It's well and truly summer now (look away from that looming cloud) I've got quite a few dresses to wear but theres definitely a few patterns that I want to get made up for this years sunshine. So this is my summer sew list....
Yep another Anna, but this time a maxi version.
I've actually just finished this so blog post coming soon!
Fabric: Indian cotton from the Goldhawk Rd haul
Now it's much warmer in the evenings I'm needing some new PJs to lounge around in, I'm thinking of maybe a shorts or 3/4 leg version in a nice light cotton.
Fabric: Something from the stash, maybe the left over swimming ladies?
I've had my eye on a few wrap dresses recently and it seems like the perfect dress to throw over a bikini too. I got this pattern because it was in the sale for a couple of quid, can't remember where from?, but on closer inspection it's not quite the dress I was after but I'm going to give it a go and see if I can add in some of my own alterations....GULP
Fabric: Might have accidentally bought some cute bird print drapey drapey viscose....
I've had a Hazel with a twist in my head for a while now. I want to keep the original bodice pattern, and use the facing as a small little collar across the top of the bodice. Add in spaghetti straps that tie on the shoulders and add either a circle or half circle skirt. Something that looks a bit like this...
Fabric: Plain black cotton of some description, keeping with my "cake" making :)
And thats my summer list (for now)
