Summer Breeze

Bild: Inspiration Issue 47

What could be lovelier than sitting outdoors somewhere and letting the warm summer air caress your face? Lingering over a book, or pottering about in the garden. Feeling the mild breeze around your limbs, creating a sensation of pure well-being. Summer’s the season to kick back and enjoy life – those idle moments on the terrace or in the garden. And why trail around the shops buying seasonal accessories for the balmy weather when you can have fun sewing them for yourself?
Kids too are on the lookout for fun – when the weather’s fine, they can take their play tent out into the garden and ‘fly’ their owls there.
Beware, though, sewing the tent is likely to get you hooked, once you’ve completed one of these projects, you may not be able to stop!
Time to put on your glad rags and go out on the town. We invited you to choose your favourite skirt from the selection offered on our website. Your choice inspired us. Check out page 8 to see how we’ve mixed and matched the skirt, teaming it with a matching jacket for a sophisticated look, and a T-shirt for a sporty one.
It’s summer, and that calls for stronger, brighter hues. In ‘Intoxicated with colour’ we’ve chosen simple, in some cases offbeat patterns for you that are quick to sew, so that updating your summer wardrobe will be a real breeze!

Wishing you hours of reading, sewing and crafting enjoyment,

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