Summer Sewing

Our machines have been buzzing!  Summer dresses = super easy sewing.  Here are a few examples.

This is a variation of the popular pillowcase dress.  It can be a dress, swim coverup, or top.  Simple seams and tie straps finish it off easily.  A fabric flower was added to the front of this one.  This is a great  beginner project that can be finished in just a couple hours using under one yard of fabric.  I know you have something in your stash that would be perfect!

Beautiful silk fabric with elastic shirring at the top, which can easily be done to any fabric.  It’s a simple rectangle of fabric, this one has panels of contrast fabric along the bottom.  I”ve had this fabric in my stash for years, and this was the perfect project for it, it was just under one yard, so the fabrics along the bottom added length and matched perfectly don’t you think?  Oh, and don’t forget a fabric beaded necklace-a snap to make and fun to wear.
