Summer dressing ...

It's that time of year when I rev up my sewing machine and race through making new summer tops. If you haven't been introduced, let me share the ultimate easy-to-sew top. Meet the Wiksten style tank.

It can be made as a top, or easily elongated for a dress.  If you've been sewing for a while, you can make your own pattern in a jiffy. I've made several similar tanks like these and live in them all season long. But, you can also click here and buy the 'official' Wiksten pattern.

This year, I'm also attracted to some comfy linen dress designs that can take me from work to play with ease.

 

Above is the Eva dress pattern by Tessuti. I like the style and love the pockets!

Yeah, I'm in pocket lust mode. Linen, pockets, cool comfort ... that just about wraps up my current dress fascination.

Time to pull out the oodles of linens I purchased from Kathleen Sommers and get sewing!
