When the weather brings on the sweat, there isn’t any time to faff around with complicated garments or several working pieces. Simple clothing pieces for hot weather are a must in my wardrobe. With our guide to beginner-friendly summer looks, you’ve found your one-stop shop for simple, trendy patterns that get the job done.
Effortless dressing is sometimes overcomplicated, so the ideas below are here to revive the theory that effortless dressing is effortless. Bonus: Sewing the looks is a lot easier than you might think, which means they are suitable for beginners and don’t take long to come together. True sewing gems are those that can be hacked into many variations, such as hem length and sleeve lengths. These alterations are simple enough and worth the calculations if they suit your style.
Looking for simple options for tops? Look no further than a basic tee and tank top. Incorporate other garments or accessories to take simple patterns to an elevated level, like the Lavender Tee or Biker Shorts hacks. Try the Cadia Zero Waste Pattern for simple sewing that won’t add to your fabric stash.
Comfortable bottoms are another must for summer, so the Piper Shorts and the Cassia Skirt are both simple and easy to wear. The Piper shorts include elastic for a perfect and adjustable fit. Another simple option for bottoms: the Cassia Skirt can easily be adjusted to a longer length for a slightly different result.
Simple summer patterns offer one less thing to worry about when schedules are busy, and temperatures are scorching. However, I hope this post reminds you that simple doesn’t have to mean basic (especially if you’re eyeing one of those gorgeous dress patterns).
