Summer Style Preview: 15 Summer Sewing Patterns
Off-the-Shoulder Tops and Dresses
Bare shoulders are one of the most popular trends for summer 2017, and are the perfect compromise between showing a little skin, while still covering up. An easy way to elongate the neck, off-the-shoulder tops are a charming throwback to vintage starlets like Ava Gardner and Sophia Loren and are a great way to emphasize your decolletage.
Always popular for summer, nautical stripes are an excellent way to create a preppy Cape Cod vibe no matter where you live. Great for trips to the beach or for summer parties, nautical stripes are the best way to create a chic and expensive look for less.
Greenery may be Pantone’s Color of the Year, but bright yellow was everywhere on runways for this summer. The perfect way to inject some instant happiness into your wardrobe, a splash of bold yellow is an easy way to make a major style statement.
If you love everything feminine, then you’ll adore these patterns in shades of shocking pink. The boldness of this color compliments any skin tone and is a fantastic way to add a little flirt factor to your summer wardrobe.
Saturday Night Fever
The 70s have been having a major moment on the runway for the past few years, but with these patterns, think less Brady Bunch and more Saturday Night Fever. Inspired by disco era glam, these 70s inspired sewing patterns are a great way to give vintage clothing a modern twist.
