I don’t know what the weather is like around you all, but it is HOT here! Seriously HOT! Like five minutes outside and I feel like I am melting! This summer, I’ve been living in anything loose fitting to help beat the heat, and that means skirts and dresses! I love shorts and t shirts, but man, even a t shirt is sweltering in this Florida heat!
My loose, comfy dress department is lacking, so I’m thinking this summer I might need to make a few more southport dresses. And Closet Case Files just released a pattern for a new maxi dress / jumpsuit! Definitely on my to sew list!
But for now I’ve been living in skirts! Megan Nielsen has a great new free pattern for a circle skirt, with loads of options, the Veronika Skirt. Since I love a quick sew every now and then, I sewed up the skirt in knit fabric with an elastic waistband. Super comfy, super simple, and looks like I tried when I got dressed in the morning! My kind of getting dressed!
This is sewn in Robert Kaufman laguna jersey, in emerald. I know I’ve said this a million times before, but I live in a small town with not a lot of fabric buying options. That leaves the internet to rescue me, and Robert Kaufman’s jersey is a safe buy! I know it is good quality and will last after many, many washes.
Have you added anything new to your summer sewing list?
