New Patterns for Spring
It's my birthday this week, so I decided to treat myself to some new patterns. These beauties are from the new Colette Patterns. I've heard good things about them, and admired what other sewistas have made.
I love the vintage feeling they invoke - so elegant. Just my cup of tea.
Since I had not bought any patterns for myself yet this year, it was fun to pick out a whole new batch for Spring. I'm sure I have just the fabric already for the Sencha blouse, but I'll have to poke around the sewing cave to see what I have that wants to be an Oolong dress.
I suddenly realized what we all have to do to make spring arrive with warmer weather - sew something for winter! Yes, we all must sew some wintry garments, and just like wearing your pajamas inside-out will make it snow(experts have proven this), hundreds of sewistas sewing turtlenecks and wool skirts will make it hot in no time. (Doesn't washing your car always make it rain?)
