Jump-Start for Warmer Weather

Here are some simply stylish dresses that are modest and fairly easy to put together.  Find the right fabric for you and sew ahead of the season.  I am showing some views that are made using stripes and geometrics so you can see the style and cut of the design.
Simplicity 8891 is one of the newer styles offered for the spring and summer season.  The skirt may need lengthening.

View A  looks very comfortable.  Great for hot weather with no belt.

This dress from Simplicity 8907 can easily be lengthened as well as widened into an A-line skirt.

Simplicity 8914 offers a flared skirt that can be easily lengthened for modest reasons and has an interesting offset buttoning on the bodice,  It is another fairly easy pattern to sew up for summer.

Here is the classic shirt dress that is easy with a one piece collar. The skirt needs to be widened to an A-line but the length is great looking and modest.  The shoulder is off-set and shorter sleeves are an option.  I would opt for one fabric color or print.
Simplicity 8908

McCalls offers a similar dress to Simplicity 8891 and the skirt definitely needs to be lengthened.  It is also looser fitting and appears to have more  fullness in the skirt.

Simplicity 8909 would be another cool dress in lightweight cotton or linen,  The sleeves could be lengthened.

Simplicity 8871 has a clever idea for making an outfit different. The neckline needs to be raised. This would be best on ladies tall and slender.  Please sew the side seams all the way to the  hemline.

May your clothing bring God glory and honor.
