Patterns: Literally any day dress pattern, vintage, indie, or big 4. Go wild!
Patterns: Closet Case Files' Bombshell is a retro-inspired blogger favorite, or try Named's Beverly Twisted Bikini or Papercut's Soma for more modern looks. The new lisette for Butterick swim patterns 6360 and 6358, are both adorable as well!
Patterns: I have the Coachella shorts pattern but haven't made them yet--they seem perfect for a faux-romper like Ada Spragg's though. Other favorites include Katy & Laney's Tap Shorts, Sewaholic's Thurlows, or the (freeeee) City Gym shorts pattern by Purl Soho.
I have my pattern all picked out (shh, it's a surprise) and as long as my muslin isn't too heinous, y'all will be seeing a lovely new dress gracing these pages sometime soon! What are you thinking of making for these first days of summer? Do you have a whole capsule planned, or just a few little things?
ps: psa from your librarian! your library totally has audiobooks--maybe even available streaming on your phone--and this is such a great money saver, as those things are expensive and rarely do you listen to them more than once!
