No chocolate bunnies to share here, but I can definitely feel my mood shifting from all those sombre winter black fabrics I’ve been sewing for the past six months. Spring prints are calling to me, starting with the above poplin from Ray Stitch that I think would make a beautiful version of the Sew Over It Vintage Shirt Dress. (I’ve already made one version here.)
Okay, so maybe I haven’t entirely abandoned black in the above WIP, using lawn cotton – now sadly sold out, as far as I can see. The pattern has been a challenge to my body and I’m still waiting to see if this is going to be a success or a failure.
And then there are all the other fabrics I’ve been purchasing…
The silk on the left was recently featured in one of Lisa’s Youtube videos. The fabric on the right is a peached cotton poplin from Fabric Godmother. I can’t see this particular one still in stock, but there are other peached cotton poplins available such as this and this.
And then there are the fabrics I can’t stop myself from buying, even though the colour ways are startlingly similair. What would you sew with either of the below? I can envisage pussy bow blouses, but could you make other suggestions? I need inspiration to use up all my Spring!
