Spring/Summer 2014 Fabric HAUL - Getting a Step Closer

It's time for the big reveal!
Here's all the beautiful fabrics to expect in the upcoming season!

And so here you are, and presented beautifully for your viewing pleasure, everything that we are using for the most part for our dresses this season. It was difficult rounding all this stuff up (as we discussed in our last post, click here to read), but in the end it came through. One fabric is missing however because of a mix up with Fabric.com. They accidentally sent one of our fabrics wrong, but in the courtesy of their friendly Customer Service, they sent us replacement yardage without hesitation, free of shipping charges. However, when they send our replacement yardage, they didn't send enough (a yard when we asked for two). They promptly refunded us for the missing yard thereafter. We had a serious battle with this fabric which in the end, ended up selling out before it could be replaced. Let's just leave that one off until later when we figure out what to do―it'll be our little surprise.



It's so exciting to see almost everything in! The colors coordinate so well and compliment each other. They are balanced and harmonious. It was tricky trying not to use too much of one color. We like pink, but we didn't want all pinky fabrics for this collection; we wanted more green, blue, and a touch of lilac to broaden our color range, also to have a more vivid floral along with a more subdued floral.

When the order came in, we decided to lay out the fabrics to photograph them and to see how everything looked all aligned together. It painted a clear picture of what to expect when all the dresses are complete.

What do you think about our fabric choices and color story? Any feedback you may have is appreciated!

We at Lilith et Adalia couldn't be more excited to get started on everything. Now that the fabrics have been purchased, the technical and tedious process of pattern-making will now begin full throttle. We do all our patterns using slopers, which are templates used to create patterns for garments. Fear not, we will totally take you along for that process, maybe you'd learn a thing or two about what exactly goes into making a little girls dress? It seems easy but mind you, it takes a lot of patience and hard work! But of course, we will share it all with you―look out for process and progress in the upcoming posts!

New posts select Sundays at 12pm! Stay up-to-date!

Thanks for stopping by,

Lilith et Adalia
