Hi Ya’ll. Spring is upon us! Now, I don’t know about you but the thought of warm weather and the emergence of vibrant colorful flowers really inspire me to sew. With that being said, I thought I’d share with you my favorites, new and old, for Spring.

My blog is only 3-months old and many of you may not have good feel for my personal style. Well, let me give it to you straight… I’m not one whom follows every evolving trend. I’m a no frills kind of girl and I love to sew garments that reflect my no frills style. Don’t get me wrong, I do enjoy trends as much as the next sewist. However, I tend to veer towards styles and trends I can see myself wearing again and again, season after season. Now that you’ve been forewarned, here are some of my picks (and pattern options) for Spring:

Dresses

I love to wear dresses year-round. No matter what color, style or fit, a dress is an open canvas. The combinations for day and night are endless with the right accessories. I also love dress because they are easy to sew. Here are my few of my Spring pattern picks for dresses:

  • McCall’s 7566
  • Butterick 6446
  • Vogue 9237
  • Simplicity 8178

Tunics

Tunics are another easy piece that can be dressed up or down. For work you, can wear a tunic with a bold statement necklace, belt, pencil skirt and heels. For a more causal look, you can pair a tunic with leggings or skinny jeans with flat sandals or espadrilles. The combinations are endless. Here are my pattern picks for tunics:

  • McCall’s 7571
  • McCall’s 7360
  • Simplicity 8140
  • McCall’s 7391

Midi Skirts

Midi skirts are so also easy to wear and sew. I love midi skirts not only because they are a quick sew but I also love the endless fabric options. Midis are also versatile and can be paired with both knit and woven tops. Here are my pattern picks for midi skirts:

  • Tabatha Sewers’ Midi Skirt Tutorial (YouTube)
  • Mimi G Style’s Maxi Skirt Tutorial (YouTube)
  • Simplicity 8211
  • Simplicity 8019

Wide Leg Pants/Gauchos

Wide Leg Pants and gauchos remind me of resort wear. It’s because wide legs pants and gauchos look so comfortable and chic. I love the movement of rayon challis with these types of pants. To keep it trendy, pair with an off-the-shoulder blouse. Here are my pattern picks:

  • McCall’s 6514
  • McCall’s 6515
  • Butterick 6223
  • Vogue 9075

Ruffled/Flutter Tops

Ruffled and flutter sleeved tops are another one of my Spring favs. These tops are fun, feminine and easy to wear. Depending on the cut, these tops can easily transition from day to night as well. Here are my pattern picks for ruffled/flutter tops:

  • Butterick 6457
  • McCall’s 7542
  • McCall’s 7573
  • Simplicity 8335
  • Simplicity 8341

Jumpsuits/Rompers

Although I hardly wear them, I’ve always admired the look of jumpsuits and rompers. Depending on the style and cut, these garments can be worn by women of all ages. Jumpsuits and rompers are also very versatile and can be chic and sophisticated or flirty and fun. Here are my pattern picks for jumpsuits:

  • Butterick 6462
  • McCall’s 7547
  • McCall’s 7409
