Spring sewing

Spring is on its way. The fig tree has tiny, bright green leaves and there are a few blossoms appearing on the cherry tree. Summer clothes! After months of winter woollies I can't wait to get into floaty summer stuff. I used to sew most of my clothes but I had a few failures and little time so I haven't made myself anything for years. Until I found this silk fabric at Global. I used a tried and true old Vogue pattern for this pleated skirt. The flower/sunbursts are a lovely rust colour - a bit like the fading camellias I love.

I've bought some more fabric for my next sewing adventure but I must get back to the quilt. Only five rows of quilting left to do before the baby is due in October.
