It’s the May Bank Holiday, long weekend in Ireland and I hope to fit some sewing in. I’ve been lacking separates in my wardrobe so a blouse was called for. Colette Pattern’s Jasmine blouse is a great base for this floral fabric. Megan Nielsen’s Darling Ranges dress is such a fabulous pattern and I found the perfect fabric for it. I think these will come in handy for Me Mad May! What sewing plans do you have this weekend?

      Indeed I was! I didn’t manage to get everything done but almost! Not much left to do :)

  • louise tracey

    they both look like good matches, happy sewing!

    • Stephanie

      I was delighted when I found these fabrics. I guess the fabric gods were shining on me :)

  • Erica

    I ordered some fabric that I was hoping would arrive this weekend, but it’s not here yet. No sewing for me right now, I guess, but I’m making sewing plans!! :)

    • Stephanie

      Aw I hate when that happens. Hopefully this week you’ll be able to get started.

      • Erica P

        Thanks girl! My fabrics finally arrived yesterday! Yay! I’m gonna work on the Colette Laurel next! :)

  • Lorie~Ferndale Lane

    I love the fabric! Can’t wait to see the finished products, esp the super cute blouse!

    • Stephanie

      Thanks Lorie! I think the blouse will be really cute and I hope to make a matching skirt too.

  • Katy

    What beautiful fabric!

    • Stephanie

      Thanks Katy! I was really happy when I found both fabrics.

  • Kelly

    ooh, these are both going to be beautiful pieces! I can’t wait to see them.

    • Stephanie

      I’ve gotten the dress finished now and I’m really happy with it. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time to finish the blouse but it shouldn’t take too long more :)

  • Ginger

    How fun! Love your sewing plans! Sadly not much sewing for me this weekend– I REALLY needed to do some serious cleaning, so that’s what I did. :) Looking forward to sewing this week, though.

    • Stephanie

      I probably should have cleaned my house this weekend instead of sewing. Oh well, sewing has to take priority sometimes :) Happy sewing this week!

    The jasmine is in my stash just waiting for the right fabric to come along, I love your choice, can’t wait to see it!!

    • Stephanie

      Ya it’s been in my stash for about a year now. When I saw this fabric I thought it would be a great match. I didn’t quite get it finished over the long weekend but it won’t be long before I do :)

  • Thimble & Cork

    Love them both! Can’t wait to see your finished garments!
