my favorite color lately June 15, 2009

We went out this weekend and found some new chairs for the backyard

which I totally love, they remind me so much of the Sunset cover I fell for.

my new sandals

Orange has been a total pick-me-up for me lately. I’ve been wearing the sandals a ton with the new retro shift dress I sewed — the combination is perfect for summer. I added a few tweaks and variations to Christine’s original idea and I just love it, I’ve already found the fabric for my next one.

I’m writing a review of Chic & Simple Sewing this week now that I’ve had a chance to sew from it, with lots of pictures from my project (which, believe it or not, isn’t orange and neither is the next one I’m planning — but I did get some of this at Cool Cottons to make a skirt!).
