Tropical fabrics for spring-summer sewing

Tropical Ruffle Top Debenhams

With the sunshine finally arriving this week, we’re starting to get that summer feeling!
Tropical prints and all things Havana are set to be a hot trend this year, so why not get started on sewing your summer makes with our favourite roundup of exotic fabrics? In the next couple of weeks we will also be sharing our favourite summery patterns for beginners, perfect for showing off those tropical prints.

Here are few garments and fabrics to inspire your colourful new summer wardrobe!

M&Co Tropical Holiday Dress

This classic simple summer dress from M&Co will suit all dress sizes and shapes for the summer months, with a flattering V-neck and loose-fit.

Tropical Prints from TRURO fabrics

These vibrant tropical prints from TRURO fabrics are beautifully bold, with the flowers contrasting against block-colour backgrounds. Ideal for swishy skirts and chic shift dresses.

M&S tropical Boho dress 

Simply feminine and floaty, this M&S dress ticks all our sewing boxes for our summer holiday wardrobe this year.


Monsoon Tropical Print Jumpsuit

This gorgeous Monsoon jumpsuit is so dreamy, with its paradise garden feel and pretty little parrots. Jumpsuits are  a firm favourite with the Sew Now team this season and can be a really flattering choice. Using a darker base print will help to hide knicker and strap lines too. We’ll be chatting lots more about jumpsuits on the blog very soon, so keep checking back for more inspiration!

Fabworks Tropical Fabrics

Fabworks offer some stunning and slightly more subtle tropical prints. These fabrics would look striking in a holiday top or dress paired with some neutral colours.
