I had the opportunity to travel to Uganda during my summer holiday. Just in case you are not aware, I am born and raised in Uganda (a beautiful country located in East African). My family and I relocated to the UK which has turned into our second home. I know I should be talking about my sewing makes for the summer holiday.

If you are a sewist and you have a holiday booked, I am almost certain a handmade wardrobe might be the first thing you think about. Uganda is warm all year round, and most of my handmade clothes favoured the British weather. So I had to come up with sewing plans specifically for that holiday.

Here is the video where I share with you what I sewed up for the holiday. I hope you enjoy it.

I would also like to share with you in detail the patterns I used for my summer holiday makes.

Firstly, I made up three Cami tops using the True Bias – Ogden Cami Pattern, a well-loved sewing pattern in the sewing community. It comes together in pretty much any lightweight fabric however I prefer making it out of viscose fabric.

I also made up this gorgeous unicorn dress for my princess using a pattern from a Burda Style Magazine. Burda 06/2019 #129. It was made out of a cotton poplin fabric.

I also hacked the Simplicity 8178 jumpsuit pattern into lightweight summer pants which I wore a lot during the holidays.

And the final project I made was the viscose zebra print night robe made using the stoff & Stil kimono pattern.
