Do You Like “Pink ‘n Plum”?

So, how do you feel about this color combination for fall?  I personally love pink and plum together.  I can appreciate the usual muted (or less intense) fall colors of russet, gold, brown, and pumpkin, but I sure do miss pinks and purples that are hard to find this time of year.  Since plum is a muted color, I think it works rather nicely for this season.

At the end of July I pulled together some early fall-ish feeling fabrics and the color plum is present in a lot of them.  Yay!  I can get inspired here.

Here is my little princess, Gina modeling “Pink ‘n Plum” for you.

      Thanks so very much, Jeanne. I have always loved plum. I remember having a pair of pants in this shade long, long ago. Happy Fall??? No, no, no, not yet. I know we cannot stop the calendar, but it really seems too soon for fall to be only about 5 weeks away. Yikes. I need to move south, way south!

      Hi Cindy,
      That fabric is from the same line as I used for “Pink ‘n Plum”; the roses are tinier on this one though. Thanks for your comment.

    Hi Cindy! Your bolts of fabrics are so pretty with their delicate flowers and the colors are all the colors that I love. Gina is just adorable in this beautiful little ensemble! Her hand knit cardigan is the same pretty pink as the one you knitted for me for my Boneka. I think plum is a perfect color for Spring, Summer and Fall. Plum and pink do go together well.
