Spring Sewing Inspiration – 2024

We’re kicking off spring a bit early this year! To help us celebrate the new season of sewing and the coming warmer weather, we are thrilled to share six exciting new collaborations, each featuring fabric from our latest release. We are so excited to share what each sewist has created! We hope you love them and the new fabrics as much as we do!

Vintage Vibes with Michelle (@stitchin_camaro)

Remember knits! Often overlooked as the temperatures rise, knits have a place in our spring and summer wardrobes. Michelle selected this vintage-inspired floral French terry for a playful spring dress. We especially love the ruffly lettuce hem on the sleeves and bottom edge for an added feminine detail.

Fabric: Mod Daisy Jersey French Terry

Pattern: Vintage McCall’s 4089 (similar to Jalie’s Jocelyn Polo Dress)

Complete Look with Anali (@makesbyanali)

It is always so much fun “personal shopping” for our sewing collaborators. Anali sent us her inspiration, and we pulled different fabric and color combinations to help her find the right pairing. The resulting outfit is stunning and wraps up spring in one complete look. Each piece is an excellent addition to her handmade wardrobe, but together, they are a match made in sewing heaven!

Fabrics: Painterly Butterflies Rayon Poplin, Soft Washed Linen and Cotton Double Gauze Solid

Patterns: McCall’s 7976, Fabrics-Store Louis Linen Pants and Mimi G’s Duster Jacket (from Make it Yours Book)

Spring Greens with Dawna (@spoolriversewing)

This season is all about new beginnings—plants are coming to life, and sewing inspiration is all around us! Dawna knew she wanted a soft blouse paired with a jean-style jacket and found the perfect combination with this stunning leaf printed rayon and rich olive green denim. Not only are these colors perfect for this time of year, but she also found a beautiful balance of delicateness and structure—much like spring!

Fabric: Spring Leaves Digital Print Clip Dot Rayon and Colorful Mid Weight Stretch Denim

Patterns: P&M’s Stan Blouse and Vogue’s 1644

Creative Combo with Chann  (@madebychann)

We love a girl who knows what she wants! Chann immediately fell in love with this stunning spring floral rayon and was the first to email us her fabric choice. With her “ideal” spring dress in mind, she settled on not one but two sewing patterns to create her look! Combining a bodice from one with a skirt from the other, the resulting dress is truly WOW! It’s just the right mix of spring, femininity, and twirl!

Fabric: Vintage Spring Floral Digital Print Rayon Challis

Patterns: Mash-Up of the Charm Patterns Lamour Dress (bodice) + Stanwyck Skirt (skirt)

Everyday Dress Style with Dana  (@cityofseams)

Dreaming of all her favorite spring activities (trips to the farmer’s market, coffee dates, etc.), Dana created her perfect seasonal dress to suit every occasion. She selected a yarn-dyed linen blend for just the right balance of structure and drape, and the plaid design is somehow neutral yet colorful, and we love it! Oh, and did we mention the pattern is self-drafted? Amazing, right?!

Fabric: Yarn Dyed Plaid Linen Blend Shirting

Pattern: Self Drafted (Dana recommends Gracie Steel’s Darling Dress)

Spring Separates with Byrd (@yogabyrdsews)

Overalls continue to make a comeback, and we can see why! Byrd is adorable in her pair sewn up using our colorful stretch denim. After selecting the color, we collaborated with her to find just the right jersey knit for her matching tank, and this stunning floral is the perfect combo. While great together, we’re sure each piece will get lots of love this season, mixing and matching with her other me-mades!

Fabrics: Stained Glass Floral Jersey Knit and Colorful Mid Weight Stretch Denim (+ Overall Hardware)

Patterns: Seamwork’s Aaronica Tank and McCall’s 8437

Thank you so much for joining us to kick off another new season of sewing! Happy Spring!
