Spring feels like the perfect time to wear a floral print and with so many fabric options, you are bound to find the perfect pattern! Bold, muted, bright, pastel, there is a floral for just about every taste!
Small Scale Florals
The Turn About Tank is a great choice for now. It is lovely under a sweater or denim jacket and it's a great top in the summer heat. The tank has two neckline finishing options, a ruffle or a tie-up, and the V-neck can be worn in the front or the back.
For this tank we used an Art Gallery cotton in a small print.
This version is a little brighter in an Amy Butler print!
Large Scale Florals
The scale of a floral print is important to keep in mind when choosing a sewing pattern. For a large scale floral, choose a pattern with simple lines and few pieces so the flowers are not too broken up. This Urban Tunic was made with a large poppy print by Alexander Henry and the Everyday Tank is an Art Gallery print.
Floral Pattern Mixing
This Slumber Party PJs set was made in a soft Windham Heather Ross lawn. This is a great example of mixing a large with a small floral print!
Subtle Floral Options
Try a monochromatic or muted floral for another great way to work prints into your wardrobe. Katelyn's Dress looks great sewn up in a subtle grey on black Island Batik. We used Jason Yenter’s In The Begining Fabrics Night Bloom in tone on tone florals of Magenta and Teal for a Shift Dress and an Easy Top.
