Summer is coming projects!

I finally got my shipment from! It got delayed for two days, and when you are waiting for a fabric delivery that equals forever! I admit I went a little nuts.

First up we have the elusive Vogue 1241 that Holly and I (isn't team sewing fun) will both be starting this weekend.

I used black Shantung. I started cutting it out last night and I tell you what...those pattern pieces are crazy looking. It says easy though. As Holly and I like to say when sewing, "famous last words."

Next I got this lovely chiffon, which I have never sewn with before. I will be making Vogue 2850, which is an Anna Sui blouse. I am making the middle shirt there in the picture above.

Next is an inspired piece. I got a navy voile to make the Amy Butler Anna Tunic. It is fully lined. I am going to be making the dress length. I am going to use the lace (which is kind of stretchy) to overlay on the yoke and probably decorate the tie as well. I am also thinking of maybe using some white ribbon to embellish the bottom with a few stripes as well. I know what you are thinking, but I'm excited about this one. I'm so into navy lately!

Finally I am going to make Simplicity 2601 from this floral Voile. I love a shirt with a good peplum, which is flattering on me. After seeing Patty's versions and Dixie's Kite Day Shirt I became fully convinced. I'm not quite sure which version I will be doing yet, but I'm excited to get started!

I'm within a few weeks of summer break and more sewing time. Woohoo!

*Disclaimer: It was a dark and stormy day in Houston. All the pictures look a bit dark, but it was worth it to have some rain. It was starting to look like Dallas around here!

  1. I can't wait to see the finished version of the Vogue dress! I've been eyeing that pattern for a while, it will be nice to see it sewn up. :]
