July Sewing Plans

July Sewing Plans

What happened to May and June? Yes, sadly April was the last Burda challenge I completed. I’m jumping ahead to July, which is almost over anyway. I fell in love with a pair of “bloomers” in the 2015 July Burdastyle issue (the last issue in my supscription – sniff).



And since the month is so far underway, I opted for this simple shirt.


I’ve had a piece of silk in my stash for years that I’m using. I’ve been working on the shirt and as I look at this picture I’ve decided to make those pants as well. I have a piece of rayon satin I just ordered from Denver fabrics hoping to get some dress fabrics. Ordering fabrics online doesn’t always yield the desired results. In this case the scale and shine are much different than I imagined.


I was disappointed at first, but then I started thinking it would make a nice set of pajamas or bathrobe. But now I’m thinking floral, shiny pants. I know I’ll probably only like them for a minute, but I’m super excited anyway.

Thanks for stopping by.
