As spring has partially sprung here in Colorado, it feels appropriate to start on spring (and summer-ish) sewing projects! I have quite a few fabrics already lined up to become new fun dresses. I may end up making a few tops and skirts too, but dresses are the main plan moving forward for this sewing season. I thought today I'd show you all some of the fabrics and projects I have coming up!
These first three fabrics will be two dresses and a button front blouse respectively. The top fabric has a crisp linen feel but is actually rayon and is destined to become a 1940's dress.The center fabric is a cotton sateen with a slight stretch I found at Joanns that will become a 1950's wiggle dress. The last fabric above is a quite sheer but will become a 1930's style button front blouse. I made a teal linen skirt recently that I think the blouse will match perfectly!
Then there are the rayon dresses, I have three planned! There were just too many great rayons at Joanns recently! Two will match my new black and purple straw hat (I can't wait to wear it!) and the third print (the navy and red roses) is just so vintage looking. I really can't wait to get started on these! The vintage dresses below show the kind of idea I have for these.
Florals, for spring? Groundbreaking. I know. I do love me some florals! I really can't wait to get started on these projects, but first I have to finish reorganizing my sewing room! Everything is still such a mess, but I know soon enough the space is going to be better than ever and I'll share the results as soon as its finished :)
