Summer SWAP: Sewing with a Plan Pt 1

Is it still a SWAP  if it doesn't all match?  Anywho.  I've decided to empty my closet and start from scratch.  There's a ton of stuff in there I never wear.  Then I gotta fill it back up!  I'm gathering images from my inspiration folder  (and my Pinterest Stylish board) to add to a SWAP composite.

The first thing I'm adding is this top. I found this image of Gabrielle Anwar back in the winter months and I've been dying for warmer weather so I could knock it off ever since!

I'm loving this one.  I didn't save it with a source.  I have the Simplicity pattern that is so similar (and sadly OOP):

Image source unknown.


I'm also going to conquer cute shorts.

I have the Colette pattern that should be a good staple if I can get a good fit, and I have a vintage pj shorts pattern that was pratically made for me.

Some lightweight summery skirts, especially loving the current lacy vintagey trend. Of course.

Oh yeah.  Summer dresses.

    so many things to choose from... I'll have to ponder all these things when I get home from work. They're ALL cute.

  4. Love to see what you're working on!! I love the flowy skirts and tops. Seems I feel more comfortable in those types of clothing the older - ahem, I mean curvier - I get. :-)

  5. So you had to throw in the OMG there to confuse us? I love the white eyelet style things you've chosen. Have fun with your new summer wardrobe.
