Bluebell & Brook

Have you heard of Bluebell & Brook?
I hadn't either until last week.  I was spending a random evening browsing the web - I can't even remember exactly what I'd been looking for - when I stumbled upon their website.
They are a small family run company specialising in a selection of fabrics, haberdashery and indie patterns. 
The fabrics in particular attracted my attention, they have some very pretty fabrics in designs I hadn't seen elsewhere, at very reasonable prices. 
Of course, some of it was begging to join my stash.  I was quite restrained and only bought 2 metres of this lovely songbird print satin
and 2 metres of this geometric print jersey, both from the "soft and drapey" section of the website. 
One thing I really like is that they sell fabric by 1/2metre increments, which a lot of online retailers don't do.  I know I ended up with whole metres in this purchase, but sometimes I don't want to have to buy that extra half metre, particularly if the fabric is pricy.  These were very reasonable, and in this case I did want 2 metres of each, but its great to know I can buy by the half metre if I want to.
My order was dispatched really quickly and arrived well packaged, with even a little notecard from Judith, the owner, thanking me for my purchases.  The fabrics themselves are lovely.  Both are very soft and drapey as expected, and the jersey in particular has a wonderful feel to it.  It's going to be delicious made up into a dress for winter.
I'll definitely be shopping with Bluebell & Brook again, there are more fabrics I have my eye on, including this green dogtooth check and this Amy Butler babycord.  Wouldn't they both be great for winter skirts?  I can't believe I'm even thinking about winter when it's as hot as it has been here the last couple of weeks.  Never hurts to be thinking ahead though!
Disclaimer: I received no compensation, financial or otherwise, for this review.  It was written purely because I was impressed with the quality of the service and the fabrics that Bluebell & Brook provided me with.



  1. ooh great spot - i love the prints you have chosen! am tempted to buy some cord for the winter but i must sew through my summer stash first!

  2. Funnily enough, I came across them last week too - there's a lovely version of the new Colette dress on the site. Those fabrics look gorgeous, look forward to seeing what you make.

    1. Actually, yes, that's what I'd been Googling when I came across them.

  3. These are gorgeous prints. Nice spotting Sam.

  4. Great review, Sam. They do have some lovely fabrics here. I particularly like the songbird print that you have chosen and can't wait to see what you make from it.

    1. Thanks Jen. I think it's going to be a blouse of some sort, but I am liable to changing my mind!
