Classic and retro all in the same glance. The new Tuxedo Collection by Doodlebug Designs has an air of sophistication about it! 

I love the mix of pretty greys into the style and of course with all those delicious dots it was definitely  love at first sight!

And the stripes are a great "Man" fabric but work incredibly well with the collection too

And then this Damask has crept in, it is a close call with the spots, but I think it is my favourite

Then the flowers make an excellent bouquet. I feel like whipping up some cushions just staring at these! 


Available in bundles & individually right here
