Spring/Summer 2011

I have been inspired by the ladies at The Sew Weekly to create a Spring/Summer Palate. I can't even pretend that I can sew a garment a week, but I have my goal set at 2 a month. My goal for the next few months:

  • wrap dress (or two)
  • shirt dress
  • ruffled top
  • teal and purple plaid tunic
  • white linen pants
  • dark indigo skinny jeans
  • coral long cardigan

It's not really a collection, more assorted separates. I believe I have everything I need to make each item, maybe more interfacing and a zipper or lining fabric. I hope to be able to do a me-made September or so.


  1. That will be quite an accomplishment to get all that done by September (and have a full time job) I love your color palette!

  2. Hi! Thanks for your comment!
    My dress is a halter dress from the 1950's. So yes vintage :o)
    I have a picture without wearing a sweater if you'd like to see it!
