I don't know how it's already July! But as we are here, I thought I'd make some plans to help me accomplish some sewing this month.
I'm already working through the pattern drafting courses by Cal Patch, via CreativeBug, and plan to continue those this month.
But aside from that, there is also some summer dress sewing that needs doing. I love a summer dress, and I have lots of great fabric that is calling out to be made up. Plus some patterns have been in my stash for quite some time -- so I had to take some time to match them up. Here are just a few that I've sorted so far. I'd like to make at least 2 of these 4 options this month.
I've also decided to finally make myself a Charlie Caftan, and have repurposed a cool thrifted tablecloth to do so. I'm making the non-gathered View A, since this fabric will not adapt to gathers well. If it works, I may try out the gathered view in a rayon challis next. This one has already been cut out -- once I saw the fabric/pattern combo I knew I had to get this one going!
I also have an idea for a quick sewalong challenge later this month, but I'm still working out that one and will be giving more of a Hint about it when I am ready with the details. It'll be a fun Canadian themed dress sewalong, stay tuned for more info...
