A few suggestions for Summer Wear

Summer is almost half over.  There is still plenty of time to make a few lightweight additions to your wardrobe.  If you are still in situations where you have time to sew, read, write letters, etc., due to Covid19, this would be a good time to sew a new garment.  I have found a few items that are available from the 4 major pattern companies that are mostly quick and easy to sew.

  • First, a few different angles on some jackets for a little warmth when the days or evenings are cooler.

This one could be made shorter in length and with a level hem. 

A short open jacket might work well with a lot of outfits that have a definite waist line.  A solid color would be best.

I found this jacket to be a little different and would go nicely with dresses and skirts.  It looks very comfortable and not difficult to sew.  Heavier fabrics or a loose weave would work well.

  • Secondly, dresses that are fairly easy to sew and quick to make and comfortable to wear.

A pullover dress that is modest as well as comfortable.

Some more easy to sew dresses

Lengthen this pattern for a modest loose look or even a dress for those expecting, just make sure you have room to expand.

This dress has interesting gathering details at the neck and waist making it a very feminine-looking garment.

A cute dress that is fitted and would look great on young ladies with a lengthened hemline.

 Well, those  are a  few suggestions for now.  Summer is the time for some easy and quick to sew projects because with the days being longer and warm weather there are many outdoor activities that most people want to take advantage of while they can.

May your summer time with your family be blessed, may your faith in the LORD  increase,  and may your projects glorify the LORD.

  • Praise ye the LORD: for it is good to sing praises unto our God; for it is pleasant; and praise is comely.  Psalm 147:1
