As you brave the heat or the humidity or the fog or the awesome summer storms where ever you are, be sure to set aside some time to make a unique capsule collection from your Summer 17 FashionKit!
For Summer17, we offer you five ‘take-it-easy’ pieces perfect for the beach, the patio, or Sunday brunch with friends.
Nothing is as effortless as a sundress, and the FK Poppy dress offers a myriad of design options. Woven linens and cottons in just about any print will give a great result. We highly recommend using a ruffler foot attachment for this style - it’s fun to use and makes the ruffling process easygoing.
One of summer’s essentials, the FK Sunhat has been designed with a very wide brim, especially at the back for extra sun coverage. It’s best to interface the woven self fabric to give a little body to this project. Grosgrain ribbon gives a professional finish to the hat band.
Craving an interesting take on the classic Tee? The FK Breezy Tee is gorgeous when styled in a drapey knit. With a looser fit, optional roll up sleeves, and a unique shoulder seam placement, you will really set yourself apart.
If your Breezy Tee is a bit sheer, consider making a Venus Top to wear underneath. This piece can be made as a true lingerie piece using powermesh and stretch lace. Alternatively, consider tech or swimsuit fabrics which give plenty of versatility.
The fifth piece in the collection is the skort - perfect for the sporting life and super comfortable. Another stretch piece in the collection, it doesn’t require too much yardage or too much time to make.
With this Summer17 FashionKit release, we wish you the joy of creating and encourage you to carve out the me-time to make some special items for yourself before summer gets away. Kits are shipping now and we can't wait to see what you make with your next FashionKit!
