Fall is finally here! After a long, hot summer we are so excited for cooler temperatures, falling leaves and cozy layers. The arrival of the new season also means it is finally time to reveal our latest fabric collection! After months of planning, we are excited to reveal over 150 new fabrics ready for your fall sewing. Find loads of new cozy sweater knits, unique bottom weights and other fall favorites you are sure to love! To see lots of these new fabrics in action, check out Inside the Hem’s biannual swatch video. Lindsey shares her first impressions of each fabric along with some ideas how to use each one. Be sure to have a pen and paper handy to make a note of your favorites!
In preparation for the fall collection, we scoured our fabric sources selecting fabrics from all over to put together a seasonal collection of designer fabrics. Most of our fabrics are “dead-stock” or designer remnants, so we never know what treasures we will find or how they will work with the colors and trends we are seeing on the runway this season. In the end, we love seeing how it all comes together and to share it with all of you!
Fall is all about rich, warm colors, textures and layers and this season we are loving all the shades of rust, wine and navy. A few of the other stand out trends include camouflage, animal prints, plaids and the color of the season, mustard. You can find these highlighted as Gone Wild, Plaids a Plenty, and Gold Rush under our Latest Trends. Fall outfits also continue to be centered on all different styles of pants. To feature all the the amazing bottom weights we have added, take a look our group called Smarty Pants where you can find some of our favorite indie pants patterns paired with suitable fabrics and hardware.
