Women’s sewing patterns for summer: Shirt dresses, oriental style blouses and much more

When the good weather arrives, all true sewing lovers get the urge to sew cool, comfortable women’s patterns, and better still if they are fashionable ones.

Shirt dresses, oriental style blouses or smocks are our favourites. Therefore, we are going to give you a few ideas to unleash your imagination. So you can start thinking right now about the clothes you are going to make for your summer wardrobe. We recommend using poplin and jersey fabrics. However, not forgetting about the awesome novelty of the season; our lightweight denim fabric, with that special washed blue handle.

First of all, we are starting with the shirt dress, a perfect choice for sewing in poplin or denim. This is a basic piece with a full front button fastening and side pockets. Additionally, this pattern also gives you the option to make the shirt version. It looks fantastic when made up with either of the Always Frida or Arty Ethnic poplin fabrics.
