Fabric and patterns ready for other summer projects.

Before I post photos of the cotton, summer dress I've just finished making using Simplicity 3833, I'd like to talk about the other sewing projects I've planned to do before the summer heat makes me feel too lazy to sew towards the end of June.

I've got two more dresses in mind. I haven't worn dresses for years but now I really like them and fortunately dresses seem to be very much in fashion again. Here are photos of the dresses I'm going to make next.

Pattern is Simplicity 2174 and the fabric is cotton.

I'm going to make View C which is the third one in the row. It's another Amazing Fit pattern and it's one of Simplicity's early summer new releases, so I haven't been able to find any reviews of it. I'll see how it turns out before deciding whether I'll use it again for another cotton dress.

Here's another cotton print for Simplicity 2174 or 2247.

When I've finished those, I think it will be time for a break from dresses, so then I plan to make to cotton blouses.




  1. i love the look of your summer sewing plans! I like the Simplicity Amazing Fit range of patterns so I will be very interested to see how you get on with this new one - the fabric you have chosen looks very pretty, just right for this style.

  2. Such lovely patterned fabric, can't wait to see them all made up!
