Ace & Jig Spring 2018 Textile Guide

Ace & Jig Spring 2018 Textile Collage
Collage made by me!

Still no official release of Ace & Jig Spring 2018 yet, but I took the liberty of gathering up all of the textiles I saw in the preview photos for some fun discussion and speculation — 25 in all and counting!. In case you missed it, I highly recommend checking out my previous post for a preview of Ace & Jig Spring 2018.

The textile info below is comprised of my own wild (albeit educated) guesses about what to expect. Note: The names aren't real — just a fun inside joke, since the collection so strongly evokes candy to me — but it makes them easier to talk about, so why not? See below for my musings. And feel free to suggest better textile names in the comments!

And if you want to learn more about this season's textiles, take a gander at my recently updated Ace & Jig Fall 2017 Textile Guide!
