Our ever-changing collection of deadstock fabric is one of the things that makes Stonemountain & Daughter so special, and we’re thrilled to share another batch of fabrics with you today. Often called sample cuts or designer ends, deadstock fabric is left over from textile mills and/or the fashion industry. By making use of deadstock, we save it from ending up in the landfill and get to bring these interesting, exclusive fabrics to you! You’ll want to bookmark our deadstock collection and keep exploring, as we’re always adding new fabrics!
 
Last week we shared how to mix and match patterned fabrics from different collections and manufacturers with some fantastic results! If you’re ready for another fun fabric challenge, mixing and matching with great finds from our selection of deadstock fabrics is a perfect next step. Ready to begin your fabric exploration? Let’s get started!

Here we’ve brought together fabrics that share a similar shade of blue. The common color unifies the group, while the patterns and scale add visual interest. We love adding a super bright color like this acid green into the mix to give it a bit of drama—you might choose to use this pop of color for a small detail rather than for a whole garment.

Stripes can be a simple pattern on their own, but pairing them with solids or stripes of different sizes can be a lot of fun! Here we’ve pulled stripes and solids from our collection of deadstock knits. Because all of these knits are similar in weight, it will be easy to combine any of them into one garment if we wish!

Texture can be another way of adding variety to your look. We love the hand of this rayon/linen blend—it has a nice structure for pants, skirts, or shorts. We’ll pair it with a cotton cut-out fabric as a top, with a pretty print viscose camisole underneath.
 
We’re really pushing the palette in this group! We found some fabrics with great pinks and wanted to bring them together. While some of the colors are shared across fabrics, the slight variations in each fabric’s palette keeps this look really interesting! This collection of lightweight fabrics could be a great start for a capsule wardrobe for summertime.

How best to bring patterned fabrics together? There are no hard and fast rules, but we recommend consulting some principles of design as a starting point:

  • It is helpful for coordinating fabrics to share some common colors
  • Coordinating fabrics with patterns of different scale are more visually interesting than patterns of the same scale
  • In addition to varying the scale of patterns, you can vary the types of patterns in your outfit. Try pairing florals with stripes (or florals with plaids, or plaids with stripes) based on these principles
  • These guidelines are merely suggestions! You may find that some of your favorite fabric combinations break one or more of these rules, and that’s definitely ok. Don’t be afraid to experiment!

We know it can be challenging to match fabrics online, so if you’re planning a project and need some assistance, don’t hesitate to reach out! We’re always happy to help with more information about color, scale, or using a specific fabric for a garment pattern. You can send us an email at [email protected] or ask us in person when you visit the shop.
