The Neverending Winter


It's that part of winter where it feels like it will never be spring, ever again. If we did do Spring again, if it ever were warm again, I might want to make this jacket. I even have some white pique.
If it ever were warm again, and we could walk outside without Sherpawear, I'd also consider making Vogue 1168

Doesn't that look light and floaty and summery?
But who am I kidding...it will never be summer again.
If it were summer, I'd choose colors like cantaloupe and aqua, peach and lime and frosty blue and khaki, maybe some yellow too. I'd make a batik wrap skirt to wear to the pool and to sit outside under the umbrellas, drinking frosty tropical drinks, with umbrellas in them.
If we ever do have summer again, what will you be sewing?

I love the picture you just painted!! But I'm not quite ready to think about warm weather sewing either...

I like that Butterick pattern-very cute. And honestly--spring will come. This month, in fact. Although, looking out at the snow, it doesn't look promising!

I was pleased to see that the mountains of snow on the sides of the roads are finally starting to melt, so I'm also more inclined to think about spring clothing. I've got some lovely linen that I bought last summer at Josephine's Dry Goods in Oregon that is calling out to be made into Vogue 1127.

It will never be summer. There will be dirty piles of snow on the street forever.
