Remember, my main goal is designing the Social Sew link-up was to make the theme narrow enough that someone unsure of what to make next could find some guidance, but broad enough that someone with sewing plans could find a way to make their pieces fit. If you're a bit stumped on what to make for this month's theme let me suggest...
Patterns: The Closet Case Files Sophie is undoubtedly the swimwear pattern of the summer (and what I hope to make!), but the Named Beverly and Lisette for Butterick 6358 are favorites of mine as well!
Patterns: I can't even pretend to suggest the best patterns since I have no experience in lingerie sewing... but from what I've heard the Watson is a great beginner bra, and the two styles from Orange Lingerie are popular. I have MakeBra DL03 and all the needed supplies, but haven't quite had the guts to get started! Finally, Maddie's new line for Simplicity is coming out asap--I'm super jealous of her but I can't be too mad since the patterns are so cute!! ;)
Patterns: Grainline Studio Alder, Named Inari, Megan Nielsen Eucalypt, or any number of other simply designed dresses.
So what about you? Are you soaking up all the summer you can get or are you planning your fall capsule?? (Or are you Australian?) What are you planning on making for the Hot Hot Heat Social Sew?
ps: send me good vibes for trying something new!!
