 Pantone Website


Ladies And Gents: Marsala is 2015's color of the year and it is lovely as ever.
Marsala is a great color for both women and men. It's simple and yet lavish, inviting and plentiful.
This color goes with many skin tones, making it perfect for apparel, accessories, & more! Sophisticated and warm, allow this color to make its way into your life!

For example, in the picture above, she is wearing a Marsala colored lipstick creating a perfect pop of color against her dark Marsala dress. It's sultry and yet subtle. 




This is a great example of how men can wear this color, too! It's classy yet casual. Can be dressed up or dressed down. 2015's color of the year is seriously versatile!




For our returning blog fans/customers, as you know in the above picture is Julie. She sewed this dress out of one of our dark Marsala chevron knits and will be doing a future blog post about it so stay tuned! As you can see, it goes great with her skin tone and can easily be dressed up for any occasion!

Infinity scarves are super easy and quick to make. They are called infinity scarves because they look like a continuous piece of fabric in a tubular form. You can make them in almost any type of knit. Knits come in so many different prints that you can make one for every outfit in your closet. 
Here is what you will need:  - Sewing machine - 1/2 yard of knit fabric (sweater knit, rayon knit, ITY knit, cotton knit, etc) Should also be 58/60" wide.  - Thread to match - Hand sewing needle
