Flower Power! - Floral Fabric Inspiration

We absolutely love floral designs here at Sew Me Sunshine which means we often have a lot of choice in stock. They are some of our favourite fabrics to source and we love pairing them up with sewing patterns! Florals are not just for spring and summer, but they can definitely work all year round...

Ready to wear fashion is a gold mine for sewing inspiration, sometimes it can be tricky to imagine what a fabric looks like when sewn up and we've found the best place to start is by looking in shops! If you have the time it can also be beneficial to try on these garments to see which style you like best before spending your precious sewing time creating one yourself.
