Skirtfixation x Art Gallery Fabrics {Pantone Party 2021}

 It's party time...Pantone Party, that is!  Today I am kicking off this delightful Illuminating Yellow and Ultimate Gray party.  To tell the truth, I've seen some sneak peeks from the other designers, and I'm glad to go first before I lose my nerve about not measuring up!!


I got to play with yellow and gray Art Gallery Fabrics to create my looks inspired by the current Prairie trend.  Do you want to know a secret?  My teenage daughters convinced me to go with this theme even though I was quite nervous it wouldn't fit with an ultra modern themed 2021 Pantone Party!  


For my daughter, I sewed:

Novella Pinafore sewn with Soda Straws canvas fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics.

An Aurora Raglan sewn using two solid Art Gallery Fabric knits; Tin Tint for the main body, and Graphite for the sleeves and neckband.  The ties are made with Bloom Wild Magnolia Zest cotton fabric.

To top it all off, I used the Moto Jacket pattern to create a quilted jacket from Art Gallery Fabric Charcoal Powder denim, with Tin Tint knit fabric sleeves.  Magnolia Zest fabric is the lining of this quilted moto jacket.  The back holds a surprise, and is my favorite part!  Please head over to my post at Skirt Fixation to see! 


For my son I sewed:

Fell & Dale cap in Art Gallery Fabric Charcoal Powder denim.

Thyme Shirt made using Art Gallery Fabrics Canary cotton fabric.  

Some Morocco Pants using both Wicked Sky and Charcoal Powder denim fabrics.

Tucked under his chin sits a bowtie made using Wicked Sky denim fabric from Art Gallery Fabrics.


For my youngest daughter I sewed: 

A dramatic Odeline Dress made up from Cactus Bloom Moonlight rayon by Art Gallery Fabric with a Canary cotton ruffle at the neck.


For my youngest son I sewed:

Journal Jumpsuit using Buck Forest Moonstone Art Gallery Fabric knit fabric.  The pop of yellow trim on the kangaroo pocket, placket and hood are Art Gallery Fabrics Canary cotton fabric. 

What do you think?  Modern trend or last century?  Please check out lots more photos and details on my post at Skirt Fixation.
