Happy spring everyone! Spring has definitely sprung in Charleston! The temps are hanging out in the 70s, the sun is shining, everything is blooming, and it makes me want to sew up all the fabrics that scream SPRING! Style Maker Fabrics new spring fabric collection is basically a one stop online shop for all the fabrics you could possible want/need for your spring wardrobe. I was thrilled when Michelle asked me to be a part of her spring canvas blog tour! Ya’ll know how much I love fabric right? Then she posted all these amazing pictures of the collection and we got free range to pick what we wanted. So after way too long spent deciding on my fabric, here is what I picked…..
…..an absolutely amazing double knit jacquard!
Isn’t fabulous!?! This fabric was a dream to cut and sew. It’s very stable, making it a great choice for a beginner, but also has really great drape. It’s not too light or too heavy, which makes it a great weight for the spring. I washed and dried my fabric in the dryer and it came out needing no pressing. Major bonus!!!
I decided to sew up the new Papercut Patterns Bowline Sweater. I purchased the bowline sweater before receiving the fabric and when the fabric showed up at my door, I knew instantly it was meant to be a bowline. It’s a perfect match for it!
I sewed the majority of the top using my serger and only used my sewing machine when the pattern required it. If you don’t own a serger, this fabric would sew up just as beautifully on your regular sewing machine. Yet another major bonus!
I also received embroidered chambray floral eyelet, but have not had a chance to sew it up yet. It is so unique and combines 3 of my favorite things- chambray, floral, and eyelet. Don’t worry, I’ll share what I make with you!
I hope you love my new top as much as I do! Make sure you check out what Mary from Idle Fancy has to share with you tomorrow!
