You might miss it

The summer weeks are flying by, it's the middle of July, and I feel like I spend so much time worrying that I'm going to miss summer, that I'm missing it.

Last weekend it rained, so that was a wash. I did at least accomplish my pillow project and I'm feeling a bit excited and emboldened by that. I might want to attempt something else - something to wear, naturally. Maybe there will be a spark next time I find myself in the fabric store and I can share the garment I'm dreaming of with you.

  1. Summer is an elusive thing. We had a beautiful spring but since the beginning of July, it has mostly been rainy and cold - I was just lamenting to my best friend that I feel like summer came in April and now spring has arrived. It's hard not to feel like you're missing out when you have so little time to enjoy summer with a busy work schedule and the time you do have isn't summer at all. With that said, it has been perfect culotte weather and I'm taking solace in the fact that I'm getting a lot more wear out of the pair that I have than I expected to. I haven't worn them with nude sandals though I just may have to, I love the combination on you!

  2. I'm starting to get that overwhelmed feeling about summer going by too quickly too. I feel like I've done a lot, but there's still so much I want to do. And yes, please share your creations with us! Love the colors and print of that pretty top too!

  3. Those culottes are so fun!! I always love how they look like skirts.
    Yea, Summer is definitely flying by. I feel like I've been rushing hoping for the end of July since that's when my two vacations start. and its almost here! After that I'll have nothing to look forward to,haha

  4. You look beautiful! I can't believe it's already the middle of July! So crazy! I use a chalkboard and make a Summer Bucket List to kind of plan out things we want to do!

  5. You just reminded me that I need to wear my culottes more. I have one pair. One pair and I still struggle with it.
    I'm looking forward to seeing what you're gonna sew!

  6. Pretty top and it looks great with your culottes.

  7. Love the pretty wrap blouse and hope you will share your next sewing project with us.


  8. Normally I worry about summer passing me by, too. I am so glad we took our summer vacation earlier this year so I feel like we still have time to enjoy the rest of summer before I start back at work. I love those culottes on you!

  9. That printed top is beautiful - love the colours and style :)

    Glad you made the most of the rain and completed a project, but hope that the weather improves for you to enjoy the rest of your summer.

    Hope you're having a great weekend :)

  10. Oh that top is magnificent! I love the bold colors and the fun print! And it looks amazing with the culottes. I am also waiting for inspiration to create something unique to wear. I also am waiting for an experienced seamstress to help me create it! Ha! I would love for you to join my On the Edge of the Week Link Up which goes live every Thursday at 5:00 p.m. EST!


  11. What a lovely top! Congrats on finishing the pillow. I need a project for the summer!

  12. I feel you. Sometimes it's too hot for me to enjoy the summer lest it be during the evenings or early mornings. But I am starting to relax, so I suppose that's some sort of accomplishment. :)
