Vogue’s new Summer Collection is now available.
Summer is just on the horizon. Thoughts of sunny skies and warm breezes fill my mind. For this summer, I’m longing to make some great warm-weather dresses. Looking through Vogue’s newest collection has inspired me and I’m just itching to sew up a few!
Koos van der Akker’s top and skirt, pattern 1244, simply sings of summer. Made with his signature collage style, this pattern requires a minimum of five different fabrics. Beautiful coordinating silk prints make this lovely style elegant and unforgettable.
Key Unger’s dress, pattern 1241, has a simple and flattering silhouette. Stylish pleats are featured at the neckline and fabulous tummy-disguising gathers are found at the waist.
DKNY has two great easy-to-make summer dresses. Pattern 1236 is a loose-fitting dress with neckline pleats and a fashionable belt to match. Make it in a lightweight cotton or linen for a cool casual look. Pattern 1250 has a pretty draped cowl neckline and cut-on cap sleeves. This is a great solution for the sewer who wants a cute summer dress with a little arm coverage.
These are just a few great summer looks available from Vogue—be sure to check out their complete summer collection.
