Simplicity: Summer Collection 2013
Shake up your summer wardrobe with Simplicity’s latest collection!
Pattern 1609 brings a classic twist back to summer in this misses’ Jiffy 1960’s vintage dress. The sleeveless, modern 1960’s A-line dress is constructed using only two main pattern pieces, which makes it simple to sew. The dress also features a center front seam, fitting darts, and back zipper with the added choice of either a scalloped collar, neck bow, or round neckline.
For a fun outfit that can take you from day to night try pattern 1611, a misses’ and miss-petite tank dress that has a back zip and can be made in different length variations. For an added twist, the maxi dress version can be made with either a sheer overlay or high low hem, or a sheer or contrast band can be added to the mini length for a knee length dress. Both are spectacular options to take the dress from the streets to a night time gathering.
Add some spunk to your daytime look with pattern 1613, a misses’ pullover hip-length, knit top with various sleeve options. The top has several embellishment choices to fit your style like a twist-front neckline, off-the-shoulder band neckline, supporting straps, or a cinched front. Each option creates a great way to stand out this summer.
The American Sewing Guild has created a look that’s perfect for the office or around town with pattern 1621. It has many views including a misses’ and plus size easy-to-sew pullover tank dress with hi-low hem, a tunic with elasticized waist band, or a cropped jacket with collar stand and pull string for a ruffled look. All of the pieces are easy to sew, so it’s great for beginners or for someone looking for a quick project.
