I have officially decided to shut down the winter sewing. I am dying to transition into spring sewing - the lighter (in weight and colour) fabrics are calling loudly to me from the stash cupboard. Although the weather here is still chilly, I can't help but dream of warmer days. The patterns most firmly demanding my attention are the skirts and dresses, so that is where I will begin. I have several vintage and modern dress patterns that have been on the the to-do pile for far too long - it's well past time to let them see the light of day!
As well, Prom is coming up and I need a new dress to wear. Well, I don't actually need a new dress, but I really want a new dress, so a new dress I shall have! I am leaning toward Vogue 1043 in a gorgeous black and white floral shantung purchased from Fashionista Fabrics around this time last year.
I am also very enamored with Vogue 2960, which I originally had plans to make ages ago. I have another fabric, a silk pique, from Fashionista Fabrics that would be smashing with this pattern.
Right now, I am not sure which to choose, so I think I will make a muslin of both and then decide. However, a little input from my readers is always helpful. So folks, which one should I make for Prom?
