I’ve been wooed by all the great patterns out there recently — some (relatively) old and some brand, brand new! I guess that means there is some major sewing for me in my near future!
A paper pattern — yummy!
I haven’t even started mine and there’s only a week left in the sew along! I have the pieces cut for my (completely unwearable) muslin, but with vacation planning and actual vacation, haven’t had a chance to piece them together. I’m really hoping to get some good Macaron time in when we get home.
This past week I broke down and bought both of them!
Now I have some serious decisions to make — fabric decisions of course. It’s pretty much a given that I’m not going to sew 12 buttonholes (I detest sewing buttonholes) on the Kelly skirt and will use pearl snaps instead. I have a nice little stash of snaps, I love how they look on Megan Niesen’s patterns and they are just SOOO much easier!
But what fabric? A super-soft lightweight denim (my leading contender right now)? A kelly green twill? Maybe royal blue twill? Or just a nice, office-appropriate light gray? Decisions!
And then the Washi Dress — oh the choices! I’m thinking something loud and bold, like Drop Cloth by Jay McCarroll. Or maybe the new Ombre Dots from Riley Blake. Or I still have a nice stash of Anna Maria Horner and Valorie Wells voiles.
Or maybe all three. Yeah, I think that’s the winner 🙂
