What to sew? What do I need, but more importantly what do I want. I probably need a few cotton tops, mine are looking a little tired.
I have been looking at these simplicity patterns for tops.
These tops would be ideal for this time of year with the humidity but what I would really like to make is a dress that is a little more fitted, so I think I will sew this.

The fabric has some stretch but I want to challenge myself to do a FBA. Normally I just put elastic in or just try and adjust the pattern but its never quite right so I thought I would give a FBA a go. There are so many wonderful tutorials. Mary from Idle Fancy has inspired me. There is one thing I know straight away is that I will shorten the bodice. I don't like dresses sitting on my non-existent waist so I like the waist higher to be closer to an empire line but not quite. This pattern doesn't have too much bulk on the waistline either. It will be a challenge. All I need to do is to stay focused.
