La Couturiere - Seasonal Fashion Updates by Rickella

Seasonal Fashion Update: Spring, 1997

This Season's Colors and Prints Breezey, lovely Spring is now upon us. It's time to put our winter garments back into our storage bags. Spring is the "feel good" time of year when we can expand our wardrobes by mixing and matching colors. Believe it or not, olive and lime green are with us again this season. A turtleneck shell from these colors look wonderful with our "power" suits at the office.

This Season's Fabrics The fabrics for Spring are light and free flowing for the outdoors. Gauze and challis are available in beautiful floral prints. For those of us who are a little modest and need some weight to our fabrics can try georgette and light crepe. All these fabrics come in lovely spring-time prints and colors. Look for them in your local shopping malls and fabric stores. Casual days at the office this season are no longer restricted to jeans and slacks. Eye pleasing shift dresses can be casual and comfortable yet give a professional appearance as well.

About the Author

Your author's name is Rickella del Rosario Thomas -- friends call me Kelly -- and I live in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. I learned to sew at a very early age and have tried to keep up with the latest styles. I try not to be too trendy with my garment choices, and will always believe that the "classics", when properly constructed, will last and last. I will make minor updates to my web page once per week; major changes, of course, will take place with the seasonal changes. I hope you enjoy my contribution to the World Wide Web and would love to hear your comments and suggestions at Thank you for dropping in!
