Summer is one of my favorite seasons – the outdoors, light clothes, the beach, florals, vacations and what not!
A season full of fun and adventures.
Here are some lovely Summer Fashion options:
Collectique describes them as, “Casual and elegant look, a vintage cream colored paper hat and white sun hat. Charming worn with the rims down or up. Nice versatile elegant shapes.”
Natasha from bythecrochetbug says, “This vest is made with Irish crochet technique which is a very old art of crocheting.Here motifs are made first which are then joined together with delicate crochet mesh.These pieces are very light and lacy perfect for summer. Irish crochet is a method which produces very delicate and beautiful fabric which lasts almost forever. As any damaged motif can be simply be removed and replaced. No two Irish crochet pieces are the same.”
Sue from Greenbriarcreations says, “This little girls pinafore was one of the original items when I started my shop two years ago. The front features a really cute flower basket dress scarf. The rest of the shirt is a cool cotton gingham in Dorothy Gale blue! Perfect for summer!”
Mow from MONIBU says, “We live in a world where image and outer beauty is more important than inner beauty. This collection is a tribute to all women that we don’t have a body 10 but we are great people.”
Amy from BeadsandThreadsbyAmy Says, “I purchased this pattern to create a small bag for my niece’s birthday. I filled it with all sorts of “girly” things- lip gloss, fingernail polish, lotion. It turned out so well that I decided to create them for gifts for my teacher’s aides and friends. Depending on the length strap you choose, they are perfect for a variety of uses- passports and boarding passes while traveling, a small purse for the bare necessities, a make-up bag, a camera bag, etc. I have quite the stash of fabrics, and they are totally customizable (and personalized at no extra charge).”
NoveltyandThings says,” I am a sucker for things vintage especially vintage fashion and houseware. As for vintage fashion prints and bright colors are among my favorite picks. These remind me of my summer beach vacations airy and care free.”
ChickenJungle says, “I’ve always liked to make patchwork using small bits of fabric, incorporating things like sequins, buttons, beads, vintage lace…the possibilities are endless. Blue denim and sequins are an irresistible combination. I made this patchwork bag using blue denim jeans as the body, and for the front pocket I made this quilted patchwork Greek wave in watery blue. The sequins on the front and around the straps make it glitter like water in sunlight. When I made this, I envisioned a swimming pool I had seen long ago – a pool with this wave pattern in a blue tile mosaic around the rim. I also thought of ocean waves and the beach.”
Rose from Rosepetalsjewelry says, “I found these white jade beads at a street market in Turkey. I love white as a background and knew I would be flooded with ideas for them. This is just one of the many pieces I’ve made with them.”
Have a lovely Summer Everyone!
