I had to make an emergency yarn run yesterday, so I stopped by the pattern department for a quick look. We are actually still in cold weather here in the heart of Texas, but it won’t be long before the sun is burning us alive. I started thinking that I should probably start sewing up some summer items now, so they are ready for battle when the time comes!
I’m already on the hunt for my next pattern, so let me know if you see anything awesome!
It probably started with the floppy hat I HAD TO HAVE for Hawaii. I couldn’t possibly lay on the beach without one, and I am pretty sure it was the first non-food item my guy bought for me after we got married.
Hats are the coolest. A big old hat makes you look mysterious and awesome, especially if it hides your face a bit. So much drama. I also love that during some eras, your outfit wasn’t complete without a matching hat. It was necessary.
I just started a hats pinterest board, and I love it. If you like big hats, you’ll probably like it too!
These just look so girly and delicate. Maybe the balloons make me feel like I can’t attend a wedding party without one. Find them here.
I have always stayed away from long dresses, since I am super tiny, and I thought they would made me look even shorter. Is that even true? Anyway, I love how long dresses look so effortlessly cool and put together. I want a whole closet of them for summer.
This only comes in kid sizes, but I think its true for adults too. (found here)
I love these dresses. The dresses just look like they are ready for a party. Especially the dresses with the umbrellas. Those dresses are about to get crazy. I am always drawn to the mix-and-match florals and colors.
I saw this on Fab today, and it just made me giggle for some reason. A cat reading a book. And then they said in the description that it was reading a tale of two kitties…hehehe.
