Loving the ethnic fabric and free flowing ease!

We are all over the ethnic look for this summer.  Some of our imported gauze fabrics from India are just perfect to get that free-flowing look so prevalent in the 60's and 70's.  And the best part is that they never seem to go out of style and are perfect for any age!

I wore my gauze palazzo pants, New Look 6271, on vacation and loved them so much that we made a second pair. My wonderful Burda 7645 rayon/lycra knit top is the perfect pairing!

 Laurel made her pants out of this lightweight rayon challis... yum! If you weren't blessed with long willowy legs, make these pants extra long, pair them with some wedge heeled shoes, and voila! You have that long lean look!

These wide-legged pants look great with a tee-shirt or even a more loose blouse,
 such as New Look 6268.  This is another very easy blouse to work up.  

We chose another imported gauze with a border.  Laurel placed the pattern pieces on the cross grain of the fabric to make sure we highlighted the border along the selvage edge of the fabric.

Again, this pattern uses a self belt, but it would look cute without the belt.  Very soft and flowing!

 And since we're gaga over gauze, we thought A Verb for Keeping Warm's "Endless summer Tunic" would be fun to make up in a cotton gauze.

We love the quasi-batik look of this cotton crinkled gauze or try one of our cotton double gauzes! . 
Can't wait to see this little number finished!

All of these patterns are a breeze to sew and we love the infinite variety that just one pattern can give you by using different fabrics.  Drop in to pick out something fresh and breezy to add to your Summer Wardrobe!
