I have been doing some Spring sewing lately, because I have a girlie that is growing like a weed. And first on the list was a new Vintagely Modern Skirt, this time in Chambray. Man, oh, man am I loving chambray right now. I want to make some shorts, a shirt dress (for me) and some boys’ things all out of chambray. Good thing I ordered 5 yards of it last summer and never got to it…because I now want to do everything out of it! The only thing I changed on the skirt tutorial above was to add a side-zipper into the side seam. I think it makes for a more grown-up girl look and since I don’t need to keep moving buttons over (just lengthening hems) zippers are fantastic.
We styled the skirt for Winter/Spring with a white-button-down and a dress that I made 2 years ago that still fits but is wayyy to short to wear alone. And I think the outfit came out so cute. I think we need to layer more often. Either that or maybe it is time to refashion that dress into a shirt.
Are you loving any type of fabric for Spring?
