Indigo & Blue - Outfit Planning

I am so happy with the results of my sewing efforts in March. I hope to keep up the momentum in April as well. While I still hold great affinity for the yellows of March, my eye is being swayed by this little ditty here:

Oh to have a cute and vintage style (read that as a fitted bodice and poofy skirt) dress in that gorgeous indigo! My heart is all a flutter. My only problem is that I don't have anything to use for lining... and being a burn-out fabric it Needs a lining!

And what of that amazing and oh, so colorful floral? It is but a scrap. Perhaps a little envelope clutch purse (finished) or a hat lining and band.... maybe, just maybe I can carve out all three!!

As for the last, that very rich blue, it finally spoke to me. It wants to be a dress as well. A cute knee-length summer frock to go with some wedge heels that I just picked up the other weekend. I'm excited and ready to go.

How about you? What are your goals for April?


  1. Fun, those are some great fabrics, I can't wait to see how they all turn out!

  2. Everything sounds totally cute and fun!

  3. Ohm this makes me so wish I could sew! Love that floral!

    1. Thanks. Sewing isn't really all that hard. Modern patterns can be intimidating but you may get enjoyment out of small hand-stitched projects


Thanks so much for your comments.
