Carolyn noticed that I have less than 2 weeks left until my summer break. Oh yeah, baby!! She also inquired as to my summer sewing plans. Although I haven't fleshed them all out yet, here is a small preview of the projects calling my name the loudest:
Vogue 8178 - I have been wanting to make this dress for a very long time now - I will be using an olive brown linen for this one.
Vogue 8319 - As many of you know, I have a thing for 60s designs, so how can I not make this one? I have a gorgeous yellow/orange silk suiting for this one.
Vogue 2903 - I also have a passion for 50s designs. I have adored this dress since I first laid eyes on it. I have a beautiful chocolate/white floral cotton that is screaming to be made into this (unfortunately, the fabric is a tad heavy and since this dress calls for 5 m of fabric, I may have to reassess).
Simplicity 3874 - This will make a great outfit for work in the fall. I have a peach circle print silky for the dress and a coordinating peach linen for the jacket.
I have a bunch of original vintage patterns that are vying for my attention too. I am also desperate for some new shorts and capris for the summer. Oh, and I need a few, toss-em-on, look-cute, feel-comfortable, schlepping-to-the-grocery-store dresses. I guess I have my work cut out for me - actually, I wish my work was cut out for me, then I could just start sewing! :)
