Outfit 59/62: Jersey Dress and Espadrilles

Here's that super-easy jersey dress again. It's from Boden, and they seem to carry them every year in different patterns. The fabric is light enough to wear in the summer, but thick enough that you don't need a slip. For me, it's too low-cut to wear without a camisole, but some women probably wouldn't need one. 

Next week, I'll start gradually adding in a few new pieces for fall. During the month of September, I'll keep wearing my summer capsule and throw in my warmer clothes as it cools off. I've ordered some things online, and I'll tell you about them as they arrive and I have a chance to try them out. I love shopping online since I don't have to take my little kids with me and try to keep them occupied while I try things on. The drawback is, when something doesn't fit or otherwise isn't right, I can't just leave it in the dressing room! Free returns are the at-home shopper's best friend. 

I've also sewn a couple of pieces for fall! Here's one: 

a blue sweatshirt, made with Grainline Studio's Linden pattern. I want to make an olive green one, too - probably one size smaller. (I'm also wearing my homemade chambray skirt and my new light blue slip-on Pikolinos oxfords.) 

I'll show you the other top I made, after I snap a photo of it. I've got (lots!) more sewing projects planned, but making time to do it is the hard part. That sweatshirt only took a couple hours, and it was really easy - I didn't have to re-do anything or figure out any tricky sewing techniques. It was a great motivational project. I love to sew when everything just goes smoothly and the instructions are clear! 

I hope you have a great weekend!
