Summer is here and we recently gave you a head start on your summer dress collection. Now we're back to help you finish your collection by taking a look at some of the 2016 summer dress trends. We've looked at some of the designer collections and they're fabulous! But what if you don't have thousands of dollars to spend on one dress? That's where your sewing skills may come into play. We'll steer you on the path to finding patterns and fabrics to fit the trend. Don't have the time to make it? Then we'll steer you down the other road, to purchasing the trend for a lot less.
You may think it's Bohemian but it's actually Ukrainian. This trend puts detailed hand embroidery on Ukrainian fashion. Designer Vita Kin is a master of the look . Prices can be pretty steep. We're talking $500 and up. But you can recreate it for less with a quick Simplicity pattern and some hand embroidery. Though it may take a lot more time, it will be much cheaper in the long run.
Livin up your summer with gingham. This designer dress is $435.00. Save money by buying gingham print fabric and sewing one up following this Simplicity wrap dress pattern.
All Denim Everything
As Jay Z would say, all denim everything. Keep up with the Kardashians and try throwing it back to the old school with acid wash, or use a darker toned denim for a dressier look. These dresses are usually less pricy so we suggest reducing sewing time by purchasing one from a department store like Gap.
Over The Shoulder, No Boulder Holder
Don't be shy, show a little shoulder. This trend exposes one or both shoulders. Just be sure to wear sunscreen to help avoid those funky tan lines. A designer dress from Proenza Schouler can run you over $500. That's why we're recommending you consider making one with this Simplicity Cynthia Rowly pattern. You'll save money, leaving you with a little extra cash for accessories to complete your look.
