Spring...and a girl's thoughts turn to sewing
The weather starts to warm and once again I'm thinking about sewing new clothes for spring. Here are some fabrics all purchased from Spotlight. From left: A printed cotton, stretch red cotton sateen, another printed cotton, lightweight stretch denim, cotton stripe.
The red and denim will become pants, with the other fabrics as shirts/blouses. Now I'm no dressmaker just a humble home sewer, so I like simple easy designs. I wouldn't mind adding a ruffle detail to the small floral print.
I will use my old faithful modified pants pattern but these are the shirts I like to make. I tend to prefer classic styles. At the moment I'm rather fond of denim-style jackets - in bright colours if possible.
