Feeling Inspired!

I've been itching to sew something for myself lately. Maybe it's the change of seasons, or Rae's Spring Top Challenge, or all the new patterns coming out right now. Whatever it is, I've been looking at all those lovely things in the spring catalogs with that "I could probably make that" mindset.

Here are just a few of the things that have caught my eye recently:

Pleat Blouse from Plumo

Cloudless Skies Skirt from Anthropologie

Positano Dress from Sundance
Backswept Dress from Anthropologie

What about you? What are you planning to make for yourself this summer? Something easy going and relaxed? Something perfect for a day at the beach or a stylish night out? Do tell!

Happy sewing!

The Anthropologie dress is gorgeous! I wish I could sew well enough to make myself clothes and then actually wear them. One day I will take a class, or just pluck up the courage to practice. It's coming on winter in this hemisphere, so I'm learning to crochet and to knit more complex stitches than knit and purl (I hope!).
