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.

  I've been eyeing the Michael Kors Wool Blend Coatings for some time now.  Fabric Mart had the most gorgeous array of coating colors that I have ever seen!  During COVID stay at home time, I've been letting my gray grow out, and I thought that even though those gorgeous sherbet shades like apricot and apple green would be beautiful, the heathered gray shade would be the most flattering to my gray hair and the most versatile.  Apparently, others thought the same, as the gray is sold out now, but there are still many colors available here:  Coating Category   When I received my fabric, I was just astonished at how soft it was and what a beautiful drape it had.  I searched and searched for the perfect pattern- changing my mind at least a dozen times before I settled on Simplicity 3672.   This is one of the few patterns that only was available in sizes 18-24, and not in smaller sizes.  It is about 10 years old, but there are definitely copies available on the internet.

Made by a Fabricista: Hello Fall

My sewjo has definitely been lacking due to trying to shelter in place. Back in March when we started working/schooling from home my sewjo had a little spike as initially felt like I had a bit of extra time in my day. Sadly, it didn't take too long to lose that extra hour I'd gained due to not commuting. Add to that the fact there's no where to go so when would I wear these makes. Lastly I, like many, have gained weight the last few months (that's not totally Covids fault) and sometimes I hate sewing for a size I'm not so happy with.  Picking up skating helped a bit because I could sew and wear new makes to social distance skate events, but what really kicked me back into high gear was the arrival of fall. Usually summer is my favorite season to sew for, but during this time of staying home cozy loungewear and comfy separates are really speaking to me. So when I was looking for fabrics this month I selected three double knits to make some easy to wear fall looks.  T
