Next project-Simplicity Dress
I have been reading through the instructions for this dress. I was impressed by the dress Cennetta of Mahogany Stylist made for her daughter. I am excited by all of the combination options included in this pattern. I plan to make the ruffle top with stand up collar and straight/pencil skirt. Sleeves or no is dependent on fabric availability, though I think there will be sufficient fabric for a short sleeve version.
Very spring looking IMHO. Today we are having winter again, high of 47 after a Saturday and Sunday highs in upper 60's to low 70's. So sewing spring colors and lighter weight fabrics are keeping me in a spring time mode. The green/pink/yellow apple fabric I acquired from a vintage fabric seller on eBay. This fabric is truly lovely and feels great. Whether truly vintage, I don't really know but it met my expectations when it arrived, actually it was better than expected. The green is a silk noil I purchased from Nancy's Notions. I have not sewn silk noil in several years but I always liked the feel and the look garments from this fabric.
