Think Spring with Sly Fox Fabrics!

Mar 11, 2019

Once March arrives, I am in full blown spring weather mode.  No matter if there is snow on the ground (or in the in air) or not, March equals spring and I get to start wearing brighter colors and less heavy fabrics.

The amazing team of foxes over at Sly Fox Fabrics must have known my mental/emotional change of seasons, because they sent me some Baby French Terry to play with.  I’m super grateful that they did because I got to make a new springy style top to add to my closet.  And I’m crushing pretty hard over it.

If you’ve never played with Baby French Terry before, it’s quite lovely.  It’s got a pretty decent drape, a 50% horizontal / 10% vertical stretch, and is SO SOFT.  And if you’re a new sewist, it’s a super easy fabric type to work with because it doesn’t have the highest tendency to curl, isn’t slippery, and can be manipulated pretty easily.  Sly Fox is carrying a ton of colors in their stock right now, in case you needed someone to go push you into online fabric shopping.  Hint hint.Image may contain: text

I crack myself up because in one breath I’ll be all “I don’t have any solid colored tops to wear” and in the next, I’m like “I’m going to add a different colored lace to this solid top so it’s no longer a solid colored top”.  WHOOPS.

Can you blame me though?  I’ve been wanting to use this super wide lace that’s been in my stash for FOREVER now.  The problem is, I couldn’t quite figure out how I wanted to apply it.  I wanted to keep it in it’s super wide laced glory as much as possible, which is why the back application was ideal for me.  But I thought it would be too much if I did the same on the front.  So I lined it up just above the top of my bust line and I’m a smitten kitten about how it turned out.

Don’t these colors together just scream spring to you?  I’m generally not a pink girl (I always think it doesn’t go with my coloring) but I adore it paired with this soft jade color.

Would you have paired this lace and fabric together?  I’m curious how you would have done it differently!
