The styles that have really caught my attention lately seem both seasonally appropriate, figure flattering and have a simple silhouette that can be created in a super wide variety of fabrics. Woop!
First up on my Spring sewing wish list is a gentle shirt / blouse with short, capped or sloping sleeves, something light and breezy, not too fitted. Perhaps one button up and one loose over head style. Collar or none, I simply can not yet decide, maybe I will see where the fabric takes me (nice way of saying I'll wing it!). Here are some stunning examples of the type of beauty that I'm jabbering on about:
The second item whizzing round my busy mind is a dress. Again, short, bracelet or cap sleeve (is this a longing for warm weather?), fitted top but not tight tight with a slight kick to the skirt. Not long but not short is my usual go to with dress length. Nothing too fussy, nice and easy form constructed from possibly a cotton denim fabric, something light but with a bit of hold. Here are my visual prompts showing a variation on said silhouette:
Lots of gorgeous shape and design inspiration, next thing to do is narrow down ideas and source a fabric. First things first however, is to finish the pair of knitted socks I am in the middle of (birthday present for my boyfriend), before I begin any new projects!! Are any of you guys guilty of unfinished business? I'm awful for having too many ideas at once and letting that stop me from completing things. Naughty.
Here's to some sunshine! We can hope, can't we?? : )
