Sunshine Summer Window!

Inspiring you to sew your own sunshine!

The sun may be a little shy this year but our wonderful Jo has made sure that the sun is shining inside Guthrie and Ghani. The display features a delightful array of patterns and fabrics that will add style, and comfort to your me-made summer outfits!

For those who can't make it to our lovely shop, let us take a closer look at the specially selected pieces to sprinkle a little bit of sunshine your way.

The Esti Co-ord from Tilly and the Buttons

The Esti Co-ord, made in the beautiful Palace Blue Geo Viscose Fabric, is the epitome of French Riviera chic! The art deco design and drapey, light texture of this viscose pairs seamlessly with the relaxed, comfortable style of the co-ord. It makes us think of lounging by the beach in a cosy yet stylish PJ set. What more could you want?!

The Palace Blue Geo’s intricate pattern adds a touch of sophistication, making it perfect for both casual beach outings and elegant seaside dinners.

The Calvin Wrap Dress from True Bias

Next up is the Calvin Wrap Dress from True Bias, made in the delightful Sunshine Viscose Linen. This combination is so classic, and embraces the texture of the viscose linen, and vibrant colours. The sunny hues paired with the delicate long ties and bow details of this wrap dress.

Whether you're enjoying a midday stroll or dancing under the stars, this dress ensures you stay cool and stylish. It's a firm favourite amongst the team here!

The Camber from Merchant and Mills

The Camber top, made with the luxurious Robert Kaufman Coral Essex yarn-dyed linen, is a simple yet essential addition to any summer wardrobe. The yarn died linen means the woven threads in this fabric creates a beautiful texture and depth to any garment it's used for.

We all need that go-to classic woven tee for any outfit! This combination ensures you always have a reliable and chic option for any summer activity.

The Chanterelle Pants from Sew Liberated

Paired with the Camber top are the Chanterelle Pants from Sew Liberated. These trousers are made from Pacific Blue Washed Enzyme Linen Blend, with natural slub that provides extra texture, whilst the breathable qualities of linen ensure these are perfect to wear in warmer weather. These trousers feature a slightly barrelled leg with a charming pleat at the hem cuff, adding a lovely detail to the design.

Comfortable and casual, these pants are all the rage this season and are available in both barreled and wide-leg styles, offering versatility for any look!

The Marcel from Chalk and Notch

The Marcel dress from Chalk and Notch is another standout summer garment, made in the Rust Sorona Viscose Linen. The deep orange shade and soft, drapey texture make this gathered floating summer dress a must-have.

Paired with a simple pair of sandals, the Marcel dress effortlessly exudes summer elegance and charm.

The Young Power Bag

No summer outfit is complete without the perfect accessory, and the Young Power Bag slots into this role perfectly!

This adorable crossbody bag keeps your essentials secure and close at hand. Made from the gorgeous terrazzo woven jacquard fabric, specially crafted in France for Guthrie and Ghani, the bag features a soft and slightly bouncy texture, making it a stylish and practical addition to any ensemble.

We have each colour way in the window because they are just so wonderful!

The Luskentyre Bag

For those needing a bit more space, the Luskentyre Bag is a roomy shoulder bag that can comfortably hold all your essentials for a day at the beach, pool, or a picnic in the park.

The latest version in the window is crafted from the Terrazo Jacquard used in the Young Power Bag kit! This bag combines functionality with style, making it an ideal companion for your summer adventures. We have a gorgeous selection of jacquards for all styles and wardrobes - I have linked some below!

This summer window display is adorned with vibrant sunshine bunting, bright yellow pinwheels, and beach deck chairs, all sprinkled with sunbeams and fabulous sewing trinkets. Jo, the creative mind behind the window, shares her inspiration: “I just wanted sunny summer colours of sunsets, sand, and sea. I like it to make people smile, the sun is shining in G&G.”

We hope this delightful window display brings a smile to your face and inspires you to sew your own sunshine this summer! If you do feel inspired please share your makes with us!
