Below are several images of fabric that I found that I believe in combination with the right patterns could create wonderful boutique fashions for the tween in your life.

Therefore, if you click on any of these links we gain nothing except the satisfaction that maybe your shopping was made a bit easier. In the future, we may choose a different model, but right now Sew Cool has no commercial ties.The examples in the inspiration outfits had wonderful geometric and ikat prints. I personally love ikat and think it is a trend worth keeping around for a long time. If you think so too, here are some options. Micheal Levine has some really pretty ikat woven fabrics that I thought caught the spirit of some of the outfits in Sally's post.
