Perhaps you need a few new pieces for Autumn, perhaps you are looking for a style change and need to put together a new wardrobe for the season or perhaps you already have a full Autumn wardrobe but still find a need for a great new piece or two...or three (however very thin the reason may be, my wife can provide a few choice words about this). No matter the reason you may not know all the appropriate fabrics and patterns that are perfect for this time of year.
Here is a good checklist for all your Autumn clothing needs...or wants.
Beyond clothing, all of these fabrics can very easily be used for the majority of your interior design fabric needs. I have created many a herringbone and houndstooth pillows for my clients. I've also upholstered many a sofa and chair in saxony and shetland tweed, done a few tattersall table skirts and upholstered a gentlemens study in wool flannel.
While this by no means covers the full spectrum of colours or patterns this will certainly get you started. Though not listed here, my favourite Autumn wardrobe fabric is Harris Tweed (expect a post about it next week), my Harris Tweed blazer collection will attest to this...and so will my wife...and so will my very full closet. My second favourite is tartans, which I'll be doing a post about in a couple of weeks. What is your favourite, or new favourite, fabric for the season?
