Summery makes

I’ve been sorting through my almost-forgotten vintage fabrics and unearthed a bevy of lightweight cottons perfect for the upcoming heat wave.  I mixed and matched to create some adorable dresses based on my new dress design.  Cotton chintz has been filling my head with all of its magical sweat-wicking and lightweight summery-ness, so I may have went a little overboard with its pastel variations, but I am pretty pleased with the results.  In fact, I’m actually keeping two of the samples, which I never do!  Usually I am so tired of sewing and perfecting the pattern, that I never want to see the sample again.  But oh how seersucker and floral together make me blush.

Without further adieu, here are the new dresses and tops I’ve designed and sewed for what will surely be a hot, hot summer.

Lightweight cottons (and mixing and matching summer patterns) just really have me spellbound lately.

I would so appreciate your wise and fashionable critiques!

Bisous.
