Current stitches #2 – spring florals and vintage fabrics

There’s nothing I love more than whipping up a truly unique piece of clothing for my wardrobe from vintage cottons. And in case you were in any doubt, it’s floral all the way so come and feast your eyes on some of my recent spring makes.

This month, with spring on the horizon I’ve been sewing lots of skirts – pencil, A-line, tulip – you name it! I’ve also got a lovely new shift dress to share with you.

First up is this pencil skirt made from vintage Sanderson fabric that I picked up at a flea market towards the end of last year.

If you follow me on Instagram you’ll know that I had a couple of goes at the waistband – adding some darts to the front the second time round to add a little more detail and improve the fit. This is my absolute favourite Sanderson print, I also made a dress for new year out of this Sanderson Fabric.

Next up, a blue floral shift dress. I have to confess the fabric I used for this is new, from Sew Over It and I also made the dress using their ultimate shift pattern. I think it’s going to be a summer staple, just need the weather to warm up first. *crosses fingers*.

Don’t you just love the frill sleeves?

Here’s a new bark cloth number, unfortunately I didn’t have enough fabric for a full size circle skirt so I made a 1/4 circle skirt.

I’ve got a feeling it’s going to be perfect for spring.

Finally, this tulip skirt I’m absolutely loving. I think this fabric is absolutely adorable and I can’t wait to wear this allllll spring long.

I hope that’s given you a vibrant injection of spring colour! I’m definitely feeling like spring is on the way, hop on over to Instagram if you’d like to see more!
