Summer sewing plans on mahlicadesigns

I usually plan out my sewing schedule ahead in three month bursts. It helps me to prioritize what I want to make for the next season and keeps me on track in many ways. Instead of my typically well planned out and detailed sewing schedule, the last months I have really struggled to put my sewing plan together.

I’ve just accepted that my typical method is not going to happen right now and I should give this just winging it thing a try. I do have some very loose ideas to use my pattern and fabric stash for summer. Maybe you’ll see these this summer maybe you won’t.

Summer Tops & Blouses:

I’m most excited to sew up Simplicity 8386 that I just picked up. I have a cute jersey with zebras that would make it fun or maybe I’ll keep it more sophisticated in a solid color.


A few woven tanks would be great and I have several stash patterns to try.

McCalls 6751 but not sure how to pull this off with a bra. I think I’ll need to make a bandeau to wear with it.

The Tate Top from Workroom Social

or the Tortola from Sis Boom Patterns

Summer Bottoms:

I’m in need of shorts in some basic colors. The Chi Town Chinos are my favorite shorts pattern right now. I’ve already made up a pair in mustard and oat this month, but want a few more pairs.

What’s on your sewing plan for summer?

As always, thanks for reading today.
