This year I haven’t sewn much for Summer and I must confess, that later, I slightly regretted it. But, it is what it is and there’s not much I can do now, except sharing with you the few things that I actually made.
As I was going to spend the Summer in hot, sunny Portugal (already miss it…) I needed light tops and the Ogden Cami by True Bias seemed just what I was looking for. Indeed, as it turned out, it was just perfect!
The first top, I made using a beautiful viscose crepe from Atelier Brunette that I bought from Maçãs d’Amor. It is a pleasure to wear and so much easier to work with than I expected! I really expect to wear it during Autumn with a cardigan and a scarf.
I made both tops in size 0, without modifications. This one you probably saw already with my Sandbridge skirt. Perfect combo for summer, if you ask me! 😉
The second Ogden Cami I made using a dreamy Les Fleurs rayon from Cotton and Steel that I got from here, already over one year ago! It has been patiently waiting for the right project and I absolutely love it!
To go with this top, I also made a Dolores skirt from the Magazine La Maison Victor, that finally is available in the UK and in English! It took me some time to try this skirt length, just because I am not tall, but I really got into it now and enjoy wearing it.
Another top I made was the Alize by Atelier Scammit. How could I ignore these lovely ruffles?
I made the top in size 34, according to my chest measurements and once again, I used a viscose crepe from Atelier Brunette, also from Maçãs d’Amor.
It was my first time tring a Atelier Scammit pattern and I must say I really liked the fit. It’s fitted where it needs to be but loose which make it so comfortable yet stylish. I should have made a few more…
Now that I’ve shared my Summer sewing it is time to start my Autumn projects. 😊
