Putting Away Winter Sewing

Every year I find it difficult to switch my sewing seasons. It's hard to imagine wearing that little spaghetti strap dress when you're having a blizzard. Even worse is sewing wool in the heat of Summer. Just the tactile experience is miserable.
 It's so lovely sewing cashmere on a cold dreary March day, but it's time to pack away all cold weather sewing . I'm finding it painful, to say the least.
I can stretch out the men's sewing just because men's clothing is a bit less seasonal but wool dresses? They've got to be tagged and stored. Even the ones that are halfway finished. Ugh.
So the idea of this post is partially to give myself encouragement by showing you some new, bright, Spring/Summer clothes. Some of them have already been sold. You'd think that would be encouraging all by itself.

Teeshirts Make a Tee Dress

Teeshirts Make a Tee Dress
I've been busy taking lots of pictures of clothing. Some great images, some not.
I needed to get started and this is at least getting a start underway.
So here is one of my tee dresses. I even have before and after pics this time.

This shirt had an added black yarn decoration from it's previous owner

There was a hole at the back neck which required a small patch
