With such glorious weather, Spring seems to have come early this year – which makes it the perfect time to stitch up some warm weather frocks.
Step 1: Spring Cleaning
For me, Spring is the perfect excuse to pull out some color. And cotton is a perfect fabric choice. Apples are more of a Fall crop, but this aqua/red/spring green novelty quilting cotton feels very appropriate for the season and caught my eye while I was digging through stacks of fabric.
[Quilting cotton used as an apparel fabric sometimes gets a bad rap, but as long as you pick the right project, it works beautifully. It is also an excellent choice for beginners since it behaves itself during construction.]
This was also an opportunity to do a little Spring Cleaning in the sewing room! All of the items used for this dress are leftovers, or stashed items that have been abandoned for quite some time. I just love it when that happens!
