We’re eagerly awaiting the arrival of the fall patterns in just a couple of weeks, and in the meantime we’ve been pulling together our fall trunk show, which will be making its way around the country to show off the patterns.
This season we fell in love with Denyse Schmidt’s County Fair collection by Free Spirit. The patterns and colors are fresh and exciting, with a bit of vintage flavor and a contemporary autumnal color palette.
County Fair has a lovely weight that is very appropriate to fall dressing. It’s slightly heavier than a quilting cotton, with a wonderful drape. Although the line is billed as a “home dec” weight, it’s not heavy or stiff like you might imagine. Instead, it’s perfect for little jackets, skirts, and pants. I’m having trouble keeping my hands off the fabrics and wish I could sew all the samples myself, it’s so wonderful.
If you’re a wholesale customer who is interested in hosting the trunk show, please drop us a line. The collection will be ready to go by the end of August, and we’d love to send it your direction!
