Oh My, I would love for spring to come and stay in Chi-town for at least a week. But I guess Chicago weather is what it normally is. We have two seasons: summer and winter. The week before Mother’s Day we had temperatures in the 80’s. But on Mother’s Day is was cold and damp.
I was ready to show off my big hat and new dress when all hopes were dashed by the cumulative clouds and the strong trade winds of my fair city. But I braved the chill to take a few photos on Monday and Thursday.
This cotton twill has a touch of lycra for easy wearing. It’s great for jackets and skirts too.
This was the second time that I used this pattern. I made view A several years ago. It’s been so long ago, I had to up the size a bit. For this version (view B), I hand picked the zipper (no beads this time).
I really like this pattern and will probably use it again for the fulls skirt version. It does have options and it is very easy to make.
So I’ll have to wait for a bright sunny day to wear my new bold print frock. Summer will be here soon. Wink, wink.
