Its been pretty cold in New York City and warm weather seems so far away. But before you know it, spring will be here. A few days ago I received an email from a potential customer on Etsy asking about colors that would take her into spring. Although it's a personal choice, most people seem to prefer light colors versus dark colors for warm weather.
In any case, her email made me think about my spring collection. I've purchased some new fabric this month with warmer weather in mind. Clockwise from top left corner, cotton duck in slate gray, cotton duck in periwinkle blue, cotton canvas in lilac, cotton twill in khaki, handwoven hemp in a variety of colors, linen in natural, linen in cilantro, cotton duck in olive green, cotton twill in red and cotton twill in true blue. The olive fabric is dark but some customers like the darker tones all year round. Olive also looks awesome with a cream colored applique. See here.
I also did a search online and found the Pantone Fashion Color Report for spring 2009. The report features the top 10 colors for women's fashion for spring 2009. I'll be purchasing more fabric in lots of new colors throughout the upcoming months. I like to purchase smaller quantities so I can keep my work one-of-a-kind. If there are any colors that you would like to see in the Pesky Cat Designs shop let me know. I often create work with customer feedback in mind!
