because summer will come

One day recently I came across a picture of a sewing pattern
for a garment that is just about exactly what I've been imagining
for several years.

Imagine that!

It took a couple of hours to figure out how to order it online.

And now it's here.
Time to dust off Auntie Ruby's Singer Featherweight!

With very good luck,
by Summertime (no rush, no pressure)
I shall have a functional yet stylish,
rugged yet comfortable,
smock/dress garment
suitable for gardening, and throwing hay,
and feeding hens and stirring dyepots
and lounging with a glass of iced tea.
The sort of garment I hope I'll reach for every day.

The search is on for appropriate fabric.
I'm thinking something the color
of goat hoofprints would be good.

Really? Why would you think that?

Disclaimer/Disclosure: I'm not much of a seamstress
(Sew-er? Sewperson?)
but I'm quite excited about this project.

And when a simple dress pattern arrives
packaged like this:

 I feel tremendously encouraged.

I shall do my best!

And after all, it's just one foot in front of the other, right?


Wish me luck!
