This summer I have rediscovered my love of cotton (I am beginning to feel like one of those silly "fabric of our lives" commercials).
Sure, I have been wearing some of my rayon dresses, but most days I am drawn to the cotton clothing in my closet.
It probably has a lot to do with all of the hot weather, but I have also remembered how fabulous it is to sew with this fiber!
Sometimes the original pattern design is not very practical, but I could not resist this pattern. So I made myself a day dress instead of a gown. It also saves a lot of fabric!
And I love the knee-length skirt! In the lightweight fabric it has a wonderful floaty feeling, but because the seam starts at the hip, it does not feel like it is going to end up blowing up over my head.
Skirts with a yoked waistband are not my favorite, but I think I am going to try to figure out another way to use this pattern to make myself a skirt . . . or maybe I just need another dress!
I should probably start thinking about Fall sewing, but I am having so much fun working with these lightweight cottons!
