Designers Create Garments for Amy Butler Trunk Show
Fabric designer Amy Butler is introducing a new collection that's sure to entice fashion sewers who love her signature bohemian style, bright colors, and exuberant prints. With the Alchemy Studio Collection, Amy has launched five new fashion fabric substrates: cotton voile, rayon challis, cotton velveteen, plain-weave linen/cotton blend, and cotton sateen.
Prints created for Alchemy Studio Collection of fashion fabrics are designed to work together and complement each other. The new fabric substrates offer a variety of choices for sewers and lots of potential for projects, from garments to accessories and home décor.
To celebrate Amy's entry into the fashion fabric arena, Rowan Fabric tapped several sewing stars to design a garment collection for a traveling trunk show, including Louise Cutting of Cutting Line Designs, educator Mary Ray, and Linda Lee of The Sewing Workshop, along with Sarai Mitnick of Colette Patterns, author Betz White, Amy Barickman of Indygo Junction, author Cal Patch, Angela Wolf of ABO Apparel, Anne Adams and Liz Johnson of Sew4Home, and author Nicole Smith.
Each designer created a garment or outfit using the Alchemy Studio Collection of fashion fabrics to showcase the fabric collection's designs and versatility for garment sewing. The trunk show has started making its way around the United States so that the fashions can be displayed at various sewing venues to help launch the fabric line.
