Sewing for Summer Time

I have a few trips scheduled for this summer, and a few of them are for much warmer and more humid climates than what I’m used to. And when I started to plan outfits to take on my travels, I realized that most of what I have for summer, wouldn’t work with humidity! A lot of my summer clothes are synthetic fabrics and longer sleeves, which works nicely in the dry Utah summer, but are just about useless for the humidity of Texas and Florida. So I got some knit and some challis I had on my stash, and I sewed, sewed, sewed! Non-stop for a couple of weekends till I had a few more tops, bottoms, and dresses to take on my trips. And those are the pieces I’m sharing with you all today!

My first trip planned is for Orlando, which means I’ll be out and about on parks and malls, and will need as little fabric touching my body as possible. So I made some flowy blouses out of my challis, and a dress on a size up so it won’t be too form fitting. And to go with all of my new breezy tops, I made a new mabel pencil skirt with some really nice knit I had. It all came together very quickly! Now all I need is to report backĀ if all of those outfits wore the right choice! If not, at least they’ll still look great for the Utah summer!

  • Everything here is amazing! I have the Sutton blouse in my wishlist just waiting til funds permit and I love your version of it! A black polka dot skater dress is clearly a must make, as yours is so nice. But that Mabel? She’s AWESOMENESS
