For me 2020 ended up being a year of sewing more comfy clothes for myself. Above are some of the clothing I sewed.
First is a Black fit and flare dress, in a mid weight bamboo/spandex knit, with a high-low hem, and diagonal pockets at waist. This dress has a fully lined bodice, and ended up being a bit shorter and more fitted than I’d intended. The skirt is breezy enough that I have to wear leggings or shorts under it, but overall I was really pleased with it and generally felt cute wearing it in the spring and fall.
Next is a Plum fit and flare dress, in a mid weight bamboo/spandex knit, with diagonal pockets at waist. For this dress I chose to not line the bodice to make it lighter for hot summer days. I am very pleased with how comfortable it is. The Violet fit and flare dress is almost the same, I just tweaked the cut to make it slightly looser at the waist. I really enjoyed this on the hottest days of summer.
I am a big fan of button down shirt dresses. This Black button down tunic, was sewn in a lightweight linen, with diagonal pockets at waist. I generally wear it with leggings or shorts. The Purple button down dress, was sewn in a lightweight linen, with side seam pockests. I was pleased with the overall fit, but hadn’t realized how see through this linen was.
I sewed two knit skirts, one in black and one in plum. They are each in a mid weight bamboo/spandex french terry, with diagonal pockets, and a wide waistband. These were great for layering with leggings in the winter months.
And finally I sewed a Purple tiered skirt, in a lightweight rayon, with a gathered elastic waist. This skirt was fun to wear on really hot summer days.
