Let’s all wear…nautical!
Selfish sewing time! We see a lot of fabric trends come and go in the shop and we thought it would be fun to pair fabric ideas with sewing patterns in different themes that we’re seeing a lot of. It’s a fun project for us, and we hope it will inspire you to create some awesome garments for yourself. So today I give you: nautical!
This lightweight denim is just right for a pair of cute shorts and the pattern is subtle enough that you can pull on virtually any top and you’re out the door for summer fun!
We can’t get enough of Sailor’s Dobby! It’s a lightweight cotton fabric with dobby dots that give it texture and a seaworthy vibe. We think it would be so cute paired with the relaxed-fit Factory Dress in summer.
This pairing is a no-brainer, since we’ve seen it and loved it already! This fabric has a single border, so you’ll have a boat print gathered skirt with a bold striped bodice. It couldn’t be cuter!
We love the idea of pairing this printed chambray with sleeveless version of the Vintage Shirt Dress. It’s just the sort of frock you can imagine wearing on the deck of a ship, chilled glass of prosecco in hand.
Have a little fun with this toy boat-print organic fabric and a button-back top! From French illustrator Sarah Betz, this is the sort of design-led novelty print we just adore, and it offers a playful take on our nautical theme.
What do you think? Will you make any of these garments? Are there any other themes you’d like us to explore?
