Seamstress Barbara Bass transforms our bestselling fabrics into modern spring/summer staples

Shop fabric

Summer serves up a fresh wave of sartorial inspiration, with effortless, loose-fitting silhouettes coming to the fore. As the weather shifts, fabrication is key, so we called upon seamstress Barbara Bass to create a collection of seasonal staples from our bestselling Tana Lawn designs. A cotton that behaves like silk, Tana Lawn is cool, breathable and the ideal base for brilliant prints. Follow Bass’s lead and sew your own this season….

“Fashion is shifting nowadays. I think It’s more about creating your own unique style. The general vibe for this season is mixing classic silhouettes with futuristic modern style.”
