I also use this time each week to welcome new followers to my blog - so hi and welcome to Lyn J, Lyn P and Claudia - all of you following with Bloglovin.
*This week saw the end of a block of work I did not enjoy so now I shall have a little more energy for my blog - which I want to rework and get into some sort of order (organisation being something I love!).
I am also looking forward to catching up on some sewing - and with winter half way through here it's time to think about spring/summer sewing.
I'll start with making practical, classic, casual basics that I can wear around the house or out and about in more relaxed situations. I like plain cotton as I live in a humid climate - and cotton breathes and lets perspiration evaporate, which allows the body to cool. I also travel to Adelaide occasionally, and sometimes land in the middle of a heatwave (well over the 100 degree mark). So loose cotton clothes essential.
The first garment I will make will be a New Look Shirt/Blouse (6963).
|New Look 6963.|
I plan to make it in pink cotton broadcloth - I have laid the pattern on the fabric in the picture above.
I have made this blouse before in cotton broadcloth:
It makes up quite nicely and I really like it's crisp, clean lines.
That will be my first project of the season. There are lots more ideas in the pipeline, and many of the muslins have been made - you can find them on the page at the top of this blog named "Muslin Gallery".
Do you plan your sewing ahead of the season or do you sew just as it comes?
