Sewing for Summer! {+ a Fabric Spark discount code}

2014 May 20

I am so inspired to stitch up some summer clothes right now. My husband and I just went through our closet this past weekend and donated the things we haven’t worn in a while. I think I was in a generous mood and may have de-cluttered a bit too much! I am not upset though, because now I have room to hang a few new things I can sew for myself!

Since Daryl from Fabric Spark is providing us a discount this week (scroll down for the code) I thought it would be fun to pair a few summer patterns I’ve been eyeing with some of her fabrics. Of course, she’s got canvas weight fabric for totes and quilting cotton and patterns available too – so don’t limit yourself to clothing! (PS. I just found out that she sells some of the patterns on my to-do list as well! One-stop shopping, hooray!)

April Rhodes – the Staple Dress

Art Gallery – Beekeeper Coral

Kaffe Fassett – Belle Epoch Yellow

I’ve been eyeing the popular April Rhodes Staple Dress for about a year now. I’m going to have to finally give in and buy it. Daryl had the same idea as I did and labeled both of these fabrics as possibilities for adult clothing. Great minds think alike!

imagine gnats – Alder Skirt

AMH – Raindrops Pop in Candy

Zen Chic – Wind Flower Dark Blue

The Alder Skirt pattern from Imagine Gnats was released last week. The front pleat and pocket detail are perfect for some trendy pattern matching. I need more skirts in my wardrobe, now that my girls are old enough that I can wear one without fearing indecency!

Wiksten Tank

Essex Yarn Dyed Linen/Cotton

Alexander Henry – Rashida Skin

I’ve had the Wiksten tank on my list for so long I don’t even remember when I added it. I suppose it is going to eventually be made?! I’d love one in the yarn dyed Essex, or a little bolder maybe in animal print with a colour-blocked back yoke.

Thanks to Daryl, we can all head on over to Fabric Spark to get $5 off any fabric order over $25.00! Use the code “Threadbucks” to get your discount until May 28th, 2014. Happy Summer sewing!

    This is perfect! I actually just bought the Staple dress pattern and have had such a hard time finding the right fabric. I don’t think I’ll have a problem finding something here :) Thanks for the coupon code!

      Yes! I love it. I think it will be a favorite for this summer. And I know where to get the fabric! :)
