new project time!

I'm ready to start something new, although it will likely be the weekend before I actually get a chance to.  I'm thinking I will probably go with this cute 50s Simplicity:


And I have this really fabulous kelly green checked fabric (that I don't have a photo of) but I also just got this pretty turquoise seersucker:


 Right now, I'm leaning to the seersucker, with a white waffle pique collar.  I love that this pattern has so many different options (but only one fitting required!)  You can have matching collar (the bias is really nice) or contrast collar, or just a square neckline with a pretty sash. 

What are you working on or dreaming of this week?

  6. LOVE it! What an awesome collar! I'm test sewing right now. At least two of the things are actually to fit me and not a kid! lol! I'm really thinking you'll like the new Colette patterns coming out, btw! ;-) But, I'd really like to make the HP Marrakesh (sp?) pants!

  8. I love this pattern and think it would be great in a seersucker. I am making a dress for my 5 year old granddaughter. First is the smocking to do.

  10. Oh my gosh! I just finished this dress two days ago! I think mine may have been a butterick? At any rate, it was super easy to make. I had to make my collar smaller because I felt like a pilgrim! *lol* But it's a darling dress. I'll try to post pics this weekend so you can see. My favorite part is that pretty deep v in the back. xoxo

  13. That is lovely. You will be amazingly well dressed come the Spring - I am envious.

    My daughter is visiting and even though I'm off for 5 days straight - I haven't had a minute to sew. g

  14. Love the pattern and fabric. I want to get some travel tissue covers made up this weekend. A quick and easy project (depending on how many times the kiddos interupt, LOL).

  15. Finishing my book! Oh, you mean as in crafty things? I wish I had the time. H and I have been scrapbooking when we can, but we are distracted by cupcakes and cakes lately. I LOVE that print.
