Resource Library: Fall 2012 Color Trend Forecast

Fall is just around the corner and it's time to work on your fall wardrobe. Being a buyer at Fabric Mart, I need to know what's going on in fashion and what colors are popular. So in a series of posts, you will find out what colors are in and what we have in those colors, fall fashion trends from the runway that are similar to fabrics we have and fashion patterns that go well with trends of the season.

The colors of the season are bright and cheerful to pick up our mood but soft enough that they are not overbearing.

Tangerine Tango is still prominent as the color of the year. If you were to pair any of these colors with it, they somehow "work" together to make an interesting outfit for every person. Try a Tangerine Tango blouse with a French Roast pant for a more traditional color coordinate or an Ultramarine Green dress with a Tangerine Tango necklace for a tribal look that carries over from spring.

The soft hues immediately bring a sense of serenity by just looking at them. I can see sweet blouses in chiffons and charmeuses in these soft, serene colors.

Do you see cute clothes in stores or online and think to yourself "I can make that!"? It happens to me often! I was a pretty big clothing shopper before I began sewing. And though I still buy clothes when I find a great deal, I usually end trying to recreate the outfit instead of buying. That is what happened with this jumpsuit. This black and white jumpsuit leaped out to me when I was scrolling through the gram. If you know me I love black and white, stripes and jumpsuits, so it's no surprise this was love at first sight.When I saw this Be Stripe Back Jumpsuit by Kiomios I immediately thought of McCalls 8047 as the overall shape is similar. I sewed the bottoms straight from the pattern. Yes, I could've added slant pockets like the inspiration photo, but I didn't want to add any bulk. I did however alter the bodice to achieve the looser fit of the RTW outfit. I made the following changes:added 1" at the center foldadded 2" to the hemadded 1.5" to t…

Hey all!  I hope you are all healthy, happy, and sewing!  With this craziness of CoVID, I figured at some point this school year, I will be quarantined due to exposure to the virus.  To get through that time, I decided to make something unbelievably comfortable and also cute.  Right?  Fabric Mart usually has athletic fabric and when I am in the mood to sew it up, I snatch it up!  I've never, ever been disappointed in this fabric selection.  Here is a link so you can explore.  Activewear selectionThis white and pink I used are active wear, not swimwear.  Using swimwear for clothing might drape a little differently, so try it out prior to your full commitment.  In other words, purchase a bit extra and make a muslin.  It helps!  Let's start with the white top.  It is a very simple design, and I've used this style/pattern numerous times and I knew it would fit.  Because the fabric is so stretchy I used SewkeysE tape at the shoulders, necklines, and hemlines.  My serger made q…
