Painterly prints – Embrace your inner artist

Here at Sew Now HQ we’re embracing summer and swooning over the abundance of new painterly prints available in fabric shops now.

Combining watercolour washes and brushstroke textures – plus a whole lot of colour, these prints are sure to help your next make stand out from the crowd. So what are you waiting for? Start embracing the watercolour trend and add some artistic flair to your DIY wardrobe.

What started us on a painterly mission was seeing this amazing summer dress by Oliver Bonas, available now in store for £69.50.

The painterly print is generally a bigger and bolder scaled print so it would be best suited with a loose fitting, tunic-shaped dress or top pattern. Here are some more simply gorgeous Oliver Bonas ideas.

Our first pick is a bright brushstroke print from Minerva Crafts. This would look great in a pencil skirt or shell top.

Our next picks are from Bobbins n Buttons. We love the dot dash print for a casual holiday dress.

Finally, Cloth & Candy have some gorgeous brushstroke/painterly prints available, we especially love the summer bright colours in these two prints.

So, go on share your makes with us over on our social media sites – Facebook, Instagram and Twitter.

We can’t wait to see what you’re sewing!
