I've just received this pretty cotton lawn from Croftmill
  [ You are not allowed to view attachments ]  I'll probably make a long skirt out of it as it is very light and airy, just perfect for a hot summer day and lots of colours in the pattern so easy to pick a t-shirt to go with it.

Lovely.   :D

Summer is going to come, and everything will be better.  Let's dress for it!!
I might look as though I'm talking to you, but inside my head I'm sewing.

@Silver Rose  I used that for my Margo robe set, it's beautiful isn't it? I can't wait to wear it when the weather allows  :loveit:

You have good taste darling  ;)
Let it sew, let it sew, let it sew

Thanks @snoozi soozi , it is lovely, the pattern is a bit larger than I thought but I hope it will work for an 8 panelled long skirt. I've just finished the llama nightshirt so that'll be the next project.

Hmm, I think I have that fabric around somewhere too!  I wonder where it is..... ;)  It's very pretty anyway!

@snoozi soozi  I've just looked back at your robe set, I remember it but not the fabric, it is lovely and light, just right for mooching about on summer evenings :D
