Simplicity Patterns for a Stylish Spring

Having officially reached the shortest day of the year with today’s Winter Solstice, at Simplicity HQ we’re eagerly looking forward to more sunlight and spring sewing sessions!

With fashion fans already declaring the top trends for spring 2017, here is our selection of catwalk ready Simplicity patterns



Top Trend: Beautiful Bralettes

Bralettes proved a popular choice on the spring catwalks, with Alexander Wang and Victoria Beckham (amongst others) tapping into this trend.

Helping you have fun with fashion, Simplicity patternd 1426 & 1166 tick the boxes!

Top Trend: Shirt Dresses  

Simple yet stylish, shirt dresses in all different shapes and sizes were spotted on the catwalk.

This Burda 6644 pattern hits two trends, with a simple shirt dress as option A and option B offering up a safari style make – another popular trend for Spring 2017.


Top Trend: Try Tulle

This lightweight, ultra-feminine material was a firm favourite on the spring catwalks.

Try this quick and easy New Look 6327 pattern to try tulle this spring.

Top Trend: One Shoulder

If 2016 was the year of the bardot, 2017 is the year of the one shoulder. A great way to tap into the 80s inspired trends and to get ready for a summer of sunshine (we hope!)

We love this Burda 6868 pattern, for an amazing make that’ll stand out from the crowd.
