Introducing my new line of fabric from RJR Fabrics, Kyoto. This collection is the third one from my Vintage Made Modern series. I am excited to share a little of the background behind my inspiration for this line.
My grandmother had a love for Japanese art that always inspired me as I grew up. My uncle and his wife were missionaries in Japan and my cousins grew up there. Their home town, Kyoto, is what I named the collection after. I am drawn to the Japanese influence on clothing pattern designs. Asian graphics is a strong theme for apparel sewing and quilting because the motifs are timeless. In selecting the prints for this collection, I made sure to select the types of print that would work well to support our new Indygo Essentials pattern line featuring simple, yet sophisticated silhouette garments. The palette is fashion-friendly with very wearable colors and colors that work well with all seasons.
Here are a few of our top selling Indygo Essentials patterns created in Kyoto fabrics.
I love how the look of the Essentials – Easy Top & Tunic can vary when created in a variety of coordinates from the Kyoto line. Which is your favorite?
