Rowena Inspiration and Fabric sources

July 31, 2022

Last week I released the Rowena pattern and I wanted to pull together some inspiration and fabric resources to get help you visualize this pattern in various fabrics and help get your wheels going for this project.

In case you haven't grabbed your pattern yet, take a look at Rowena here.  


I love this style in florals, abstract prints, stripes checks or just a straight up solid. Basically anything goes! 

You'll find a collection of images that serve as inspiration for your project and help you to consider that look and feel that you may want for your jumpsuit or pants. I've also selected several fabrics from a few online stores that I love that I think will works great with Rowena. 

These fabrics are suggestions to get you started. You should keep your preferred fabric weight and fiber content in mind as you go through this list. Rowena works best with light to mid-weight weight fabric with a soft drape such as linen, rayon,  silk, double gauze or crepe.

And just a little tip in case you're into linen, I recently found a great Canadian online store that sells beautiful quality linen at the most reasonable price I've ever come across. They're called Pure Linen Envy. Check them out if you're considering using linen for this project!
