The Nightfall LookBook // Garments & Bags : :

I hope you enjoyed yesterday's peek at some of my favorite Nightfall quilt projects! Today I want to continue showcasing some Nightfall sewing ideas with the spotlight on all the amazing, inspirational garments and bags that were created for the LookBook. These makers have all amazed me with their talents, not just from what each of them has made, but equally with how they all were able to capture the soul of this collection, from the special details of their work to the extraordinary photography!

Nightfall is here!

Art Gallery Fabrics quilting cottons are famous for their unique feel and drape, extending their use far beyond the pillows and quilts I love to make, to being an amazing substrate for all kinds of garment making!

In addition to the twenty Nightfall quilting cottons, are four high quality knits that are perfect for mixing and matching into simple and stylish fashions, in prints chosen from my Nightfall designs that are just perfect for casual tees, sweet dresses, skirts, and more!

My eggplant moon phase print, Lunation in Dark was chosen to be my sole Nightfall Voile. This favorite pattern of mine strikes a balance between powerful and pretty and is printed on the most buttery-soft, gorgeous voile to be used in a full range of sewing projects from wearables to quilts!

For my single canvas Nightfall print we chose my magical forest, Mystical Woods in Solar print. It's subtle & sweet with it's peachy-pink coloring, but sophisticated and fun, too! The scale and more heavy-duty weight of this fabric makes it perfect for bag making, fashion, and home d├ęcor. I'm most excited about the bags!!

Nightfall for Garments!

Below are some stunning examples from the Nightfall LookBook of how these fabrics can be used to create amazing clothing!

Ali Brorsen of Because of Brenna, who specialized in children's clothing, created several truly magical Nightfall dresses using Violet Field Thread patterns and a variety of quilting cottons and knits. You can find direct links for recreating these gorgeous looks throughout the LookBook!

The AGF Studio did an amazing job making adult sized garments using a collection of quilting cottons, knits, and voile for the LookBook! These patterns and photos are so perfectly Nightfall!

Alexis Wright of My Sweet Sunshine always creates amazing, unique handmade clothing. She completely stunned me with the dramatic Bird of Night owl skirt on this Violet Field Threads Madison Maxi Dress! Her littler dresses are so adorable and showcase perfectly the sweeter side of Nightfall.

Katie Skoog of the Simple Life Pattern Company completely outdid herself by creating four different Nightfall looks for my Spring Quilt Market booth and the LookBook, including a detailed herringbone and paper-pieced butterfly bodice for two of these amazing dresses!
