simply sewing fresh ideas with fabric

We don’t need much encouragement to switch our winter woolies for swishy frocks, so at the very first signs of spring we’re already dreaming up our new-season wardrobe – and this year it’s all about chic ditsy florals and sugary hues!

Share your makes using #simplysewingmag…
