Currently, my favorite color is mint green, preferably in combination with soft pink and mustard yellow. No need to explain that I had been drooling over April Rhodes’ Arizona line weeks before it was released. 

These are some of the most anticipated fabrics of the year (and, arguably, in human history). I bought a bunch of them at Finch Sewing Studio to make a play quilt for Ava. They were so pretty, however, that I couldn’t resist making a dress in them too. And then another one. And the third is in the making (does anyone know of a treatment for Arizonaddiction?) Let me just show you the first one today

This is a simple spaghetti strap sundress, with a little pleating detail in the front. The pattern will be available soon. The fabrics are Triangle Tokens (bodice) and Crystal Arrowheads (skirt).

The dress is a bit too long – it should be above the knee – so I’ll probably shorten the hem a bit.

I’m soooo happy to finally be able to blog something, by the way. The past weeks have been so busy; at uni (thesis time!) and sewing wise too (book contributions; new patterns; my own Secret Squirrel creation; upcoming series). I finished this dress two weeks ago already, and just didn’t get round to write about it. I missed blogging so much!
So, what are your favorite new/upcoming fabric collections for this Summer?

  1. kinderen groeien altijd extra snel in de zomermaanden, dus misschien kan je gewoon ook eventjes afwachten en kijken of je dochter er niet gewoon ingroeit? Dan moet je al die moeite niet doen om het nog een keer om te zomen. Ik weet niet hoe het bij jouw zit, maar ik ben zelf een beetje een ongeduldig type: ik heb een hekel aan verstelwerken, en creëer liever iets nieuws.

  2. I love your style, An. I have this fabric (mint with triangles) on my sewing table right now! Can't wait to try it out! I love your dress and the two fabrics look great together!

  3. Ze staat prachtig met het stofje, en ik ben ook fan van de plooitjes bovenaan. Ik probeer alle nieuwe stofjes zoveel mogelijk te negeren, wegens een -nog steeds- overvolle stoffenkast.
