not tell me which item you'd like to win (honestly, you'd be surprised by how many people will no longer be reading this far down the post...). And just to clarify, if you win your choice of fabric, it will be posted to you for free, with absolutely no cost to yourself. On the 1st September I will use a random number generator to select one winner and contact them to get their postal addresses to forward on to Girl Charlee so they can send out the prize. All clear? Good!

Ooh. How nice to see a new fabric supplier. I've read so much about girl charlee so I had a good look. If I were to win my first choice would be the fuschia narro striped ponte, but I love the Aztec prints too. I'm definitely going to buy some!

I'm so chuffed to have a great stretch fabric supplier here in the UK now. I've often visited the U.S. Site and window shopped their lovely selection however, with postage and customs charges, getting fabric from them was a bit cost prohibitive. There are quite a few of their exclusive designs I like but my fave is

Hi Zoe - love the anchor top, it's so you!

I'm not entering the competition btw so please count me out but I also wanted to agree that people totally do not read all the rules.I also say to make sure that your email is in your comment or accessible by your profile yet nearly every time I have a giveaway (lots this year as part of Vintage Pledge!) I have to discount someone because there's no email!

What a great give away. They have some lovely fabrics, I like quite a lot of them, especially the "Nordic" themed fabrics with stags and fair isle. But I also really liked this fabric http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/bird-silhouette-on-white-cotton-jersey-blend-knit-fabric/girl-charlee-p-10870.html?cPath=148 with the birds.

The navy colour of the ponte roma is beautiful. Gosh it was a tough decision but I would choose the grey vintage motorcycle print and make a jumper from it (it would be my first jumper and just ready for the autumn/winter chills!).

Hi!
I never bought fabric on-line, because I like to feel it in my skin to make the decision of buying it.
I know you usualy don't buy new fabric, but how would you manage the online/sensorial information?

And I love this one ;) Thanks for the give-away!

I'd choose http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/deep-forest-cotton-modal-lycra-french-terry-knit-fabric/famous-designer-p-9689.html?cPath=90_106 which I'd use to either make another Linden, or more likely a pair of loungey sewing trousers (Alexandrias, Hudsons or something similar).

Rachel said...

I, too am excited to see that Girl Charlee have a UK/EU site now, having heard so much about them. So many great fabrics to choose from, but I think I would choose this sweater knit:
http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/black-heather-charcoal-stripe-hacci-sweater-knit-fabric-p-11573.html?cPath=90_126
Not sure what I would make - when I buy online with a plan in mind it often changes when I actually hold the fabric!

Oh no! Another place to buy fabulous fabric. Great giveaway - Difficult decision, kept thinking I should go for a stripe or maybe a gingham, but I keep coming back to the little motorbikes, so I'm going to say ....

Great to find a good place for knits and thank you for swinging a giveaway out of it too! I have a bit of a thing for mustard at the moment so would choose http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/mustard-yellow-solid-cotton-spandex-knit-fabric-p-5285.html
but it was a difficult choice, particularly when I saw the moustachio one!

Deb said...

Great giveaway, and fantastic to hear that girlcharlee is now available this side of the pond. I'd choose something stripy, so probably this one: http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/teal-green-heather-grey-half-inch-stripe-cotton-jersey-blend-knit-fabric-p-9074.html?cPath=90_103

I visited Girl Charlee's site fully expecting to pick out some cotton jersey for Papercut Patterns Anima trousers, but I've been utterly seduced by the Blue Red Ikat Ponte de Roma http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/blue-red-ikat-on-white-ponte-de-roma-knit-fabric-p-10553.html?cPath=90_168 which will make the most wonderful Papercut Patterns Saiph dress. Thanks so much for bringing this veritable fabric treasure trove to our attention, Zoe.

Kopernika said...

Hi Zoe,
this is such a great giveaway! I heard wonders about the great quality of Girl Charlie Fabrics, so it is really nice to hear that it will also be available in europe now. I love what you made with the fabrics you got. Really looks like you to me...
I would love to have this sweatshirt knit fabric:
http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/fusion-coral-cotton-jersey-sweatshirt-fleece-knit-fabric-p-9260.html?cPath=90_123
I had some bad experiences with sweatshirt fabrics, because they developed holes near the seams after some wearing and washing. Although I used a stretch needle and a suitable stitch, so it might have been the quality of the fabric. It nearly brought me to tears, because it have been gifts for my loved ones... Maybe I am the lucky winner and can try again. (kleine_grosse at gmx dot de)

My best wishes to you,
Kathrin

Woosterwoo said...

Ooh, so exciting to see a new knit supplier here in Europe! Hopefully I'll be able to source some of the gorgeousness I see on the US blogs I read too :) Being fairly new to sewing with knits I think I would choose the navy ponte de Roma for a pencil skirt to wear for my new teaching assistant job. Thank you for the giveaway!

Jen Barnard said...

I've looked at their US shop before, and loved the fabric, but the p+p has put me off so I'm very glad they've opened a UK shop too. I'd pick this True Red Solid Cotton Spandex Knit Fabric: http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/true-red-solid-cotton-spandex-knit-fabric-p-7353.html?cPath=90_114

Hi! I love the outfits you have made and I'm so excited that Girl Charlee have opened up in the UK, as I've looked at their US website a few times but it's so expensive getting fabric from the States. The fabric I would love is the Rose Red Cotton Jersey Sweatshirt Fleece Knit Fabric (http://www.girlcharlee.co.uk/rose-red-cotton-jersey-sweatshirt-fleece-knit-fabric-p-9254.html?cPath=90_123) as I love to have a go at a making sweatshirt.
