Get That Relaxed California Vibe in Your Wardrobe

Bring some California cool to your closet with these zero-waste patterns.

Breezy SoCal fashion is a summer staple no matter where you live.

Dear Sewing Superstar,

There’s something about that southern California style that can help you feel as relaxed as you look. Loose fitting tops and breezy skirts that sway with the trees in a soft summer wind lend an air of easy living to your day.

The two patterns here gather that sunshiny vibe and bring it to your lazy afternoons at the cafe or your busy days running errands. Whatever you have in store, this summer staple is right there with you.

Here’s a closer look at the Sunny SoCal Relaxed Summer Tee and Sunny SoCal Reversible Panel Skirt.

Flattering, comfortable, and zero-waste? You get it all with the Sunny SoCal Relaxed Summer Tee. Designed by Don Morin, this relaxed-fit tee brings boho vibes and complete comfort. The square neckline, loose fit, and cropped length make it an excellent option for wearing over a tank top. Best of all, though, is this easy pattern will only take you about three hours to make. You could pull out the sewing machine now and have a fun, cute top to wear to dinner tonight!

Even better, this pattern is easy to personalize. Round off the square corners of the hemline, add side slits or pockets, or add elastic at the waist to create a more form-fitting piece.

Whether you decide on a tee or a babydoll tank, the perfect skirt to go with it is just a few stitches away. The Sunny SoCal Reversible Panel Skirt, also from designer Don Morin, is a figure-flattering paneled skirt with a lovely wrap-around feature at the waist. You don’t even need a printable pattern for this simple skirt, as you’ll be marking your cutting lines directly onto the fabric. Choose fun prints and solids to create two unique designs in one skirt!

Of course, both patterns come with detailed instructions. You’ll get advice on selecting fabrics and fabric patterns, plus 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.
