The first piece of stitchery for my summer wardrobe -
Please excuse the wrinkles, I've already worn and washed it. I absolutely love this pattern, so simple and so comfortable. The only modifications I made was to add the pockets and the bias tape stripe, which I also placed on the inside hem of the sleeves. I felt it needed just a little something to jazz it up. I didn't gather the sleeves either, I think the gathers make my arms look twice as fat as they already are, so not necessary. ☺
I'm planning on stitching up a storm this summer as I'm so tired of the lack of simple summer dresses and skirts in our shops. There's nothing I find more comfortable than a simple cotton dress on a hot summers day, but apparently the shops here are only interested in shorts and capris with t-shirts. I wonder why that is?
The next pattern on my list is New Look A6262. Patterns are so expensive, but these New Look patterns were less than $3.00 so buying one and not liking it is not a huge risk.
Does anyone have any recommendations on simple summer dresses?
I'd love to hear if others are sewing for themselves this summer.
