417: strikeoffs are here!

Oh, you guys. The fabric looks so good.

And it feels so good!

There are three colorways.

Colorway 1, greens:

I'm kinda crazy for the mix of greens, yellows, orange, gray, cocoa and eggplant.

Colorway 2 is blues:

The blues have some delicious salmon in there.

And of course, Colorway 3 is pinks and oranges with brown:

And cream, butter and olive. (Sounds like dinner!)

I'm so happy to be with Andover! The whole process has been simple, friendly and supportive. I have been waiting a very long time to see these designs on fabric and I couldn't be happier with how they came out.

Wanna know the name of the collection?

Swoon.

xo,

melissa
