Inspiration: Fall’s Natural Colors in Fashion

Hello, everyone! I’m Palak from the Sewing Rabbit Team, author of the blog Make It Handmade and the brand new – a frugal sewing blog all about sewing on the cheap!

Fall is my favorite season. Living in the south, it’s a brief break between a searingly hot summer, and winter’s biting cold. It’s the time of year where the earth gets to show off it’s true colors before resting at the end of the year. (It also happens to be the time of year I met my husband!)

I have always found that the vibrant colors of Mother Nature provide the perfect palette for inspiration. Below are some of my favorite fall color photographs from around the web, paired with kids fashion found (mostly) in KCW’s Pinterest Boards.

Fall leaves and a bright sky…

There is so much inspiration within the Kids Clothes Week Pinterest Boards…I found myself completely motivated to prepare for the next KCW! I hope this gets you into a fall sewing mood and encourages you to look to mother nature for color pairing ideas.

What is your favorite fall color? Where do you look for fall inspiration?

Thank you for having me, and I do hope to see you at Make It Handmade and Sewistry!  And of course, at The Sewing Rabbit where I hang with the rest of the team each month.

Happy Sewing!

    This totally put me in the mood for fall. I wish the weather where I live would cool down and cooperate. 🙂 Love that A-line dress!
