Ah, late summer/early fall. It still looks like summer outside, but the mornings and evenings are getting chillier (at least where I live). This photo seemed to sum up this transition time for me . We still have fresh summer veggies on the vine, but the colors around are getting richer, and I’m starting to think of warmer clothes.
The deep emeralds and rosy pinks are balanced by light and airy prints, and the palette is anchored by a deep charcoal (gray is a gentler alternative to black, easy to wear and so versatile). I’ve included a mix of fabric substrates (corduroy, double gauze, chambray, quilting cotton) and tones. I think the girlier prints would lend themselves nicely to a Playtime Tunic or Hide-and-Seek Dress with contrast yoke. (I made one in the eggplant chambray here last spring, and my daughter wears it often.)
