It seems I’m always creating out of season, this is Alice is my new summer top. It is made in cotton double gauze from nani iro. It feels a little big so I think I will make a size smaller for the next one, I have already the fabric laid out so I can start as soon as I get a free moment. I was inspired to make this when I saw the beautiful red version Elizabeth from Sewn by Elizabeth made for her mother in law, it just seemed like the perfect fit for me. I have ordered some navy trouser weight cotton for a pair of shorts, to go with it and then I will be ready for summer, although I’m still longing for some proper winter with snow that stays for at least a month. I haven’t decided whether I shall use the Esther shorts pattern and modify it to have a front zipper and pockets both front and back or whether I shall buy the Tap shorts pattern that already have all the nice details and just fit it instead.

    It is stunning. It looks so light, perfect for your eventual summer arrival.
    I really nearly to make another one for myself in a lighter shade. I’m definitely not ready to start sewing for winter!

      Thank you, light colous are a bit easier to wear on tops and you don’t have worry about the sun warming the fabric well as the heat. I’m swedish and really don’t take the heat very well if I’m not able to take a swim several times a day and think the best vacation is to go skiing.

      Thank you, I don’t really need that much cloths any more, it not like I don’t have any thing do wear, and I don’t want to have an massive and un realistic amount of cloths eater, but still loving to make stuff I now try to make those pieces that will turn my wardrobe for a splash of colour to something more “professional” hate to say it but most people don’t really take you seriously in to colourful cloths and I want to be takes seriously as I’m soon a master of sciences applying for a Phd position or similar, if everything goes well.
      I want to feel more well dressed and a bit more vintage feeling over all of it without having to change it all.
      This wasn’t a very relevant reply but this is how it is an hour after a massive exam. Good luck with your winter goodies, I’m looking forward to seeing more of your new jeans.

    Åh den är jättefin! Jag använder linnen året om så jag skulle kunna sy massor! (om jag sydde lite oftare hehe ;)) Och den gröna koftan var också superhärlig 🙂

      Tack ja den är underbar, jag har gjort en till i ett mörkt ros tyg som jag hoppas få fotograferat snart. Koftan som jag var lite eller mycket tveksam över är så otroligt användbar att jag nästan bara använder den när jag är i skolan väldigt oväntat och jag är så glad att jag inte repade upp alltsammans halvvägs när tvivlet var stort.
