And here are the two new quick-to-sew patterns in this issue:
Adelaide is a simple shift dress with a snap front closure, that is ideal for spring and summer. Sewn up in chambray or linen, this dress is the perfect throw on garment for the warm days ahead.
Sydney is a wrap-style layering piece, that perfectly tops off a sleeveless frock. Use a light weight woven like lawn or rayon to make a breezy topper for your summer sun dresses.
