5 Easy Summer Pieces To Add To Your Wardrobe

Summer Time Sewing

Currently I am in the stages of finishing up my dress for a 1940s ball that I’m attending this weekend.  This is the first costume type event that I’ve ever attended. It will be interesting to see what others are wearing. I’m wondering if there will be a lot of store-bought outfits.

Naturally, I’m sewing my dress, but I did have a dress I purchased at a vintage clothing store years ago on stand-by in case things didn’t work out. Overall, my dress is a basic sundress but it is an authentic pattern from 1948.

I love summertime sewing. It’s my favorite time to sew (until fall comes). Spring and summer is the perfect time to whip up cute clothes that can easily be completed in an evening.

Here’s a few summer wardrobe ideas that will require a couple of hours at the most!

Tops with easy sleeves, such as the Up In Arms blouse are the quickest kind to make. Plus, the gathers make fitting a breeze.

SOLD OUT!  Sorry the Magic Bias Dress pattern is sold out in shopsewitall.com. But can be purchased here: Fashion in Harmony.  The Magic Bias Dress can be made in a summer worthy fabric of silk or a voile, and it will be your all time favorite throughout the season. This dress is very easy to make into a maxi length. Just be sure to purchase enough yardage to account for the extra inches.

Of course no summer is wardrobe is complete without shorts. The Short & Sweet shorts pattern are flattering to make on different body sizes. Check the blog for helpful tips to make a pair for yourself.

Bags, totes and purses! We all need a summer tote bag to carry around our sunscreen, romance novel and keys. Fortunately, there is an endless supply of easy-to-make bags. I like the Mod Beach Tote for its size.

Lastly, no summer wardrobe should be without my favorite, maxi skirts! I have a couple of maxi skirts in woven and knits. Try a knit for super fast summer sewing.
