Escaping Winter at the Sewing Machine: The Cotton Maxi Dress!

Hello All,

It’s been a few days since my last posts, but just a few minutes since my last sewing project. πŸ™‚ Β Been busy , aren’t we all! I am not alone. But sewing continues. πŸ™‚

As a sewing enthusiast I can totally escape the current winter blues at my sewing machine. Just one piece it takes. Here she is. My first summer dress. Yes, I said the word Summer and we are experiencing -20 Degrees weather here in Toronto. πŸ™‚

It was a mock up I made a few weeks back while making a dress for a friend. I took my time with it as I really wanted it to be wearable in the end. It worked, so I am keeping her.

This cotton piece will be perfect for the summer weather. It can also be paired with a denim jacket too and different fun belts! It carries a pocket on each side making it a functional piece for me.





The sewing chronicles continues.. Escaping during winter at the machine! Look out for my tunic beach coverup/sheer summer piece for 2015.

How have you been escaping with sewing this winter? Are you anticipating Summer/Spring pieces already? Or are you Β still buying more sweater dresses for winter? Whatever you are doing I encourage you to not get the winter blues. Dig into your cloth stash and Β find something colourful, bold and spring/summer looking and escape!

Just keep sewing, just keep sewing, what do we do we seeeeeeewwwwwwwwwww….until next time…

Much love

  1. Oh my gosh, this dress looks wonderful! The wide belt looks especially amazing with it and the silhouette is gorgeous. I’m sure you’ll get lots of wear out of it once the seasons cooperate! =D

    I’m pretty much limited to sewing my “homework” for my coat workshop at this point, but if I can get some free time (LOL!) I’d like to work on pants before it gets any closer to Spring! (And you have my sympathy for the weather–it’s been below 0F here lately and we’re ready for it to be done too!)

  2. Lovely dress and that belt gives the necessary shape, to bad you can’t wear it now but spring is not far, with a cardigan it will be perfect. By the way i was in Toronto last summer, really enjoyed the walks by the lake, beautiful city!

    1. Thanks Idaaida… πŸ™‚ I know I can’t wait to wear it. :)….. Toronto is a beautiful City. ..Now its just covered with snow.. haha πŸ™‚

    1. Thanks Linda! Glad to hear you are still working on the wardrobe….you are inspiring me to make more clothes of my own. It’s only the beginning πŸ™‚
