I feel so with it now. A recent bundle purchase included a red rose on black background ponte knit, which I promptly made into a tunic with a back cutout – OMG, I am never in step with fashion…until now! Great collection, thank you!


That’s cool, actually. I, on the other hand, dislike this stuff so much I went out to buy some things today and couldn’t find ONE PIECE I liked….
well, thankfully I can sew and am not a slave to trends.


I’ve got a rayon challis with a floral pattern and a black background in my stash! Looks like I’d better come up with something cute to make with it so I can embrace the trend! : )
Loving these dark florals, they’re so pretty!


I love fabric posts! Beautiful finds! I find it very helpful to see silhouette and fabric pairings. Thanks for some inspiration.


I *LOVE* these fabrics! I often shy away from florals because they typically are on a pale (particularly pastel) background; just not my style. I hope to see some bold florals on a navy or gray background as an alternative to black.


I have seen the dresses over the past year and I can not begin to tell you how bad I want a good six yards of a chiffon or goregette to make some of the dresses I have seen. Sadly, if I can find the preferred “fiber” it is sold out or only has limited yardage. The other obstacle has been price point!! Some of these lovelies are upwards of $50 to $80 a yard if I can find what I am invisoning. Just thins week I purchased a lovely black with peach flowers in a 56″ Chiffon/6 yards. I am a tall curvy girl and I want that flowing skirt. Here I go… : )


What a beautiful selection of fabric! I love all of them


I’ve always loved vintage florals and especially love the drama against black. I like the analogy of going from winter to spring. Definitely peaked my interest!
