Sew the trends: Summer staples

Do you ever find yourself walking through the high-street shop, saying to yourself, “I could make that”? Us too and as makers, we’re lucky that we can take stylish shapes from the high-street and turn them into a garment perfect for our body shape.

No more confusing ready to wear sizing or scrambling around the shops for the ‘latest piece’, here we give you a round up of some of our favourite fashion from the high-street, paired with the perfect fabric and pattern combination – enjoy!

Dungarees – Monki

Dungarees really aren’t going anywhere are they? We love this stonewash style from Monki and we can already see the most perfect me-made pair when we combine our 8 oz Soft Washed Denim and the Tilly and the Buttons ‘Mila’ Dugarees. Simply layer up with a basic tee and trainers to achieve a super-casual look.

Short Sleeve Blazer – In The Style

Hot tip, short sleeve blazers are big news for this season – tapping into the seventies trend we all love. This boxy, oversize silhouette is perfect for any body type and using the Nina Lee ‘Richmond’ blazer as a base, combined with our beautiful, ‘new in’ Sevenberry Duckegg Cotton, we think this look will be a nice easy one to recreate.

Leopard print dress – All Saints

This leopard print dress from All Saints is just beautiful – perfect for pairing with Chunky boots in the day time and heels in the evening – plus leopard print is a neutral too, so you’ll wear it forever right? Save yourself some serious pennies by pairing our Untamed leopard print cotton with the Nina Lee Kew Dress.

Linen stripe sun dress – & Other Stories

Even though the sun is a little..intermittent at the moment, we can still dream of holidays and summer dresses. This one from & Other Stories is dreamy and we particularly love the way the pockets are slightly contrasting. To recreate this one, pair our super soft Lilac Stripe Cotton Linen with the Tilly and The Buttons ‘Seren’ Dress.

Printed shirt dress – ASOS

Midi shirt dresses are big news at the moment and we are fans – worn with trainers now and with tights and boots in the winter, this might be one of the most versatile garments in your wardrobe. This bold and beautiful Ava Peachskin paired with The Sew Over It ‘Vintage Shirt Dress’ is the perfect way to recreate this on-trend style.

Linen Shirt dress – H&M

Last but not least, a plain white shirt is always a wardrobe classic and this season it’s all about linen so it’s time to get sewing. To recreate this versatile style, pair the Closet Case Patterns ‘Kalle’ Shirt Dress with our Washed Rayon Linen. Not a fan of white, or cant be trusted to wear such a light shade like us? This stunning fabric comes in a whole host of colourful shades too – we think we’ll have one of each please!
