April Sewing

Not much going on in the way of sewing for the past week or so.  I have cut around pattern pieces for two projects I want to sew soon.  One is a Vogue dress pattern, V9022.  There are nice reviews of this pattern on Pattern Review.  I plan to use a double knit from Gorgeous Fabrics, called geranium.
I purchased this in 2012.  I pressed it this evening as I had washed it last weekend to prepare for sewing.

The other pattern I pulled out and cut around pattern pieces is a new purchase. Butterick 6175.  You can tell that this pattern is loose fitting. I may not make mine as loose.

I plan to use this fabric that I acquired from Schoolhouse Fabrics in Floyd, VA last year.  It is a Robert Kaufman polyester semi sheer fabric.

Both of these pieces make me feel like spring time!

I have so many sewing plans running through my head and need to get moving.


  1. Oh, I can't wait to see your 9022! I love that pattern. And I love your geranium fabric. I rarely wear pink, but have cut two dresses during my week off both in nearly exactly that shade of pink! Both from a wonderful thick & crisp cotton sheet I thrifted recently ;)

    1. I rarely wear pink also. Darker shades I seem to pull off better than light, pale shades of pink.

  2. Both fabrics are so pretty and will make pretty dresses!
