Spring Fashion Forecast

Sew with warmer days and destinations in mind
Threads #207, Feb./March 2020

This year, spring fashions veer toward loose, breezy silhouettes and oversized garments. Blazers with strong shoulders are carried over from fall in a fresh range of colors and fabrics. Layered looks are more prevalent than ever; designer collections feature sheer layers, creating an airy effect. Functionality is in the forefront, and many garments include prominent, roomy pockets. This season’s aesthetic includes lovely colors and fabrics and combines interesting elements with classic silhouettes.

Taking inspiration from the runway is a great way to get motivated for your spring sewing after the colder months. Discover the spring 2020 Pantone color palette, as well as fabric options based on runway trends. In addition, find a range of resources from past Threads issues you may refer to before and during your sewing. A selection of patterns brings the opportunity to create fashionable garments that suit any lifestyle.

The palette combines traditional colors such as Faded Denim and Coral Pink with bright Orange Peel and Biscay Green. In addition, Pantone has assembled four neutrals, called Classics, that blend well with the 12 colors of the NYFW Color Palette.
