I stay stitched the waistline of skirt and neckline of bodice. I added the thread tracings to mark my 1" seam allowance on the top of the skirt and the rest was only basting seams. Now I am waiting until we have our group meet up in a few weeks.

Right now I have Simplicty 3857 pattern on my mind. The Pattern is a size smaller than what I would normally choose so I will have to do some adjustments. I plan to do view 2 and omit the pockets. Cute right? It would make a nice addition to my everyday items to wear with skirts or shorts this summer.

I also have my eye on Gertie's Shirtdress from her New Book for Better Sewing
I liked this one right away when I first opened the book and keep have returning to it.
I finally decided to splurge on some lovely retro inspired Liberty of London fabric also ordered form Fabric.com. I can see myself wearing this all summer.Don't you think this is a great fabric choice?
As I have been dreaming of what is next, my daughter has been doing the same.I guess it is in the air. She love retro fashion and wants a classic retro inspired playsuit with a skirt. Something like this.Except with a full closure instead of a tie on waist.

She would sew it herself but is busy in camp over the next few weeks. It really looks straight forward so I offered to sew it for her.The skirt should come together easily but fitting the top may be a challenge because she is so small.I am now looking for simple patterns for the top from our vintage stash .
After all its Summer In Seattle and time for summer clothes. Do you agree?
