What are some of the best fabrics for summer sewing?
Summer is one of the best times for sewing, all with the weather and sunlight.
But also due to the large availability of fabrics for summer sewing.
Aside from the obvious cotton fabrics, summer sewing is all about using linen fabric, light weight prints, madras plaid & check fabrics, handwoven stripes, chambray fabrics and hand block prints.
Summer sewing is all about sewing skirts, men’s shirts, boy’s shorts, light weight dresses, children’s printed dresses and just about anything.
And summer is usually a great time for some quilting as well, to get some lovely art quilts ready for upcoming cold days.
Quilting usually focuses on small motif prints, plaids, stripes and lots of solids to go with these, for creating beautiful art on quilts.
Summer sewing can be fun and useful, regardless of your fabrics of choice. So, get sewing.
