Simple Summer Sewing II


Yesterday’s post was all about the skirts.  Today I’ve got some simple go-to tops for you, plus my second take on my newest favorite pattern hack.


These are pieces I know I will grab again and again.


The Santa Fe Top from Hey June has quickly become the most worn top in my wardrobe.  I’ve got a couple I made in testing that were getting lots of action and I’ve been itching to make more all summer.


I love being able to use small scraps and to mix fabrics in this view.  I had just enough of this gorgeous floral rayon spandex from Pretty Posh Prints for these sleeves.


I love, love the flowiness of this top.  It’s perfect to throw on with jeans or in my case it’s usually jean cut-offs.


Another go-to tee pattern for me is the Neptune Tee from See Kate Sew.  I just love the basic version so, so much!


In a yummy cotton lycra from Raspberry Creek Fabrics I’ve been hoarding away, it really couldn’t be any more dreamy!  It’s another great tee to just throw on to run errands or chill at the park.


Surprise, surprise!  I just had to make another Neptune dress.  My first I have deemed my ‘naked dress’, as in I feel like I’m in my birthday suit it is so comfy!!!


This super soft rayon spandex makes THE perfect easy tee dress.  It’s to die for, I tell ya’!

(I got this in a Girl Charlee Knitfix ages ago but So Sew English has had it in stock lately!)


I’m seriously not a dress girl but I could wear these EVERY day!  And the best part is- come night time I’m already in my pj’s 😉

Well, that’s my real summer wardrobe for you.  I’ve got the glamorous job of shuttling kids around all day or cleaning up after them if I happen to leave them on their own for too long (anything over five minutes, right moms? ;).  Comfort is the key and I love my new pieces!

  1. What are the differences between the Neptune Tee and the Union Street Tee? Do I really need both?


    1. Hi there Amanda! The big difference to me is the Neptune Tee is a bit narrower in the shoulders. It comes with cut-out options that make it fun too. It doesn’t have a v-neck option or multiple sleeve lengths like the Union. Do you need another tee pattern? Probably not but it’s still a fun one to have 😉


  2. I have that floral and it is so gorgeous I’m afraid to cut into it. The Santa Fe is definitely one of the patterns in really want to add to my collection.
