It’s time to think about sewing your summer wardrobes, and I just recently recorded an episode of Sew & Tell podcast launching May 16th all about summer sewing! Looking at the runway shows for the season as well as trend reports like this one – it’s clear that summer 2019 is all about muted florals, relaxed silhouettes, and natural fabrics in neutral colors. I love this recap, and can’t wait until the summer weather approaches so I can start wearing all of these pieces. Read on to see how you can sew the trends…

Pattern Looks

Summer 19 Trends Knit Tank

This is ideal top to pair with all the high-waisted pants in your wardrobe. Think ribbed knits with a cropped hemline for this trend in everything from black to white.

Summer 19 Trends Slouchy Trousers

A high waist, some pleats, sewn in a lightweight breathable fabric like linen is the perfect summer pant for this year.

Summer 19 Trends 80s Mini

It wouldn’t be the eighties without a statement sleeve and a sweetheart neckline!

Summer 19 Trends Summer Suit

An easy breezy two-piece look sewn in a natural fiber perfect for a summer business meeting.

Summer 19 Trends Statement Blouse

Not your average button up blouse – the blouse of summer 2019 has that extra something special.

Summer 19 Trends Leopard Dress

Slip into a sleek ’90s-esque dress sewn in a cheetah leopard print to both look and keep cool for the summer.

Summer 19 Trends Little White Dress

Forget the little black dress – this trend is all about the little white dress. Just make sure not to wear as a guest o a summer wedding!

Now about the accessories! This summer bucket hats are back and heels are getting closer to the ground. Also opt for natural beach bags and don’t forget about a hair tie – better yet it should be attached to a scrunchie.

What trend will you be sewing for summer 2019?

Happy Sewing!
