Fringes, Florals, & Pastels Oh My! Your Guide To Spring 2015 Fashion

Spring seems like a far way off but really, it's just around the corner! Before we know it the birds will be singing and flowers will be in bloom. Nature comes to life again this time of year and fashion is taking its cue. This Spring's fashion meets minimalism with retro, folkloric styles. We're talking fringes, 70's Bohemian style dresses and big floral prints. But before we get into all that jazz, I'd like to show you the Spring 2015 Pantone Colors. 


As you can see, there are pastels, neutrals, & darker more simple colors. Pantone's goal was to come up with colors that speak softly, remind us of nature, & provide simple comfort with the everyday hustle while being truly fashionable. If you want to read more about each color and their perfect color pairs, please refer to the Pantone's Fashion Color Report Of Spring 2015  http://www.pantone.com/pages/fcr/?season=spring&year=2015&pid=11



Now let's take a look at some of the trends we will see!

FRINGES
Allow for instantaneous gypsy look


Fringed Komono






BOHO CHIC
Earthy. Lovely. Feminine







FLORALS & PASTELS
Delicate. Spring Inspired.






And Last But Not Least...
MILITARY INSPIRED
Allows for simple yet edgy look









To sum up this Spring's trends, the styles will be simple & fresh. Inspired by nature, these styles will take away the monotony of everyday life. They are easy to replicate and even easier to personalize them to your exact wants and needs. The thing about trends is that they technically aren't "new". Trends come and go, and before you know it they are back again! So get out there & live up the returning styles. Make them your own!

Made by a Fabricista: Summer Sweater Knit

Hello Sewing Friends!  I hope all of you are safe, healthy, and feeling good about life in general.  These are crazy times we are living in!  
As I was debating what to make for my July blog post, I ran across a few garments made from lightweight sweater knits and decided to look through FMs selection.  I found this gorgeous black, white, and gray floral that I made my dress out of.  


It appears to be sold out right now, but here are some other great choices. Sweater knits  I like checking on FMs site on a frequent basis as their selection is updated often. 

I always seem to have my eyes closed in at least one photo!
For this post, however, I knew I wanted a summer, yet trans-seasonal garment since this fabric is just so lovely, soft, and I am such a sucker for floral prints that I wanted to wear this as much as possible.  Do you ever come across fabric and feel the same way?  


I didn't have to do anything special or out of the ordinary with this fabric.  I treated it just as any…

Made by a Fabricista: Maxi Looks for Summer

Happy Saturday All!!   This summer break seems to be flying by so quickly and I only have one month before I return to virtual teaching.  After parent surveys, union, and school board meetings our school district is returning to virtual teaching and learning next month.  The cases in Miami Dade County have surged over the last few weeks and with over 70K cases in the county where I teach, and a growing 300K + cases in Florida, I don’t even know when things will return back to normal due to COVID-19.
I have been heartbroken but the only thing I can appeal to others is to stay safe and wear your mask. I am blessed so far to have no immediate family member affected by this pandemic. It has been a tough year for most of us but I am pretty sure that this too shall pass.
Now let’s get into my summer sewing plans!!  Last month I selected 2 prints: a zebra chevron and an animal print and knew I wanted to make maxi looks for summer. Unfortunately, both challis prints are sold out but there are…
