Retro-inspired patterns for your summer sewing projects

La Sirena's Retro Inspired fabric swatches

I just approved these fabric swatches and the new fabrics are now available for you on my Spoonflower Shop.

Let’s make some summer sewing projects!

I am not the best at sewing, but I am determined to make two summer dresses while I’m on my PNW vacation. One out of the pink Coney Island food sign pattern, and one out of the pinup mermaid parade pattern. I think I’m going to use this sewing pattern from Colette Patterns. But I’ve also been digging around on Sprout Patterns’ site and I kinda like this one too.

Sidenote: Have you heard of Sprout Patterns?

I haven’t used them yet, but I love the way it works.
1. You select a sewing pattern
2. Choose your Spoonflower fabric
3. The sewing pattern is printed right on the chosen fabric
4. When you get the fabric it’s all ready for you to cut and sew.

Let me know if you decide to sew something up, I’d love to see what you make. I’ll share my completed dresses with you at the end of June/beginning of July.
