I'm going to make Simplicity 1699, Dress view -- out of light cotton -- because I am Sick.Of.Winter!! It has been so wintery here, with a blizzard just 2 days ago and -20C predicted tonight. I need to encourage Spring to make an appearance, so am going to start right in on summer sewing.
This is my first attempt at making a dress from novelty quilting cotton, but it's a very light and fluid cotton. I've had it for at least 15 years as I bought it originally to make a quilt with the theme of Space Odyssey 2001. Hmmm. Never got made, so here goes with a starry dress! I'm going to add piping in the neckline and sleeve hems, something I've never tried before. I'm attempting to learn something new with each of my sewing projects this year, and this one is piping.
