Fabric sightings: clothing!

Thank you to those of you who have kindly reported spotting my fabric designs out and about. Since I license designs to other companies to print, I have no way of knowing which customers buy the finished yardage from them and make it into fabulous things. Like clothing—check out the adorable raincoats by Widgeon Kids at Zappos.

How about bridesmaid dresses? Here's some Outside Oslo in the shape of skirts, spotted in pictures of Molly and Patrick's wedding at Green Wedding Shoes. This photo is courtesy of Jeremy Lawson, a Chicago-area wedding and portrait photographer with an impressive body of work. (Need a photographer? Look him up!)

Jessica Jones said...

Thanks, Katie! Part of me is embarrassed for posts like this because it feels totally self-serving, but dang it, I just get so excited when I see the cool things people make. :)

These are way too awesome. How do you live with your awesomeness?!

Wow, that's so cool!
I love the bridesmaid skirts, what a great idea! Your designs are fabulous. :)

Jessica Jones said...

Sharon, well. It's tough, really. But I try. Heh heh.

Katie said...

You have it in laminate or do they do that as part of their apparel line?

Jessica Jones said...

The raincoat folks must have had it laminated.

ros said...

It's a good job I already have a totally cute raincoat otherwise I would be ripping those off the backs of small children.

You can buy lamination at most chain fabric store. You should be really excited- these are so great!

lp said...

My husband and I were in Newburyport, MA last night and saw some of your fabric made into something cute (can't remember what now--I was just noticing the fabric) in a shop window.

The raincoats are adorable, and the wedding is too awesome. I love the vintage look! That has to be so exciting to see your designs being used in so many exciting ways.

I know a few people in Chicago who have used Jeremy. His work is beautiful!

I saw a commercial on the TV the other day (I think it was for cotton) and I saw fabric on a dress that reminded me of your designs. Don't know if it was or not but would be cool if it was!

Oh wow! That seller has the campers and some of the Leaflet pattern, too. Thanks for the tip!

Dorkys Ramos said...

Oh fun! For both the designs and your stumbling upon your fabrics in this way. It's like a cool scavenger hunt surprise.

How could you NOT smile wearing these sunburst coats in the rain?

These bridemaid dresses are the best. I love yellow and grey. I am so into those colors right now. Wish I was that creative on my wedding!

Didn't think it could get better than the raincoats (and I want one in Adult size)... and then I saw the bridesmaids' dresses. Wow.

Cary said...

Love the raincoats with your fabric. They should make them in adult sizes too!

I love the bridesmaid dress patterns. It looks way better than those usual pastel colour outfits.
