Modern Fabrics for Everyday Outfits

Hi There, 

What are some of your favorite sewing patterns? I know I am always on the lookout for sewing patterns that are first somewhat easy and quick to sew up and second they have to be comfortable! And just because it’s comfortable don’t mean it can’t be cute!  

Picking the right prints for your garment is the fun part! I am really digging Dana Willard’s new collection! Blush fabrics has super fun geometric fabrics mixed with modern floral fabrics. My favorite print in the collection is the print called Cat Nap, perfect for all the cat lovers out there!

Lastly, I need to pick the right fabric substrates. My go to fabrics for sewing apparel for me and my family are AGF knit fabric and rayon fabric. AGF cotton fabrics are also great because they have enough drape for clothing yet they have a bit more structure that works great for so many great clothing patterns like dresses and lightweight jackets!

Here are a few of my favorite sewing patterns that can all be found in the Blush Lookbook.

1.Kitty Dress by Maven Patterns

 With bust darts to frame your figure and a peter pan collar for a sweet modern look the Kitty Dress is a great basic dress to have in your wardrobe. It also includes the option for 3/4-length or short sleeves. This dress is easy to wear and what I love the most is you can add different style of collars or no collar at all which makes this dress super versatile.

2.Vintage Joan Dress by Burda Style

We made our Vintage Joan Dress with our Floret Sun Kissed rayon fabric. This dress can easily be worn casually to the grocery store or an afternoon in the park but can also be transformed to go out to a nice dinner or a special occasion all while being super comfy and looking great! The feel and drape of AGF Rayon is amazing and you can really live in it and not be afraid to get it dirty or use and abuse it on your daily endeavors. I really love how the armholes are constructed to taper towards the neck, which helps accentuate the shoulders.

 3. Sugar Pop Top by Sew Caroline 

The Sugar Pop Top is perfect for the those of you who live in jeans. Throw on a Sugar Pop Top and a pair of your favorite jeans and you will be ready to face the day! Just like the Kitty Dress you have the fun collar action which who can change up to your liking. This top has two great sleeve options, cap sleeves for the everyday look or flutter sleeves to make your top a bit more dressy!

4. Anywhere Skirt by Dana Willard

I love dresses but skirts are a great alternative for the person who loves their jeans and tops. Try switching up your everyday wardrobe with a simple skirt and a basic t shirt or blouse!

Isn't Dana adorable in this outfit? :)

5. Audrey Pants by Burda Style

We made our Audrey Pant with the Retro Petals Power knit print! My favorite things about these pants are of course the super deep pockets and the beautiful tapered hem. We paired our pants with a solid knit fabric basic tee. Tuck it in for a more polished look!
