Summer Sewing Plans

    I’m hoping to quilt a large (almost king) size top in straight lines. Might make some fun gifts for sharing.

    Great ideas and great question…made me think!:)

    We are going to go visit our girl in the UK this summer so I really wanted to try to make this wrap skirt to take with me…if all goes well…maybe two!:)

    Also..she asked for some small items to give to her friends this Christmas and one is a young man she works with…whom she says is “posh”….hmm…I have some wingtip shoes, fedoras and mustache fabrics….we’ll see what I can come up with!:)

    Thank you sooo much for the ideas! I just started sewing and was stuck on what to do for my next project!
    So, I’m just thrilled with all of these great ideas- ESP the pinny dress, and the big girl tops/skirts! Yay, yay,yay!
    Off to start on the pinny!

    Funny you should ask: I have been planning a mini summer capsule wardrobe. You can have a look here:

    I am in the midst of choosing the fabric to go along with the patterns I picked out. Sometimes picking fabric for summer can be hard… I wrote about this here:

    I bought some lovely chambray and some amazingly soft linen… I will be making at least 2-3 dresses, maybe a romper and some skirts. I’ll be unveiling my final master plan soon. BTW I love the blouses you chose. So cheery!

  11. I’ll be sewing lots of aprons and apron dresses for the Christmas season to sell in my Etsy shop.
