Spring Fabric Options

Pin It On March 3rd, Sally shared images of current spring fashion trends for pre-teens and then highlighted several patterns that you could use to replicate those looks.  I had never heard of those boutique brands but the clothes looked both lovely and easy to play in.   So, I wanted to see if I could find fabrics of similar types and/or colors that could be used to get similar looks.

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.

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. 

Genuine Handwoven Ikat - ML227910 - Black / White
Genuine Handwoven Ikat - ML228050 - Grey / Yellow

Genuine Handwoven Ikat - ML241955 - Multi is one of my favorite online fabric stores.  As I searched through their new arrivals, I found several prints that I thought would work for the spring.  Here are a couple more subdued prints.

Crepe Georgette Rope Navy

Palos Verdes Organic Voile Wayfarers Orange/Grey

But what I really loved at were all the beautiful floral prints.  Nothing really says spring fashion like a soft floral fabric.

But if your child is more wild and funky, you should check out these fun and wild prints.

And what if your tween would prefer the comfort of knits?  Well, Girl Charlee has some fabulous options.
