Summer Sewing Plans

Like all good plans, they're bound to get abandoned as I get distracted by other ideas, but these are some projects that have been playing on my mind and which I'd love to sew up this Summer. At first glance these garments don't seem to go together at all. But as I looked a little closer I realised two things. Firstly, the patterns are all from totally different sources (vintage, independent, self-drafted, commercial) but they all have a similar kinda relaxed chic vibe going on and more than a smattering of 1970s influence. Secondly, I just can't help myself as far as brown polka dots, bright red and soft bright blue cottons are concerned. Seriously, if you looked in my fabric stash you'd laugh at the repetition there. I know what I like!

What are your Summer sewing plans? Do you tend to stick to your sewing plans or abandon them as other ideas emerge?

PS. Have you seen the design competition that The Sewing Directory is running this month? The prizes are really great - snazzy sewing machine and fabric vouchers!
