I think spring is finally peeking it's head above the last of the snow since the trees are starting to grow buds...so I guess thinking about spring sewing is okay now. Especially since my new wearable muslin dress was made from a floral print which is one of the trends for spring.
Personally I love florals. I have quite a few pieces of fabric in the collection in vivid floral prints, so there will definitely be more garments sewn from them this spring/summer.
All of the pictures in this post were taken from the Spring 2015 Full Beauty magazine. I needed some examples of garments on plus size women because I have enough challenges with fit this season!
The other trends for Spring/Summer 2015:
White on White ~
I've recently made a white top, Vogue 8209, and next up on my cutting table is the white ponte to make a four gore flippy skirt to go with the top. This will be a great white on white outfit that will go with any number of cardigans in my wardrobe.
Pastel Power ~
Not only is this shown as a pastel but a pastel print in the pants. I've been on the fence about printed pants for my plus size body. Don't know if I'm still going to indulge but this does make me rethink my stance.
Highstyle Jumpsuits ~
I know jumpsuits are hot, hot, hot right now...and I guess I should get on the jumpsuit train...but I wore this once...and I have some not so pleasant memories of trying to wiggle out of them in the ladies room. So even though there are a couple of cute jumpsuit patterns and I even own one...this is a wait and see if I have enough time to sew one this season.
Neutral Terrority ~
Is it just me or does this feel like a repeat. There were plenty of patterns like this in the pattern catalogues a couple of years ago and probably still in your pattern stashes.
Brights, Brights, Brights ~
Now this is so me! I want to add a lot of color and prints to my wardrobe this season. I have loads of brightly colored fabric...I just need to figure out how I want to use it.
This is a very general direction in which my sewing will go this spring/summer ~ especially since the real emphasis will be on fitting ~ and this will primarily be the background noise.
...always more later!
