Spring is just around the corner and I think it's safe to say that I think we're all itching to ditch the heavy winter layers and soak up the sunshine once again. So, in honour of the rising temps and melting snow, I've rounded up 9 sewing patterns for Spring that will easily take you from cold mornings to balmy afternoons, and from April showers to May flowers.
1. Workshop Hayley Dungarees - Difficulty: Beginner
Slouchy and slightly oversized these dungarees look super comfy and like the perfect outfit for digging around in the garden. Paired with a simple tee-shirt these dungarees are perfect for sunny spring days; and when it inevitably gets a little chilly you can throw a cozy cardigan over top.
2. Ready to Sew Jamie Cardigan - Difficulty: Beginner
Speaking of cardigans, I believe they are a great wardrobe staple during the transitional seasons of Spring and Fall. I'm probably biased because the Jamie Cardigan is on my Make Nine list this year, but I think it's a great cardigan choice for Spring and good alternative to a light spring jacket.
3. I AM Jacques Raincoat - Difficulty: Intermediate
When it comes to spring weather there are no guarantees - cold one day and balmy the next - but one thing you can be pretty sure of is that there will be rain. Be prepared with The I AM Jacques, a classic raincoat that can be sewn in 3 different lengths.
4. Friday Pattern Co. Ilford Jacket - Difficulty: Confident Beginner
Another great spring jacket option is the Ilford Jacket from Friday Pattern Co. I love that it's unisex and can be sewn up in variety of lengths and materials, making it an incredibly versatile pattern.
5. Closet Case Morgan Boyfriend Jeans - Difficulty: Intermediate
I love boyfriend jeans, but I only wear them rolled up which means spring (and very early fall) is basically the only time I wear them. The Morgan Jeans feature a slim fit, slightly tapered leg, and a button fly.
6. I AM Armor Pants - Difficulty: Confident Beginner
Back in highschool I owned a pair of vintage wool sailor's pants and they were my absolute favourite. So I guess you could say that these sailor inspired wide legged pants are right up my alley. With 3 different lengths to choose from this is an all-seasons pattern with the cropped length being ideal for spring.
7. Seamwork Jo Dress - Difficulty: Beginner Intermediate
Of course when it comes to spring sewing we can't forget dresses! After all, after months of being covered up it's time to get some vitamin D on those legs again. I always love a good shirt dress and I particularly love the band collar on this Seamwork Jo dress.
8. By Hand London Hannah Dress - Difficulty: Confident Beginner
If you're looking for a more fitted and feminine dress option, I love the Hannah Wrap dress from By Hand London. It's just so pretty and perfect for spring.
9. Assembly Line V-Neck Jumpsuit - Difficulty: Confident Beginner
Last, but not least, what would a sewing pattern round-up be without a little jumpsuit love? There is no shortage of jumpsuits to choose from these days, but I am quite enamored with the v-neck jumpsuit from Assembly Line. It has a relaxed fit without being too baggy and an optional belt if you prefer a cinched waist look.
