Maxi Skirt Tutorial from The Winthrop Chronicles
Great for beginner sewists, this maxi skirt sewing tutorial from The Winthrop Chronicles is the perfect project to start with. This skirt already such a fast sew, and you can save even more time by not hemming the bottom since knit fabric does not fray. I love how Sarah styles hers with a denim shirt.

This double braided scarf tutorial from Put Up Your Dukes is the perfect project for combining team colors in a charming accessory that you can wear year round! Mix and match your scarf with two solids, two prints, or a solid and a print.
Women's Long Sleeve T-shirt Tutorial and Sewing Pattern from Nap Time Creations
There is nothing better than finding the perfect t-shirt pattern that you can sew up again and again in different fabrics! Nap Time Creations recently provided readers with this FREE tutorial and pattern, and it is great! In her tutorial, Emily makes two, one in a solid and one in a stripe and they both look phenomenal. 
Tiered Chevron Maxi Dress from Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom
This adorable maxi dress tutorial from Jaime of Scattered Thoughts of a Crafty Mom is perfect for sewing in your team colored chevron or quatrefoil! I love this tutorial because Jaime offers very detailed instructions on how to take your own measurements. Not to mention that if you throw on a simple cardigan, and your boho summer look transitions perfectly to fall.
