I've wanted to get Fiona from Diary of a Chainstitcher to try our fabrics since before we launched Patterns and Plains. I am in awe of someone who produces so many beautiful garments as she does, as well as having a full time job and new puppy.
So I was excited when she agreed to review our Tencel Twill Helsinki. Fiona chose the Sage Green colour and made a fabulous jumpsuit.
This is what she said about the fabric.....
"This is my first project using fabric from Patterns and Plains (which I received in return for a review after receiving some samples of the tencel colour range) and I was very impressed with the customer service, speed of delivery and quality of the fabric."
"The price is very reasonable for an eco-friendly quality fabric and they also offer a thread matching service which is always a plus point when ordering online. It means you can get started right away when the fabric arrives!"
Fiona went on to say....
"Patterns and Plains stock this 'Helsinki' sand-washed twill in seven rich colours (all of which I would happily wear and fit in to my current wardrobe) and also have the 'Trieste' modal, bamboo and tencel blend which I'm tempted to try."
"This is the new sage green colour which I'd say is slightly less green than you might expect, in some lights more of a grey with a hint of green but I absolutely love it!"
