Caitlin and Camelia are two floral mini-collections (within the ongoing Fashionista collection) from Alexander Henry. Well, they’re mini collections featuring maxi prints, or at least, florals that make me think of maxi dresses.Images from Hawthorne Threads.
And while we’re alluding the the Sixties, the Peace Group from Michael Miller is also hitting the shops now. It’s a more literal take on the peace n’ love generation and features this clever doodles-on-notepaper print. First spotted at Fabricworm.
Well, it’s just shaping up to be a 1960s kind of week, isn’t it? Berkeley by Alice Kennedy, according to Kennedy’s guest post on the Fat Quarter Shop’s blog, was inspired by a handmade embroidered dress from the 1960s.
Alice Kennedy also has two (!) other collections out this week — Poppy Lane, which is all about black, white, and red, and includes this cool vintage collage print (above) that you text fabric aficionados will dig. And finally, the uber-cute, Japanese-ish Momo (any relationship to Japanese designer MoMo? I don’t know!). I am utterly charmed by these little anthropomorphic apples (below).
The irresistible Paris Park is another mini-collection from Alexander Henry, featuring reproduction-looking kiddos and kitties (for the latter, Google “Paris Paws”). This is part of their ongoing collection of kids’ prints, called Monkey’s Bizness. (Image from buyfabricsonline.com, which sells Alexander Henry fabrics exclusively. Has anyone ever ordered from them? I’m curious!)
