Currently lusting after

Ahh, Pinterest! The bane of my life crafter’s best friend!

I thought it would be nice to include an occasional round-up of what I’d like to make, considering Pinterest plays a huge part in inspiring my sewing choices. So here’s the first one. There’s definitely a theme going on too by the way. This summer heatwave has got me dreaming of exposing as much skin in my makes as is morally possible.

Backless dresses


I just love the colour of this dress and the sweet circle skirt. This one is hopefully in the planning already.


This one is really nice too. I love the lilac colour and the bow is a little less obvious than in the first dress so is more wearable.


A deep v-neck back will always make my heart a-flutter and I adore Republique du Chiffon‘s patterns already. This one’s definitely a winner!


A special mention goes out to the above which isn’t a backless dress, but is very wearable during the summer. And I adore the picnic blanket feel of the dress overall.

Loose fitting garments



I’ve grouped these together as I can imagine making an amalgamation of the three. I really like the buttons on the first one, the pockets of the second and the colour of the third, but they’re all great loose-fitting dresses.


The floral print, the gathered skirt and the straps all make this a lovely dress. I also love the longer skirt and will be replicating this (in a floral cotton obvs) soon, complete with a midi skirt I think.

Open-back tops


An open back blouse is the perfect casual wear in this hot weather and this one would be great made up in a lighter colour.


I love this tiny pocket tank pattern hack, especially with its beautiful back detail. I think this would work really well in a floral print.

What do you think? Have any of these inspired you too?
