The clocks have sprung forward an hour. It's light longer and here on the East Coast it's been a relatively mild winter. I, for one, haven't missed the snow piles or the bitterly cold days. So it's with a happy heart that I'm emerging from the darkness of winter and thinking of Spring.
My company has updated it's work from home policy and we're now required to be in the office 4 days a month. Since I absolutely HATE carting my laptop back and forth, I'm going to be in the office 2 days a week from now until at least October/November...which has made me want to sew some new garments.
I've been looking at the spring/summer offerings online, saving pics of items that caught my eyes. These two interpretations of the same dress sparked an interest.
Probably because I've made it before and this dress is still hanging in my closet.
It's from an out of print, Simplicity 2894 pattern. When I made it in 2017, I had planned to make more. That never happened but I really want to make a few this year because it was an easy to wear, very comfortable dress. I have several printed linens that would look amazing in this silhouette. Of course I will maximize it since my ankles don't look as good as they did in 2017.
I've been thinking about what I want to sew for spring. Again it won't be a garment a week because I don't have the need even with going back to my office. However, I'd like to add some different dress silhouettes to work with the dresses I made last year. I'd also like to add some tops/blouses and toppers to wear over jeans. Realistically it doesn't get dress warm until late May/early June so a couple of those would be nice to add to my wardrobe too.
Those are my thoughts as we roll further into March with Spring on the horizon...
...as always more later!
