The Summer Spark Sew-along is the baby of Ali of The Wardrobe Reimagined , Sarah of Rhinestones & Telephones and Alessa of Farbenfreude. The premise is that we sew one Summer garment over the course of June, nice and pressure free ey?
I've been deliberating on what I want to sew, I initially thought I would make a Lonsdale dress, but I'm not sure how much wear I would get out of it, considering the 'great' British weather we are
I'm starting out with Simplicity 2868
I know, the pattern envelope is hideous, I bought it because the Jacket was of a very similar shape to one I'd seen on Modcloth, and the trousers and the skirt looked like easy work appropriate basics. I've already made up the trousers once and got a decent fit, so I won't have to do another toile.
I am going to redraft them into a jeansy pattern, taking inspiration from these by Retrospect'd
and these by Freddies of Pinewood
Pretty neat looking dontcha think?
In other new's I have been pushing through my UFOs and have finished a skirt, a dress and a top however they all still need to be photographed, hopefully that will get done at the weekend
