It’s time for summer! Enjoy exciting new skirts, shirts, and more in the May issue!
Dear Sewing Superstar,
I know it’s not “officially” summer, but things definitely start feeling sunny once May rolls into town. And we all know that Memorial Day is the start of summer, even if the calendar would have us believe we have to wait until June! What’s better than a gorgeous May day, full of blue skies, sunshine, and brilliant flowers blooming everywhere?
Okay, maybe there is one thing that’s better. How about some bold new colors and patterns in your wardrobe and around your home? That’s what the May issue of We Like Sewing is all about. We’re exploring bright colors, cheerful combinations, and light fabrics so you have everything you need for summer, whether you plan to travel or entertain close to home.
Long, lazy days and warm, peaceful evenings are here (or they will be soon) and you’ll be ready with the fun-loving patterns in this issue of We Like Sewing. Here’s a preview of some of the excitement you’ll find in this issue.
You don’t have to play tennis to appreciate the chic French Rose Pleated Tennis Skirt, from designer Mary Beth Temple. As with so many of Mary’s patterns, this tennis skirt looks fabulous, but it’s not as complicated as it appears. I love how the rich rose color is reminiscent of those late spring flowers beloved for their beauty and fragrance.
With a mid-thigh length, this skirt is preppy and flirty, while the box pleats and back zip maintain an air of formality. Keep it light with a nice cotton twill or go for something a little heavier with denim fabric. Either way, you’ll look relaxed and fabulous!
If you’re looking for some fantastic footwear to go with your tennis skirt, be sure to take a look at the Sepia Sketches Espadrilles Tutorial, also from Mary Beth Temple. When it comes to summer fashion, nothing beats this classic Catalonian staple. Step into Mediterranean style with this pattern that blends machine and hand-sewing techniques.
Take a look at this month’s cover image and you’ll see the Over the Rainbow Table Runner Pattern from Janice Bailor. Your home deserves a summer makeover, too, right!? This playful pattern, with a vivid rainbow and cloud design comes in just over 13 inches wide and 39 inches long, and is sure to make your table the envy of your house guests. This intermediate-level quilting project makes a lovely wall hanging, too, if you prefer it as a decorative piece.
Summer is sailing the waves of the season and will be here before you know it. And these projects are just the thing for summer fun. You’ll find these patterns and more in the May issue of We Like Sewing. Each of these patterns, and all the patterns in the We Like Sewing Library come with detailed instructions, plus advice on selecting fabrics and fabric patterns, as well as tips on sizing. Find out how to plan for different lengths and learn how to mark and cut your pattern depending on the dimensions you choose for your project.
