Summer 2016 Style Inspiration


It's that time again when I pull lots of images together from ideas that have been floating around my brain as I work on my summer sewing projects. The heat has returned to Denver and I have dusted off my straw hats and cotton sun dresses for another summer of vintage and safari styles. Want a look at what's inspiring me for this summer?

White eyelet, I must obtain some white eyelet!



I love this gingham check skirt, wish I could find fabric like this!




I love the style-lines of this dress!

Circle skirts! I already want another one (perhaps in red?)


New jodhpurs are at the top of my list of must makes for this summer, I need to make some adjustments to last year's pattern!


As usual I am dreaming someone would take me on safari...


I just love 40's dresses, these ladies look great!

I've gotta find more parasols!

Where can I get one of these tilted ivory 1930's hats?

  1. A million yeses to everything, the white eyelet dresses massively included. I've been hunting for a vintage (or vintage appropriate one that comes past the knee) for many years now to no avail (in my size and price range). It's surprising really, if one stops to think about it, that eyelet isn't something we see more of in the repro world, given it's long standing popularity and fairly generous usage during the mid-twentieth century. Best of luck with your own hunt, and if I find a good repro/vintage style modern source for such, I will be sure to let you know right away.

    Big hugs,
    ♥ Jessica

    1. Thanks Jessica! I never feel like I can wear white, being devoted to the slimming properties of black clothes, but I may make an exception if the right eyelet fabric comes my way :)

  2. I am drinking these images in, hopefully I will absorb some of the inspiration! Safari things seem to be popular this year, some of the repro brands have done safari collections. Best accessorised with a live elephant! x

    1. I never tire of the safari look, I always want more khaki everything once summer arrives :) I'll work on acquiring the elephant too, even if only for one outfit photoshoot ;)
