What to make in June?

I can’t believe how wet and miserable May turned out to be this year!  Going through my Me Made May photos for previous years reveals tees and viscose trousers, cropped linen pants and floaty outfits!  This time – jeans, jumpers, long sleeves and trainers, one open shoes only twice!  brrr

I have done a bit of fabric shopping though, in preperation for June being much, much nicer than May!  And if today is anything to go by, we’re in for a treat! (But I’m not hopping about madly just yet.)  I bought what was described as olive and ecru leaf print viscose (turns out more green than olive) to make another Olya Shirt and a piece of olive cotton/linen blend for trousers to wear with the leaf print.  I also caved and bought a RTW olive and ecru striped tee while on holiday!  In St Ives I found the teeniest little wool and fabric shop on Fore St, and ended up buying a gorgeous chambray that will make the “denim” Teddy Designer Pants I’ve been wanting for ages and some natural coloured linen for maybe a pair of Kew Pants again.  I do like that pattern.

So – I have grey linen, natural linen and olive linen for pants, green and ecru viscose for a shirt and some blue and white striped jersey that’s definitely going to be a new Basic Instinct tee.  I also want to use the remains of the tencel twill that made the daughters’ pjs – I think I can make short pj pants and a cami out of what’s left, just need to tetris the pieces a bit!  I also want to make something with bits of left over linen in navy, white, rust and a blue/black and white print.  But I’m not good a patchworking and colour blocking, so we’ll have to see how that pans out.  Of course, now the weather has turned, the garden is calling louder than ever and the veggies all want planting out, so sewing time and planting time are in direct competition with each other!!!

I love fabric, and sewing. And I could do nothing else but sew, all day, every day, if I could!

  1. Guess you’ll just have to divvy up your time – half to garden, half to sewing. On days when it’s too wet to garden, sewing will have to do. (My, but that olive linen looks interesting. 😉)
    Know you’ll be enjoying yourself, no matter what you do!
