Pantone Spring Colours 2013












It seems like spring has finally sprung, so I thought it appropriate to share the Pantone colours for spring 2013. I'm sure the majority of you are already planning your spring/summer sewing or are least planning your wardrobe for the coming months. I love this time of year, everything is so fresh and new feeling, I'm already beginning to have a bounce in my step!

The colours that Pantone have set aside for spring are evoking especially Lime (tender shoots) and the peachy/orange (nectarine). It's quite nice to see some stronger colours in the mix and the illustration provide some lovely inspiration too.

Each colour has been picked by a designer who has an accompanying illustration and also talks about their inspiration behind the colour and their must haves for spring. You can read more in-depth by clicking here 

What is your 'must have' item for the spring/summer months? What are you planning to make?

  2. I am so excited about these colors. I always steer clear of orange but I'm finding nectarine oddly tempting. Grayed Jade is definitely my favorite from the bunch.

  3. I am a crazy seamstress, usually ... I have one or two projects in mind to do next, but I will not go further because I have a very changeable personality ... I love all this color range you chose for spring ... facing forwards ..
