Picture: Inspiration Issue 53

No one is going around in jeans and trainers anymore. As a nod to the new fashion for neater, posher clothes, this issue features some suitable glad rags that are bound to be new to your wardrobe. Long skirts are now worn during the day, with the choice of shoes making for a more casual or dressy look – elegant with pumps, but suitable
for everyday wear when teamed with sneakers. Or how about a
light-and-airy embroidered cotton-with-silk dress? And if this frock isn’t chic enough for your next evening summer party, we’ve got a much posher outfit for you. We’ve kept the dress short, so the ­summer nights don’t feel too hot. Of course we’ve also thought of matching accessories. Whether you’re looking for a bracelet or bag, we’ve got something for everyone.

Summer is also the season of roses – so why not decorate your home with rose tendrils? With your embroidery computer doing the job virtually by itself, you’ll still have enough time left over to enjoy the outdoors. What about a garden party featuring butterfly decorations? For rainy days, you can retreat to your lounge area, which we’ve completely reinterpreted for you, with newly embroidered antique-look bar signs furnishing a suitable framework.

Hardly is the summer over when it’s back to school again. Children look forward to their first day at school, an experience you might choose to sweeten – entirely without added sugar, of course – with some suitable new gear.
Not quite sugar-free, however, is the jam which we’ve decked out with fetching lids. These make a jar of preserves the perfect little gift, e. g. as a thank you for a spur-of-the-moment invitation from
close friends. Or make them simply to lend an attractive touch to something commonplace!

Wishing you many hours of enjoyment browsing and creating,
as well as a fine long summer,

Your Editorial Team and Claudia Giesser, Editor-in-Chief
