Summer Sewing at Make


The Great British summertime is once again creaking into action in the South West and at Make we are busily planning our summer wardrobes.

 Summer is the most fabulous time for Sewers, we can get really excited about showing off all of our wonderful makes in the best summer colours. You know we have to be prepared for when the sun does eventually shine in the Southwest!

Top of my summer to do list right now are these beauties..

The clever ladies at Deer and Doe have come up with a summer top with structure that could be worn at work or home with some lovely detailing!

My fabric pick for the Datura would be one of our chic Atelier Brunette fabrics for that extra dose of French sophistication.



 If you want a versatile pattern that's daring yet oh so practical at the same time why not try Tilly and the Buttons Marigold jumpsuit pattern.



I love the fact that this isn't just a jumpsuit, it can also be a pair of lightweight trousers too. Two for one and if you make this is a sweet soft rayon fabric it will feel like you're wearing secret pyjamas...who doesn't  want to be as comfy as possible while mooching about on their hols, especially on my frequent staycations!

I've been oggling these soft fabrics from our Make Basics range for the Marigold pattern, super soft and lovely to sew with too!



I also like to include a good basic tee in my summer wardrobe that you can wear with everything or use to layer up on chilly sea breezy days. I'm really can't wait to get my hands on the Grainline Studio Scout Tee pattern.

Check out our beautiful range of summer weight cottons from Merchant and Mills, we are all totally in love with the indigo dyed range at the mo!
