Finally, spring is coming! I can’t help but get excited about the warmer weather – especially after seeing all your amazing spring makes popping up on my Instagram feed. There are so many lovely pictures of you guys and your makes that I just had to compile a list of my favourites!
For additional information on these garments, just click on the pictures, they will take you to the original Instagram posts.
First up is @adritheschneider with a super elegant floral skirt. Look how versatile it is – it looks super professional with a shirt as a work outfit, but works as well with an elegant roll neck as going out outfit!
You guys seem to love sewing skirts! Next we have two button up versions, the first one modelled by Suzanna of @threadquarters, the second one by Erin of @poeticmemorysewing – and both paired with striped tees which gives them a slightly French vibe. Last but not least I stumbled upon another pattern pencil skirt by Marta from @cosmia, a slightly looser and relaxed summer version, also paired with a striped top – seriously stripes are thing this season…
More stripes can also be spotted on the feeds of the Stitch Sisters Nikki @sodburysewing in form of a fun rainbow coloured dress and on Rachel’s @shesewsvintage through this boldly coloured pleated skirt.
Another thing in spring, which is on those colder days quite practical as well, is having some versatile layering pieces at hand. I particularly loved seeing Karina’s jacket (@liftingpinsandneedles) which goes perfectly with blue jeans thanks to the background colour of its pattern and instantly adds some spring vibes to any outfit. Besides a statement layering piece a neutral version that goes with every outfit is also a very useful thing to have in your wardrobe – just look at this elegant cardigan made by Adri (@adritheschneider), looks so feminine and cosy…
The next trend I spotted are 3/4-sleeved drapey blouses, especially with slightly puffy sleeves. I love Laura’s version (@petitepassions), because it shows how elegant such a blouse can be, just add sheer sleeves, Victoria’s blouse (@victorialucilleanne) for its extravagance (while it still looks like a comfy thing to wear!) and Karina’s one (@liftingpinsandneedles) for again showing how awesome bold floral patterns look on this type of garment as well.
If you just want to make dressing a quick and easy thing in the mornings, these simple but cute blouses might inspire you – paired with jeans and you’re good to go! The first one by Erin of @poeticmemorysewing is actually made out of a knitted fabric and has a loose shape, but looks much more sophisticated. Vivian from @_stitchesandseams_ is rocking a fun floral blouse that looks pretty versatile. And Laura (@petitepassions) added some playfulness with the ruffle sleeves to an otherwise clean and simple cut top.
A fun way to add some pop and spring vibes to your outfits is with accessories – Mel from @stitch_make_bake shows here how some yellow jewellery, bag and shoes can totally elevate an easy summer dress.
Are you already working on some spring makes? I’d love to know what you find to be the best garments for this season and what you love to wear the most!
