Summer for me is dressmaking. This Summer I've made two of Janet Clare's Artisan Apron's "wearing your creativity". The first is made in a Linen Denim, it's plain background gave me chance to play.

My denim Apron decorated with bias binding, bunting & brooches

This is my linen blend Apron lined with a plain cotton in orchid
Made in a size small (linen blend in store & online)
I've also added to the Compagnie M range in the shop and will be putting these on the website. I made the Lotta Skirt last year and got it out again this summer. This survived the bottom of my rucksack last year when I went interrailing in Europe. The fabric is a Moda and it washes brilliantly and doesn't crease. The design is something unique and has a European style about it.
