Summer Sewing for Myself

This year I haven’t sewn much for Summer and I must confess, that later, I slightly regretted it. But, it is what it is and there’s not much I can do now, except sharing with you the few things that I actually made.

As I was going to spend the Summer in hot, sunny Portugal (already miss it…) I needed light tops and the Ogden Cami by True Bias seemed just what I was looking for. Indeed, as it turned out, it was just perfect!

The first top, I made using a beautiful viscose crepe from Atelier Brunette that I bought from Maçãs d’Amor. It is a pleasure to wear and so much easier to work with than I expected! I really expect to wear it during Autumn with a cardigan and a scarf.

I made both tops in size 0, without modifications. This one you probably saw already with my Sandbridge skirt. Perfect combo for summer, if you ask me! 😉

The second Ogden Cami I made using a dreamy Les Fleurs rayon from Cotton and Steel that I got from here, already over one year ago! It has been patiently waiting for the right project and I absolutely love it!

To go with this top, I also made a Dolores skirt from the Magazine La Maison Victor, that finally is available in the UK and in English! It took me some time to try this skirt length, just because I am not tall, but I really got into it now and enjoy wearing it.

Another top I made was the Alize by Atelier Scammit. How could I ignore these lovely ruffles?

I made the top in size 34, according to my chest measurements and once again, I used a viscose crepe from Atelier Brunette, also from Maçãs d’Amor.

It was my first time tring a Atelier Scammit pattern and I must say I really liked the fit. It’s fitted where it needs to be but loose which make it so comfortable yet stylish. I should have made a few more…

Now that I’ve shared my Summer sewing it is time to start my Autumn projects. 😊

  1. Oh Maria! I looooooooove all three of these tops! So perfect for summer and so incredibly pretty! Now that summer is almost over (hahaha) I want to make the cami! The Alize top is so sweet, too. Love the ruffles!

    • Thank you so much Emi 🙂 In my opinion the Cami is perfect even for Autumn. I intend to wear mine with a cardigan 😉 The Alize top is lovely! The ruffles are just perfect (in my opinion of course), not too big or too small!

  2. Oh you have been busy! I know I say it everytime, but I do mean that I love everything you make! I am almost seduced by the Cami, but I am worried it is not Toddler-proof (yes, a toddler with a capital T!!!). Love your Dolores. I made one last week, it was such a fun make, although I had to unpick the waistband on mine and make it considerably shorter and narrower. I agree, the Alize has just the right amount of ruffle 🙂 Such a sweet top!
