Summer Sewing Plans

It’s been a busy summer with both kids home all day and tons of family visiting.  I’m a bit amazed by how much sewing I’ve accomplished lately!  I thought I better plan out my makes for the rest of the summer  since my fabric and pattern stash has grown quite a bit lately.  The weather tends to stay warm here until way past December so I’ll be wearing these looks almost all year-long.  Hopefully this list will help keep me organized!

  • Marcy Tilton Shingle Dress V8904 using Bobby Blues Knit.  I made this for the 4th of July, pics coming soon!  Best dress ever!  So comfy-plus I made it breastfeeding friendly :)

  • A look for July’s MonoSewn Challenge over at The Monthly Stitch using  two fabrics  from Marcy Tilton, but I’m not decided on a pattern yet.

  • Lekala Summer Pants 4024 (I won 5 awesome patterns from TMS and Lekala for the Franken Indie contest.) Making these out of the coolest sheer print curtain(all cut out!) possibly for Oonapalooza?

  • Make something with my Shibori Shell Wrapped Fabric dyed in madder and overdyed in hibiscus and henna.  Some pattern options are shown below, Colette Hawthorn (first make here), Lekala 5899 & V1883 Donna Karan wrap dress.  I’d love a second opinion so please comment on which pattern you like best- or another pattern you think would look cool with this fabric!

  • Yoga pants for Ami & me using Jalie 3022 and a knit dress using Salme 131. ( I won both patterns from TMS, Salme and Pattern Postie for the Dresses contest!)  I need to buy some more knits :)

  1. Looking forward to seeing those Lekala wrap pants! That curtain fabric is amazing. Very Oona-esque.

    By the way, I nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award (one of those awards that gets passed around the blogosphere, similar to the Liebster Award). :) More details are in my blog post about it, if you’re interested: I’ve been reading your blog for a while, and always enjoy seeing your creations!

    1. Thanks so much for the lovely nomination on your blog! Not sure I’ll get to posting about it myself but appreciate the thought! :) Thank You!!!
