Vero Beach Set

Friday, July 24, 2020

Hey June just released a pattern set that screams casual wear, but packs plenty of details. The Vero Beach Set is two patterns in one featuring a slightly oversized hoodie designed for woven fabrics and elastic waist shorts.

The Vero Beach set hoodie is perfect for throwing on over a swimsuit or to ward off the air conditioner chills. The block print cotton fabric has been in my stash for a while from my great aunt. It washed up a bit crinkle-y like a seersucker fabric which is perfect for the casual vibes of the outfit.

In case the details are getting lost in the bold print, I wanted to highlight a few. Adrianna included several finish options for the hood seam. I selected the french seam finish. The placket provides a nice place to add a pop of contrast if you choose, and the bias neckline finishes things off nicely. The kangaroo pocket is a great place to play with extra topstitching or tuck in a tag.

For the Vero Top, I made a size 8. Adding 1/2" in bodice length was the only adjustment.

The Vero Shorts are both casual and comfortable. With pockets front and back, they are practical too! I had just enough tencel denim left over from my Greer Jumpsuit to make the shorts. I had even saved enough bias tape for the hem finish.

The waistband is designed for 2" elastic and includes an option for a drawstring. Two darts in the back reduce bunching keeping the fit smooth.

For the Vero Shorts, I shortened the rise in front 1" and 1/2" in the back. I used a size 10 at the waist slimmed to a size 8 at the hip.


The Vero Beach Set certainly isn't just for the beach! The fabric options are endless, so have fun making a few of each piece. I plan to!
