Spring - When A Young Woman's Fancy Turns to Thoughts of Flippy Skirts

This always happens to me this time of year. When the crocus and daffodil begin to bloom, my desire to sew spring and summer clothes blossoms right along with them. I am driven to purchase floaty cottons and airy linens in scrumptious colours and prints. I am compelled to daydream of kicky little skirts with matching tops, adorable sundresses, comfortable capris and city shorts. This year, of course, is no exception.

While at Fabricland the other day, I spotted these woven cotton fabrics - most of them are voile, which I love for warm weather - it is so light and it breathes so nicely. The prints will become skirts and the solids will become coordinating tops.

While browsing Wazoodle a few days later, I spotted these beautiful quilting cottons, also slated to become skirts.

I also need to make T-shirts and I just happen to have knits, that coordinate with the fabrics above, in my stash (imagine that - I guess having close to 650 m of fabric pays off sometimes **rolls eyes**). These fabrics are next on the docket after I finish SWAP sewing. I only have one more dress to complete and then I am done. Wish me luck!

Ohmygosh do we think alike! Only I am thinking dresses...last night when I should have been sewing, I was pulling dress patterns to make spring dresses from...only a dress and a top to go and I can sew spring too!
