Introducing my newest:
New, new, new! I love new. Fresh, crisp, bright. My new fabrics are here! Meadowsweet, inspired by the sweet things you would find, well - in a meadow.
A light and lively collection easily manageable in 30 pieces. We've been getting the word that smaller collections are being sought after because shops don't have to pick and choose. I pitched three color palettes, expecting to cut one, but they all turned out great. So we picked the two that played off each other the best to release right now and the last color collection will come out in a few months after the first two groups have their time to shine. All the prints will appear in the lovely cotton Michael Miller is so well known for as well as a few select prints on corduroy and the new, fabulous cotton lawn. I'm so excited about the cotton lawn! I played with it last week and it is just lovely, perfect for dresses and flowing tops.
SO, here you are - the new bits of color to join fray around here. I hope you enjoy them!
Fluttering Butterflies.. (I've got a dress in the works for myself out of this combo below and I can NOT wait to try it on.. butterflies are so not just for little girls.)
A few words about this skirt- these are not my cute legs, but my sisters. However, I am proud to say that I made this skirt for ME and it's actually a bit too big. Ah, again - sweet. Catch it at market if you're coming!
Also, I've had several requests for downloadable patterns, so we're going to give it a try and this skirt will be the first. We're naming the patterns "Printables" and plan on having this one up for sale soon with more to come. What do you guys think of the idea? The request has been geared more towards wanting our current patterns to be printable, which just isn't really feasible with the size of pattern pieces. I think this will be a good alternative. The Portabellopixie Printables will only be available on my website to download, they will not be printed on paper by us ever. More details soon..
But speaking of printed patterns, here is a quick sneak of some of the ones we're about to send to the printer..
There are more, but I thought I thought this would help with seeing the scale of the new fabric and to whet your appetite for new patterns just a bit.
Also, this is usually where I would give away a few sets of fat quarters, but I have flown through my sample yardage like it was in short supply or something. So, the best I can do right now is a bag of bits and pieces. So let me know what you think, and a nice baggy of my Meadowsweet could be on it's way to you.
