kcw oct 2015: color inspiration

Hi all! This is Jess [from gracious threads] here, sharing with you today some colour inspiration for your fall Kid’s Clothes Week sewing! {And yes, that is the correct spelling for colour, north of the 49th parallel anyways!}

Every season the Pantone Color Institute makes a prediction about which colours will be popular in the upcoming months. I’ve taken a few of the colours they chose for fall 2015, and created two colour palettes.

These outfits use some, or all, of the colours above:


1. suit and shorts from Milk Magazine 2. top and leggings by Persnickety 3. dress by Muku 

The next colour palette repeats the gray, but creates a whole different look with the blue and yellow.

I especially love this colour combination on boys, but it can work equally well for the girl in your life!


1. Sweater and cords from Milk Magazine 2. baby outfit from Kalinka Kid 3. Tee and jeans from Persnickety 

Finally, the Kid’s Clothes Week palette is just so perfect for fall that I found some inspirational outfits in these colours too:

1. coat and scarf from Vivi & Oli 2. bright summer outfits by Elias & Grace 3. orange and black striped tee from Zulily 

So which of these colours jump out at you? Any you plan to use in your KCW sewing?

    Love the paletts you created! Can’t wait to see what they become and to use them for myself!

    Too many lovely ideas here – I’m completely obsessed with the blue / grey / yellow pallete!
