I have a baby shower, a christening and a wedding coming up this summer, so I thought now would be the perfect time to pull out some patterns and get to planning.
Here is my first project - I'm going to cut this tonight. It's a cute border print fabric that I got from Joann's and I'm going to make it up in this Simplicity Simple Solutions patterns. I plan on making view B, with the fuller skirt. This will be for the baby shower - I'll probably pair it with a plain white T or tank top.
For the christening, I'm going to make up this Lisette dress. I'm not sure what kind of fabric I will use just yet. I might buy some of the blue print that is used on the cover of the pattern, although the yellow is cute too.
I think I'm going to use this pattern for the wedding. It's not until Labor Day weekend, so I'm sure I'll change my mind before then - but for now, this is it. I want to find some really special fabric to use and I'm going to make view C. It's an outdoor wedding and I think with the right fabric and accessories, this will be the perfect choice.
I've also been wanting to make this Cynthia Rowley pattern up for a while. I have a bright turquoise Interlock from Joann's that I bought with this pattern in mind. This will make a great summer dress for cookouts or even just running errands.
