Characterized as "lace, but scaled-up", Broderie Anglaise is more robust and suited to daytime wear, and less associated with the fine, lacy look of lingerie. Our Broderie anglaise designs are light and airy with designs that make the fabric eye catching but breathable. These fabrics can be used with a lining or without. Check out this blog post where Jess made a summer dress from one of our fabrics. The body is lined but the sleeves aren't - this makes the dress nice and cool in the warm weather. Our white fabrics are the perfect choice for daytime wear, but the black colours are spot on for when you want an outfit that makes an easy transition into evening wear. Take a look at the gorgeous dress that Amanda made here, Broderie Anglaise is popular for Summer wear such as tops, skirts, dresses....but it also works well in childrenswear, bedding, homeware and more.
