The beautiful city of Paris has been home to art and fashion lovers for centuries. Famous artists who hid away in their attic studios throughout the city created many masterpieces we now see in large art galleries around the world. Throughout the centuries this city has been a beacon and compass for our culture. Whether you have had the opportunity to stroll the city streets and climb the Eiffel Tower or not you are sure to love these romantic, Parisian-inspired prints which are perfect for your spring projects.
Fun Time in Paris chronicles a woman and her dog on vacation as they sight-see throughout the city. I love the pen and ink style drawings featured on this fabric along with the soft splashes of water-color that highlight the scenes depicted on the print. This fabric would make a great skirt to pack along for a weekender.
If you love sifting through newspapers and photographs of a bygone era then you will want to pick up this beautiful print. April in Paris, was named after the famous song composed by Vernon Duke with lyrics by E. Y. Harburg in 1932 for a Broadway musical. Photos of famous sites in the city along with beautiful women who called Paris their home are carefully placed within the confines of photo corners. The complimentary sepia-toned background features newsprint and music from the 1930s as well. This cotton laminate fabric would be great for upholstery projects. However, with all the lovely photos of places I dream to travel to I’m thinking of making it into an overnight bag!
Hopeless romantics have flocked to the Eiffel Tower for over one hundred years! In fact, out of all the pay-to-visit monuments in the world this iconic building tops the list as the most popular. It was originally built as a grand entrance for the 1889 World’s Fair and today it is still the tallest building in all of Paris. I must admit I’m rather smitten with the intricacies of the tower’s lattice-work myself. The airy floral sprays featured on this fabric add another dimension of elegance to it; combined with the salmon pink background this print has an almost retro feel. Pick up a few yards of Tower: Pink for making beautiful new curtains for any room in your home that you want to add a touch of old fashion classiness.
