Mood Board of the Month: Melting Point

By now it should be nice and toasty outside, assuming you live in the northern hemisphere. Enjoy these warm ideas for fun summer sewing!

These days you can throw a rock and hit three people wearing a jumpsuit. Vogue 9116 carries that vintage 70's vibe, but you could also cut it short for an updated look. You might want a more classic look for the office, but still want to stay cool in the heat. Colette Patterns' Myrtle dress can be made in a knit or woven, giving you lots of options but plenty of work-appropriate coverage.

Sticking with our spring color scheme of purple and navy, try this navy cotton jersey, from Organic Cotton Plus, for your jumpsuit. A dark, solid color is a safe bet for a bold style like a jumpsuit. You can definitely get away with a fun pattern on the dress, like this floral knit from Emma One Sock.

This post is not sponsored by any pattern designer or fabric seller. I wish. I just have too much time on my hands and love planning wardrobes! Check out my Mood Board of the Month Pinterest board for all the links to my inspiration. And to those of you who have asked for a tutorial on making these mood boards, I hear ya! Hopefully I'll have one ready for you this month. It's easier than you think!
