Spring Sewing

Hi,

What are you sewing for spring? I’m going to try working on two projects this month: a vintage dress for Spring for Cotton – a group sewalong organized by Lucky Lucille (March 20-April 30) …

… and a garment from She Wears the Pants, a Japanese sewing book by Yuko Takada, which I’m reviewing for Tuttle Publishing.

I’m thinking of making the vintage dress and jacket in cotton pique. My goal is to wear it to a magazine awards event on May 1. The trade magazine I work for is a finalist for nine (!) awards. The awards event is in Los Angeles and it will be warm down there!

I like the striped top on the cover of She Wears the Pants, and a few other tops in this book. A couple of the mini dresses would work as tunics, such as this one. I wouldn’t wear anything this short but I would wear it with pants. (Photo taken with phone so excuse the quality. In fact this entire post was done on my phone!)

After I review this book, I’ll be holding a giveaway for a copy of it – so stay tuned!

Please feel free to share your spring sewing plans – and happy sewing!
