I have been paint tiles for a couple of weeks now for a big order, I can finally see the end, so I am back to sewing a fashion. A 40 piece order of bags and scarves, and since it will be fall/winter, a new color palette. I am adding a Autumn Red, as well as the Dark Teal, Chocolate Brown, and a Golden Maize, to my base color group.
I do love the Chambray/Denim Blues with the Reds in this photo, and I do have a group of blue fabrics, maybe a new addition.

I have really been into bold prints lately. I like clean lines and a more modern style overall, but I will always love the prints. And since I am a textile designer, I am always on the lookout for inspiration. It seems like a lot of younger designers tend to go for solids and neutral colors, I was surprised to hear a Project Runway contestant say they had never used prints.
Marimekko has been around for a long time, and are have a great resurgence. The colors a huge prints are so great for fashion as well as home design. The are so mod and colorful but also fresh for today, we all need a little brightness in our stressful world these days..
What do you think? Lets let our real personalities out.

The summer is hot, and fashion is hard in this weather, especially if you are over 25. No short skirt or shorts no halter tops. Since I work at home now, it is easy to let “comfortable” to into frump. I made a couple of things for the show, and now am working on some t-shirt restyles to wear while I work. Your family still sees you everyday.
Recently, I found this great web site “Advanced Style” show casing great creative style from women in NYC. The do have the luck of being in a big city, but I still think everyone should look stylish no matter who or where they are, it keeps you spirits up. My grandmother had great style in rural Kentucky. These ladies are wonderful, I hope I will be this great as the years come on.
