Today however I would like to discuss my ambitious plan for the next few weeks, truthfully it will probably take me through the end of summer, but I think it will be exciting. The origin of my plan is the fact that I recently hit up the pattern sale at Joann Fabrics. I now have all these great patterns and I thought to myself, these patterns are begging for a schedule of execution.
June 21st (Also)
I'll be popping up some photos of the sweater on the 21st as well. I can't wait to show off the whole ensemble.
My plan for this is view B. I have some amazing green seersucker that I am dying to dig into. To be fair the fabric was intended for my wife but she loves and and likes when I look cute and I think she'll forgive me.
I made a version of this dress for a friend for a WWII reenactment and it came out so cute that I now want one for myself.
Lucky Lucille did a version of this dress on her blog and it turned out fabulous. It's such a simple perfect for summer silhouette. I want it on my body!
This is another look that falls into the great for summer category, but I think that it would also be wonderful with a little cardigan in the fall. I had a dress very similar to this before I lost weight and now it's too big to alter down, so I'm looking at this number as an opportunity to have a favorite dress back.
I am always in need of simple cute tops but I don't seem to make them. This little beauty caught my eye and if the fit works I may make a couple of them.
This little vintage number is appealing on so many levels, the skirt is totally serviceable for work and play, and I really like both tops. I may be too busty for the tops to look flattering but I am going to give it a shot.
This vintage Vogue is just quintessentially my style. This is one of those patterns I could see remaking over and over again.
Now I can't handle the little wavy tentacles on the yellow skirt but the blue is super cute!
Now this dress pattern calls for woven fabrics, but something in me is telling me to go rogue and try the sleeveless version in a knit. I don't know why but I feel compelled.
This dress has been on my wishlist for a while. I have a soft spot for the Cynthia Rowley patterns. It's just so pretty.
Finally for back to school I'm getting into another shirt dress. What can I say, they are my jam! I love the large skirt on this.
In addition to diving into my pattern stash I am also going to try to use fabric from my collection. I want to keep my spending on these projects down. I want to feel like I am using all of my resources to their maximum potential.
What do you all think? Do you have any summer sewing plans?
