It’s been hot, and our summer schedule is packed with play dates, visits to the sprinkler park, and trips to cooler indoor spots like the library when we need a break from the sun. That doesn’t leave a lot of time for sewing, but we can always sneak in a Lazy Days Skirt now and then when the sewing bug hits.
On the last day of school (just two weeks ago) we gathered S and a few of her classmates for a photo of some Lazy Day Skirts made using gorgeous Renaissance Ribbons and Moda fabrics (like Kate’s Spain’s upcoming collection, Cuzco). The skirts come together very quickly, which makes them a perfect summer sewing project. There are no pattern pieces, no seam allowances to finish, and the ribbon makes a neat and easy hem. But the girls don’t care about any of those details. They just love the bright colors, the soft ribbons, and the pretty patterns.
Are you finding time to sew this summer?
