Whenever spring and early summer rolls around, there are a few fabrics I’m continually on the hunt for because they just feel so appropriate. Luckily this year, one of those fabrics is in plentiful supply. I’m talking about picnic-style gingham, which appears in the smattering of items I’ve highlighted above – but in my searches I actually found many, many more examples I could have shared with you. If you want to get into the spring of things, then look no further!
