Today, we are going to offer tips that will help you incorporate all the latest trends into your sewing projects.

Research all of the latest fashion trends from the most recent fashion week. Since spring fashion week just wrapped up you'll be able to get started on some great pieces for warmer weather.

Take a look at the fabric types that were used for pieces in various shows. You'll probably see a trend happening there. Many designers choose fabrics based on the time of year. That means lighter, cooler material for spring and summer.

Patterns or solid colors will also be very visible during your research. Be sure to note patterns you see quite often. Also, certain colors like pink, yellow and variations of the shades will be trending, as well.
