🪡 ✨Addie, Cloud, Nova, Pax and the other Fibre Mood newcomers are already eager to introduce themselves to you! ✨
A jumpsuit mixes style and comfort, making it a must-have in any wardrobe. Addie adds an exotic touch with its cropped, roomy grown on sleeves. Your waist is elegantly cinched: the straps seem to visually start from the front and wrap around the jumpsuit as much as you like. Even more freedom of choice: both the sleeves and the trousers can be made longer or just shorter according to your taste.
Fabric recommendations: Depending on the desired effect, choose a supple fabric that has a lovely drape, or something with a bit more body. If you would like a more drapy silhouette, go for viscose (crepe), chambray, crepon, satin or a woollen fabric. Semi-soft lyocell, seersucker is also a nice option. Prefer a sharper silhouette? Then choose poplin or twill cotton.
An elegant autumn favourite: this shirt dress plays with contrasts. On the one hand, Beryl was given a blouse like top with pleats, while on the other, the skirt is stylishly fitted to enhance the silhouette. The sleeves are cropped and made extra graceful by the pleats at the hem. The midi length dress falls to the calves, but you can of course adjust it to your taste.
Fabric recommendations: This shirt dress Bitta comes into its own in lyocell, poplin, viscose(crepe) and seersucker. And of course, a fine rib knit will give you a gorgeous autumn classic.
Playful with class: this ultra-feminine dress gets a cut-out with
a tie in an interesting place, providing a striking detail as well
as elegant draping. Furthermore, there are pleats at the round neckline to enhance the effect. This midi dress is cut on the bias, closes with a concealed zip and has a 7/8 sleeve with a slight puff effect. It looks like a difficult project, but it really isn't. Don't be put off!
Fabric recommendations: The elegance of this dress comes into its own by choosing a fabric with good drape, such as viscose twill, lyocell or cupro. Stiff fabrics will not achieve the desired effect as much. Avoid fabrics that are too thin.
Daria is the perfect dress for inclement autumn days. This fitted dungaree dress pairs nicely with a jumper or roll-neck sweater, but of course you can also wear a blouse underneath. The deep cut both at the front and the back give the classic look of dungarees with a fun twist. Furthermore, this dress has deep pockets, belt loops and shoulder straps with adjustable buckles.
Fabric recommendations: Opt for a stiffer fabric such as twill cotton, jeans and rib velvet or try a woollen fabric with sufficient weight. Classics like a pied-de-poule or prince-de-galles give a surprisingly stylish effect.
From jeans to a pencil skirt to a classic dress: Flavia pairs effortlessly with any garment, making it a timeless must-have. This short cardigan with round neck and extended shoulder line has set in, straight sleeves. The pleats at the hem create a nice volume and add extra shape to the garment. Tip: look for fancy buttons to make this cardigan really special.
Fabric recommendations: A knitted fabric obviously forms a perfect match, but you could just as easily go with a woven fabric. With the former, you get a cardigan effect, while the latter turns Flavia into a pretty jacket.
Sleeveless beauty: the debardeur is also unmissable this autumn. With Hoda, we make an original version of it. The eye-catchers are the ribbons that can be left hanging loosely or playfully tied. Another surprise: the back section of this round-neck spencer is longer than the front section. Combine Hoda with a loose blouse underneath for a striking look.
Fabric recommendations: Knitted fabrics are of course particularly suitable for this debardeur, but this pattern also lends itself to woven fabrics. A stylish jacquard or a fabric with an interesting structure / texture will undoubtedly give a very nice result.

Fans of skirts should definitely go with this pattern, because Livia not only looks very feminine, you can also style this skirt in different ways. The elegance is of course in the pleats and the midi length, but also in the details. For example, Livia has side pockets with a flap in the side seam (which you could also leave out if you prefer), a straight waistband with button closure and a zip in the back.
Fabric recommendations: Freedom of choice is what you get for Livia, as both a stiff and a supple fabric will do perfectly. However, the effect is completely different: a stiffer fabric like twill cotton or poplin will make it a statement piece. If you choose a supple fabric such as viscose (crepe), your skirt will flow wonderfully. Lyocell or a beautiful woollen fabric are also options.
Bleak autumn days? Maggie will pilot you through the showers and gusts of wind. This comfortable hooded jacket has a lining and a smart drawstring hem. Also, handy welt pockets, front zip and a cord in the hood.
A nice detail: the hem contains a piece of elastic which creates a playful gathered effect (and helps keeps the water out!).
Fabric recommendations: The fabric chosen depends on the purpose of your jacket. If Maggie is meant to brave rain showers, go for nylon. A quilted fabric makes it an extra warm winter coat, and with canvas or twill cotton you have good options for a parka version of Maggie.
This blouse features a mix of elegant details: delicate pleating at the neckline, a blind zip at the back and the two-piece raglan sleeves that run in an A- line shape towards the hem. Another reason to take on this sewing project: Nova has a particularly comfortable cut...
Fabric recommendations: Nova can be made in a supple or a slightly stiffer fabric. Lyocell (or a mix), poplin, woven jacquard: all are great options with a different effect each time.
The cool cargo trousers are in just about every collection this autumn, so don't miss this one if you are a fan. Prefer no patch pockets? No problem, these can be easily left out. Pax goes for character and comfort and that includes ties at the hem and a waistband with elastic and cord. No high waist here, these trousers are intended to sit a bit lower.
Fabric recommendations: Of course, twill cotton is the obvious choice, but there are other options. If you have a Pax pant in mind that ties at the bottom and drapes nicely, choose a heavy crepe or satin. You will also get an completely different effect with a nylon fabric or faux leather. If you have comfort in mind, go with jumper fabric or french terry.
Every wardrobe needs some success numbers that you always score with, and Risa is one of them. Casual feminine on jeans, but also very easy to transform into a festive eye-catcher. This wrap blouse is simply stylish with its collar and lapels, drop shoulders and straight sleeves.
Fabric recommendations: This ultimate blouse calls for a smooth-flowing fabric. Choose a medium-weight and especially flowing fabric. Get an extra festive effect with a shiny or metallic fabric.
A meeting at work, lunch with friends or festive season with the family: Zinnia effortlessly adapts to your plans. The choice of fabric also determines whether you make it a casual blouse or rather have a party in mind. The top has a round neckline and cropped, long sleeves with an elasticated sleeve hem. Fine detail: at the back you have a closure with a loop and a button.
Fabric recommendations: Woven to knitted fabrics, supple to stiff fabrics: Zinnia leaves you completely free to choose. Do you like it understated? Then choose a supple fabric with little or no texture, such as viscose (crepe), lyocell, satin, chambray... Both solid colours and prints will give a beautiful effect. If you prefer something more dramatic, go for fine corduroy, denim, poplin, leather or seersucker. Do you like working with a light, supple fabric? Voile cotton, muslin, crepe or thin viscose create a fluid and less voluminous effect. Finally, with stiff fabrics like poplin, raw silk, nylon and organza, you go for a statement piece.
