I think the linen makes it a little more wearable, too. It reads pretty casual which might not have been the case using chiffon for the tie. I will be sewing summer dresses, hoping for fashionable outfits and evidence that I am developing personal style. This pursuit continues to amuse me, so onward ho!
Next! On to the next thing! Do you see those red and red print fabrics on the shelf? Those fabrics are hollering for my attention. I found them while shopping with BeeBee at G Street recently. It was a little intoxicating, what with the sale, the LivingSocial 50% off coupons, and all. A bargain does make it all more fun, doesn't it? BeeBee has a great eye and gave me thumbs up on these colors.
I am giving up on sewing for spring. It is too confusing! Instead I dream of warmer days ahead and sewing solid color knit dresses to be worn with bare legs and colorful jackets. When the hottest, most humid days arrive, I will be ready for them and the accompanying icy air conditioning.
Thanks to all of you bloggers (especially Gigi, the starter of jacket-mania) for the inspiration and thank you everyone for reading. Thanks for your comments and emails and all your support & encouragement!
