Summer Sewing

While in Colorado this summer, I stumbled upon a quaint yarn/ fabric store that was small but mighty. There were wonderful wool blends of yarn in so many amazing colors, unique fabric lines and sewing patterns that could not be found at traditional sewing stores. I found a simple frock pattern that looked appealing and just finished making it mine this past weekend. 

Simple frock top.

There were two sewing options; I chose to make the one with no buttons down the front + added some floral pockets. I am very happy with the fit. The swoop collar is different than other frocks I've made in the past and the length is perfect.

My fabrics are quilting cottons. Easy to sew and oh so breezy on these hot + humid days. Because there are no zippers or button holes, this would be a great sewing project for even a beginner seamstress. 

And soon these sweet frocks of mine will be layered with cardigans + scarves for the Fall weather. Yay! So versatile and colorful for more than one season! 

Happy Monday to you, Sweets!
