Spring 2009 Color Trend – Beach Tones

Apr 02, 2009

Zac Posen

Take inspiration from some of the top runway shows and keep it neutral when making your garments this Spring. A palette rich in sandy tones featuring mocha, driftwood, peach, shell, rosedust, and cream is soft and etheral. The mood is a return to nature with light and airy colors. With just a touch of color added to these sandy tones, you can combine these with darker browns or khakis to mix it up. These colors create a clean and feminine look for your latest latest Spring sewing projects. We’d love to see what you can create in this palette! Post them in our Reader’s Closet gallery.

    Does someone know what fabrics were used in this design? It looks like the top jacket is maybe taffeta and what is that "cutout" skirt made of? It looks like some kind of stretch fabric where scissors were used to manually cut out the holes. How would the raw edges be treated then to prevent raveling? Any ideas? would like to use the same idea in a long skirt with a similar jacket top for my wedding. If this skirt fabric is purchased like that then what type fabric is it called and any ideas where one might find it? It's not called eyelash fabric is it? Thanks.
