Do you do winter florals?

These floral fabrics are perfect for the colder months, who says flowers are just for summer? I’ve paired them up with my favourite patterns to inspire your new winter floral wardrobe…

This beautifully soft Quadro Olio Satin with it’s large painted blooms scream romance. What better than a floaty midi dress? Try the Named Stella Raglan Shirtdress for a dramatic outfit that works beautifully over black opaques and layered with a chunky knit.

This stunner is a coating, yes that’s right, this absolutely jaw dropping Amore floral is printed on a super soft felted coating fabric. The clean lines of the Clare coat from Closet Case Patterns would be ideal to maximise this attention seeking fabric.

I love a cotton with a bit of stretch, so forgiving and so versatile. Both the Emma and the Dora have 3% elastane in them and are perfect trouser weight fabrics. Go for the beginner friendly Ultimate Trousers from Sew Over It and pair them with a plain sweater simple yet stylish!

Scuba is perfect for making a party dress, and who says all winter florals have to be dark and moody. The Paradise Scuba has big bold flowers on a bright green background. Lift everyone’s spirits in a Deer & Doe Zephyr dress, specially designed to be made from scuba.
