The heat wave has finally arrived! Bottles of sun cream have been dusted off, the smell of barbecues is filling the air and the sound of ice clinking in glasses is like music to our ears. Welcome back the sunshine in style with these Simplicity patterns.
Let's kick things off with the little ones! Create baby a one-of-a-kind outfit with Simplicity 8142. Whether you're at the beach, eating ice-cream in the park or simply enjoying the garden at home, this cute romper, hat and bloomer set make for the perfect set of staples for your children's summer wear.
Matching mother-daughter jumpsuits? Yes please! Sew up Simplicity 8146 for these adorable outfits that are perfect to while away the afternoons spent outdoors that stretch through to the cooler summer evenings. Use punchy prints to make a real seasonal statement, and be sure not to forget dolly either!
When the sun is shining, kids want to rush outside and play. Stitch Simplicity 8148 for a selection of casual dresses in a variety of lengths, that girls can throw on in the morning to take them through those long, hot summer days in the garden.
When the heat is turned up, free and flowing always wins. Try Simplicity 8125 to channel the relaxed boho look. And with a variety of lengths, necklines and details, you can spread the summer spirit your way.
We know that just because the sun is out, it doesn't mean the end of a working day! If your summer work wardrobe is in need of a vital update, try sewing up your own loose-fitting blouses with Simplicity 8131 and combine with Simplicity 8134 for some relaxed trousers to match.
A shirt is an essential for both guys and gals' wardrobes for the warmer months. Get your necessities covered by saying 'Aloha!' to Simplicity New Look 6197, and go all out by making in a classic Hawaiian print to get you into the tropical mood.
If vintage is your thing, we've got something for you too! Try Simplicity 8130 for a 1950's style crop top – the perfect go-to for those summer festivals. Make in a classic gingham or bright floral fabric, and perhaps top with a silky headscarf for a true vintage vibe.
