If you haven't started thinking about a dress you'll make for the Summer Dress Sewalong, don't worry, there's still plenty of time. I'm heading off to Joann's in a little while to take advantage of their sale on Simplicity patterns (5 for $5). On my wish list is:
Simplicity 2584. I've already seen a couple of these made up in solid colors and they're just gorgeous (see here and here). I love the neckline detail.
Simplicity 2586. This looks like a very basic design, but I think the quilted trim on View C is an interesting detail.
Simplicity 2702. I was sold on this dress when I saw it featured in the latest Threads magazine.
New Look 6457. I bought some fabric a few months ago with this style in mind. More on that later though!
Although it's a long weekend, I don't think I'll have a lot of opportunity to get a lot of sewing done. Weekends tend to fill up so fast! I'm hoping to finish one dress that I started earlier this week just in time for a Memorial day bbq on Monday. What are your weekend or sewing plans?
