Let’s all wear…checks!
Selfish sewing time! Checked fabrics, especially yarn dyed wovens, are everywhere and they are not going away – in addition to everything you see here, we also have collections coming from Cotton and Steel by the end of the month Cloud9 in the autumn. So today we’re showing you some ideas for pairing checked fabric with indy sewing patterns for some really fun garments!
The Alder shirtdress is just made for gingham! Check out the awesome version that Jen of Grainline sewed up in Carolina Gingham here.
A casual, loose-fitting dress, Fen is perfect paired with this soft, floaty double gauze check!
How about a flirty, girly dress? We know that Dahlia looks absolutely amazing in plaid, and paired with this painterly pastel pink gingham it would be a confection!
Fabric: Dapper Wovens – Check is in the Mail in Mustang Blue by Luke Haynes
Sewing Pattern: Ultimate Trousers by Sew Over It
This soft brushed cotton woven check would make such a cute pair of trousers! Check out Karen’s version for plaid Ultimate Trousers inspiration.
This gingham is printed on the diagonal and would make a picnic-perfect summer skirt!
