Passion for Prints


  • Printed fabrics are showing up all over the runway for Fall 2017 and Spring 2018!
  • They can be found in a variety of colors, floral themes, and fiber content. 
  • Let’s take a look at some of the possibilities for adding to your season transitional wardrobe.

Embrace those pre-fall days with cool looks such as Butterick 6308 made with Floral/Stripe Rayon Matte Jersey Knit (Sold Out) or Butterick 6481 with Navy Floral Print Rayon Challis.

Opt for a smashing top (McCalls 7601) or a trendy jumpsuit (Butterick 6320) using Blue Sky or Poppy Red Hummingbird Rayon Jacquard to add to your weekend glam!  


Labor Day is coming and these 2 looks from 1 pattern are a great way to dress up or go causal for the unofficial last weekend of summer.  Use Ecru/Black Palm Leaves Rayon Crepe or Mustard Daisy Rayon Crepe (Sold Out) with Vogue 9253.
 


Go glamorous for a late afternoon lunch or early cocktails with In Vivid Color Cotton Stretch Sateen (Sold Out) and Burda Style 09/2013 #129.


A boho chic vibe is a fun way to step out for evening with McCalls 7350 made with Jasper Red Floral Print Rayon Challis.
