On a week during which the summer-y weather of the weekend devolved into hail and sleet, Robert Kaufman’s London Calling collection was exactly what we needed to remind that spring — and lasting warm weather — is indeed on the way. This fun, floral collection of printed cotton lawns is lovely to look at and will be fantastic to wear in the seasons ahead.

Robert Kaufman’s lawn has a crisp hand a nice drape, making it perfect for building a warm-weather wardrobe. It’s perfect for the Bristol skirt from the latest Seamwork and Sewaholic’sCrescent Skirt. We also love the idea of using one of the leafy or larger floral prints for dress, like Pattern Runway’s Gathered Sundress. For extra fun, we love the idea of using two of the smaller florals in one piece, such as By Hand London’s Polly Top and Deer & Doe’s Datura Blouse. We can’t wait to get started.
