La de da – it’s spring. And I’m finally thinking of sewing again (yes, my sewjo has run away for several months).
After weeks of cruising the internet, here’s what I’ve planned:
I ventured again in the world outside the Big 4 and purchased the Fibre Mood Tilda dress. Having sewn the Ermine blouse and the Rya shacket, I am so happy with the designs, drafting, instruction sets, and support from Fibre Mood. Any trepidation is offset by huge photo galleries and reviews from other sewists – which I love as a reference.
I think this is a subtle pattern. Sewn as a blouse it very closely resembles the more expensive Friday Pattern Company Patina Blouse. As a dress, it has lots of options. Here’s how I envision my first version, no collar, cap sleeve:
And how could I move into spring and summer without a couple maxi dresses. I’m using a favorite, McCall 6559, in two ity fabrics.
Meanwhile, I’m staying out of trouble by working on my latest jigsaw puzzle!
For now – Coco
