Summer sewing is the best kind of sewing. Summer is the time I sew the most.project after project, ideas galore, it must be the light and the length of the days. Crochet is a an Autumn – Winter project and my hook has been deserted. I dont even know where my favourite hook is right now! My sewing machine is the king of my sewing realm.
I haven’t posted for quite some time, So I thought you may like a catch up of what I’ve been sewing recently?
5 summer sewing Projects.
1. Shorts for Him.
Using an old pattern from Burda (Burda 7230) I made him some long surfer shorts. Perfect for relaxing in at the end of the day. I have sewn these before, does anyone remember when I use to do a ‘Man Sew’ once a month? Well, he loved them so much he requested another pair! Easy and quick to sew, I used fabric from my stash.
A Shirred Blouse For Me
I made this as part of a collaboration with Julia From Bobbins and Buttons we were discussing sustainability and Julia came up with a lovely blog series idea. She is inviting people who sew to express their views on sustainability and to get creative on extending the clothes in their wardrobe, by making a garment to bring old things back into wearable outfits. I chose this blouse, it is one of Julia’s designs for Love sewing magazine and can be downloaded for free.
3. A dress for a baby girl.
The best kind of summer sewing, sewing for a baby girl! My cousins daughter has the most beautiful little girl, I first met her when she was 4 months old. Having not had the opportunity to sew for a girl i jumped at the chance to make her a couple of dresses. The results you can see below. pattern is New Look 6578
So what do you think, I think Summer sewing is very quick and simple, perhaps that is the joy of it?
