|Tomato Bisque Brushed Cotton, Silk Charmeuse-Dark Truffle, Summer Foliage
The long and lazy days of summer have begun but don’t let your style take a vacation! The mini wardrobe plan (MWP) for June has cool and confident garments that will keep you looking your best. The June MWP fabrics are Tomato Bisque Brushed Cotton, Summer Foliage and Silk Charmeuse-Dark Truffle. I’m mixing a few classic summer pieces with some trending styles to keep your look current. All fabrics are available from Sew Much Fabric.
The Tomato Bisque Brushed Cotton is soft and comfortable with a nice drape. It’s perfect for a chic, on-the-go look. I’ve paired this fabric with a stylish drawstring pant (Simplicity 1467), a pair of trending culottes (Vogue 9091) and a chic crop top (Burda Style 2/2015 #127).
I always like a touch of luxury and silk charmeuse in Dark Truffle is just that. It’s summer so a sleeveless tank top like Simplicity 1467 will work on its own for the weekend as well as underneath a jacket for the office. And a dress (Simplicity 6169) is always good to have for a last minute night out on the town.
Pulling it all together is Summer Foliage a beautiful silk and cotton blend. The fabric has slubs that run throughout adding some surface interest. A jacket (Butterick 6169) is always good for fending off the chill of the AC. A pair of shorts in this tropical print (McCalls 6930) is a summer must have, the skirt (Burda Style 2/2015 #109A) is great for Causal Friday and a crop top (Butterick 6183) keeps your summer look updated.
These garments can mix and match for lots of summer activities.
