Summer sewing is drawing to a close for me. I don't know exactly what happened but I woke up one day and decided I was more in the mood to sew a bomber jacket or button down shirt than a dress. I'm squeezing in one more dress after this and then it's on to fall and winter sewing for me.
I originally used this print for a Sewaholic Saltspring dress. Everybody else seems to love that pattern but when I finished it I was underwhelmed and have never worn it. I think it was sewer error because it looks so great on other people. I love this rayon challis fabric by Joel Dewberry so much that I ordered more and made a Sewaholic Hollyburn out of it instead. I've made this skirt once before and every time I wear it I wonder why I don't have another.
I like the tab detail with the button.
And I also like the style of the pockets.
I never used to like high-waisted styles but I've watched enough episodes of Call The Midwife on BBC that I think I need to be wearing them all the time.
Earlier in the summer, my photographer (my 15 year old son) and I put more effort into staging shots. Now we just drive around town, find a wall, and snap a few pictures in about 3 minutes. This time even the weeds and random wires didn't stop us.
I think we'll get our mojo back when fall sewing comes around.
