Getting Some Spring In My Wardrobe

There is always so much I want to do, but have so little time to do it in. This year is no exception. About three weeks ago, I started organizing a few projects just to have some ideas about what I want to sew over the next few months.

For starters dresses are always on the list. Here are a few I want to make before summer.

B5455 - Navy Starburst silk fabric from Fishman's





S2812 - Black and White Houndstooth fabric from Marji





S2473 - White with black topstitching (I already have several cuts of white fabric, but I don't know which one I'll use for this dress.)



These are a few garments on the Spring to make list. Needlesstosay, I'm still working on a few fall/winter pieces. All will be transition clothes as it's not Spring in Chicago until late May.

That's the short of it. Oh..., Several client projects (wardrobe for DS and Ms. CB's family reunion dress (V1138) and clothes for DD on the list as well. So I will be working on several projects at the same time. Next week I'll have an update on Ms. PB's dress. I finally decided on my banquet outfit (inspired by Cadena Fall 2008 design).

Happy Sewing!

I am so ready for spring!!! I have one more winter project in my queue. Then, like you, I'm moving on to spring sewing!

Great projects! I also have more spring plans than time to sew. I'm starting to accept that spring is also a cold season and plan accordingly. But all those dress patterns are so tempting!

Love your choices. I can't wait for Spring. The sun has been bright and more mild temps to tease us. But like you, I have several more winter outfits to complete and will move on to more spring/summer sewing.

What a great selection! Can't wait to see the actual look with your fabric choices.

I missed that first dress pattern on the website. I really like it, so very flattering. I can see you in this one.

Great choices. I know what you mean about so much to sew and so little time.

Elizabeth said...

Those dresses will look great on you- you wear that style well. We had a high temp today of 57 and I heard birds singing this afternoon so I am hopeful that spring will come sooner than later.

Excellent choices! I just picked up that first dress pattern - it's really lovely. I like your fabric choice for it, too.

Wonderful to talk to you during preparations for Haute Couture Chicago Spring lunch/fashion show. You're a volcano of talent, not to mention a knock out beauty too. Thank you for bringing new young life to our organization.SIS
