1. A Tangerine Colored Garment
I have loads of orange fabric in my collection (just have to get it out of a bin!) and since it's the color of the year, I definitely want another garment made from this color for spring/summer...not a dress probably a skirt...since I already own an orange linen dress...see below.
2. Floral Prints
I will probably make more than one piece using some of the floral fabrics I've collected. I love floral prints. A few more summery pieces to mix and match with the core professional wardrobe I've already assembled would be great.

3. Clashing prints
These clashing print pieces really intrigue me...I will have to figure out a way to use them and make them work in my corporate wardrobe. Right now I'm thinking of a floral and a pinstripe combo something that makes the point without being over the top!
Been there, done that, quite willing to do it again only using the bright colors favored this season!
5. A pop of color
The magazines are showing it as a pair of shoes, or a purse, scarf or top in a vibrant shade worn with dark solid colors. I can do that ~ no problem!
6. Vibrant colors
In summers past I've made quite a few dresses in bright colors...
This summer I want another bright grape colored dress in a sheath version. I've owned the perfect piece of grape colored rayon blend fabric for several years. This is the year it becomes a garment.
I own the fabric and I know what type of dress I want to make it...I just have to make it!
8. A dress
Okay that's a given! *LOL* But I would like to use several of the 1000s of dress patterns I already own plus a few more that I've recently purchased. Also, I'm cruising this summer so I will need some pretty vacation clothes...clothes that I want to make...which will include some maxi dresses.
9. A pair of wedges
Yes, this is a style that I've worn before but they are classics.
This is the pair I'm thinking of purchasing...a pair of patent leather wedges...so kewl and updated!
All of this to say that spring is here and winter has quietly faded away, so I'm making up my spring/summer sewing list. Stay tuned and see how many of the trends I actually get made up!
...as always, more later!
