Winner! + some sewing plans

The winner of my giveaway is Kara. Congrats and thanks to everyone who commented! I've sent Kara an email.

Reethi has inspired me with her plan to sew 7 dresses in 7 days. i am definitely not so ambitious, but i would like to stitch some new summer clothes to wear on my trip in June. I cut out a Crescent skirt last night in black rayon/linen. I'm doing View A and there's a sewalong so it should be easy to follow.

I want to do at least one Pendrell blouse as well, possibly starting with one of the vintage sheets i recently acquired from the thrift store.

For the other sheet, i was thinking about doing Butterick 5601 while possibly subbing in the fuller skirt from Simplicity 2444.

i have a lot of linen in the stash. i want to use some natural colored linen to make the maxi dress from Butterick 5486. I was thinking about making the sash in a contrasting color, but we'll see.

i'm not 100% decided on this one but i was thinking about Butterick 5455 in white handkerchief linen or black/white floral silk charmeuse.

i love dresses and skirts for summer wear. i've got a couple of weeks yet to hopefully get a few things done.
