....and right now, with the sun beating on London pavements, the line from the song conjures the joys of the English seaside - seagulls, fishing boats, pebbles and sea-pinks. Here are 7 of my favourite fabrics that will bring that all back home once the holidays are over:
Whitby in washed denim on oatmeal 100% linen by Minimoderns
Peony and Sage's Seagulls in storm blue
Another Minimoderns print called Dungeness in emerald, inspired by the wild Kent coast.
Sanderson's print of the huddled cottages of St Ives in Cornwall
St Jude's Deep Sea print in Storm blue
More seagulls, this time from Scion, called simply Flight
And finally, fishing boats from Harlequin, called Sailaway.
