Brushed Gold and Pewter Spangle Knit
Brushed Gold and Pewter Spangle Knit

Every holiday season brings with it glitter and glitz.  This year’s metallics are toned down to a very wearable brushed gold or pewter.  See our Spangle knit in The Bistro or Snow Globe in The Back Room for  a quick top or shimmery dress.  Sophisticated event?  Try Mirror Ball.  Looking for a bit of colorful glitz?  Try our Back Room Cocktail which featured metallic blue on a black crinkle ground.

 If you want to say glitz without the glitter, try using a shiny fabric such as Ornament or Coquette. Colors such as red or gray can offer up a shiny feel just by their hue. 

Sewists have so many options to add some shimmer to their wardrobes.  Simply take one of you favorite top patterns and color block with glittery fabrics; add shoulder epaulets of glitter to a solid shiny fabric; make neckbands, wristbands or hipster ties with glittery fabrications.  So many ideas, so little time!  You can do it!
