Fabric Drop – Spring Fling
Despite the weather trying to tell us otherwise, Spring is on its way and this weeks fabric collection has some perfect snow day antidotes. Pastel tones and florals for spring…. groundbreaking, I hear you cry, but there is a reason that they are the epitome of this season.
This beautiful bubble satin is anything but 90’s bridesmaid material. It is a soft silky dream, and that texture gives it a sophisticated edge in two of my favourite colours at the moment, Army Green and Dusty Blue. I have a pajama-style shirt planned for this blue and potentially a simple dress in the green.
This Scuba Crepe jersey is the most stunning shade of rose pink, that shade that would suit anybody, and being a jersey, it would be so flattering. A simple skater dress or a long line lightweight jacket would be fantastic.
Is there anything more spring than Blush Crepe de Chine! I loved this so much I bought twice as much as I usually would for the shop because I want to try and re-create a dress from Alexander McQueen and this is the perfect fabric to use. If you can’t be a little selfish when choosing materials to sell in your shop then why do it at all!
This is another catwalk inspired choice, chartreuse was an accent colour that was all over the catwalks in New York and London for spring 2018, and this yummy crepe de chine captured the tone so beautifully. I think this would look stunning under a black lace fabric, or paired with khaki, navy or stone.
This Liberty inspired printed chiffon is dreamy! It was on the top of my buying list because it reminded me so much of an Alice and Olivia floaty 70’s style summer dress. I have an idea for a top with some pretty sleeves or a layered skirt.
Last but not least is this classic ivory crinkle georgette, we have this in a few colours now, and I am looking forward to making a loose everyday open neck shirt with this. I feel it would be something I would wear over and over again, so I am planning on taking my time and using French seams and finishing it carefully so it will last.
I love how these fabrics look together even more than any of the other collections. Something about the tones and how they play together, they speak to me.
