The weather has been ridiculously beautiful in the Bay Area. Even though it felt a bit silly making a cotton summer dress at this time of year, it turned out to be weather appropriate with the addition of a lightweight cardigan. Who could have guessed?!
All in all, a very successful and “free” project (Spring cleaning at its best!). I even had a teal invisible zipper on hand that worked with the print . . . weird, since I never seem to have a simple black zipper when I need one!
The flowers are blooming, the bees are buzzing, and I am feeling the need to re-organize the sewing room. Although, the urge usually strikes late at night . . . I wish I would feel motivated during the daylight hours. But I should probably finish a couple of in-progress garments first.
I think I may have to try making more wearable muslins in the future . . .
