Inspiration: Outdoor Music Festivals

Since Summerfest is still going on here in Milwaukee and the ethnic fests don't start up again until next week, this week's festival inspiration is based on what to wear to outdoor festivals!

Outfit Number One: Rock concert, inspiration outfit from Urban Outfitters.


Vogue V8393 Halter Top Pattern, which is out of print but available at Vogue Fabrics, paired with Michael Miller's Polka Dots in Black & White, which is the fabric featured on the V8393 pattern. Also found at Vogue Fabrics.

McCalls M3341 A-line skirt pattern paired with denim. I looked high and low for washed-out denim but couldn't find any. Looks like you'd have to fade out the denim yourself for the Urban Outfitters look. Black denim fabric found at The Fabric Fairy.

Wouldn't this outfit look cute with the Curvy Clutch/Wristlet (sewing pattern) from Keyka Lou? I like the wood grain fabric from Joel Dewberry, maybe in sage (found at Contemporary Cloth).

Outfit Number Two: Jazz In The Park, inspiration outfit is the Selma dress by Christopher Deane as interpreted by Weekend Designer (tutorial). Also, red dress in this photo found on Atlanta Bartlett.

Do-it-yourself with the tutorial from Weekend Designer and:

Hawaiian Hibiscus fabric, white on navy, found at Harts Fabric.

A big bag is in order for Jazz in the Park for you will need to tote your picnic blanket and supplies! Amy Butler's Field Bag and Tote would be perfect. Maybe paired with this Strippy Stripe Cotton fabric from Gorgeous Fabrics?
