I’m joining up for fall!!
I’m trying to choose something for my Sew Weekly Reunion project. It’s a Pantone Color Challenge. Of course, I don’t have a single suitable color in my stash. Well, I have some orange knit in a color that’s close Koi. But, I’m not in the mood to sew with it.
And Rochelle of Lucky Lucille & Tasha of By Gum, By Golly are hosting a sew-along that will challenge me to use my vintage pattern collection.
I’m planning on, finally, using this pattern, Simplicity 4676.
I say finally because I ironed the wrinkles out of the pattern and pinned it to the curtain in my craft room MONTHS ago. It’ll be glad to get down and be useful. I found three great versions of it online:
Looks promising!! Except, I usually hate to have things come up so high up on my chest….It looks really cute, though. And I have a some really nice linen-look cotton in white that would look great. And a dark colored floral lawn that would be good for fall, too. I think the texture and weight of the lawn work better with the bow. But, its sheerness will require additional finishing.
What do you think?
