Sewing – Summer Style

Standard

As they say, third time’s a charm.  I’ve made this pattern twice now in cotton florals and I decided to step up my game with a piece of hot-fuchsia linen.  I must say,  I am very happy with the results.  I like the understated sophistication of a linen dress for summer; it’s easily accessorized up or down making it extremely versatile.  A pretty summer sandal, the right jewelry and it’s perfect for an evening out.  Or, slide into some comfy flip-flops and go grocery shopping in style.  Either way it works, making it a great addition to my summer wardrobe.

I’m seeing a little black dress on the horizon.

    • Hi Gabrielle,

      Thank you for all your nice comments.

      I revisited your blog and it is truly a work of art; the photographs are so very beautiful. I love flowers, gardens and beautiful landscapes.

      I like to garden a little myself and have put together a video of what I see in the summer time in my backyard. You might like to watch it at:

      Thank you again and I look forward to seeing more or your lovely blog entries.
