January is just coming to an end and signs of spring have been popping up everywhere, especially in the fashion world. When the weather gets near fifty thoughts of spring fill my mind. Earlier this month I talked about some fun sewing challenges in the blog world, but there is one that has me hooked. Colette Patterns is having a Spring Palette Challenge. I have been so excited about this challenge and have been looking at some amazing spring pieces for inspiration. I decided to put together my own spring palette inspired from these runway pieces found on Elle.
I am so in love with the spring 2011 collections here are a few of my favorites: Fendi (photos 1-4) the colors are awesome! Junya Watanabe (5-6) I love the name and always love navy and cream, chevron stripes and sheer fabric. D&G (7) is so much fun. I love the use of gingham especially the large checks! And Rebecca Taylor (8-9) just makes me melt. I love her palette and romantic pieces. The color samples are form Rit. A the cool thing about Rit Dye is you can mix them to make the exact shade you are dreaming of.
Stay tuned next week when I pull together a couple of patterns or ideas of what I am going to make for the Spring Palette Challenge. What are some of your spring inspirations?
Have a wonderful Friday!
