Blue & White - Autumn Can Wait

 Anda Dress - Burda #7969 - Slightly modified with more fitted waist

Summer shorts - own pattern (using old shorts)
While Autumn is busy out there turning all the leaves into the most amazing reds, yellows, oranges and browns, and while all the other bloggers on this side of the world are already into the Autumn theme, I am, as usual, a bit behind.
So, before there are no leaves left on the trees here I'd like to show you two Blue & White summer creations I made for the summer that went. 

 Me in my Anda Dress, in our lovely country place in Portugal!
The floral fabric is from my local Panduro.

Summer shorts my my cutest little nephew! Gingham fabric from local fabric shop.

 And back pockets cut on the bias with contrasting thread.

Maybe this can be an inspiration for you now, if you're feeling summery, or for next summer!
And just so you know, I'll be posting two more summer projects soon!
But yes, I know it's Autumn!


  1. Já tinha visto no flickr como ficou bonito - e ainda o consegues usar ?
    aqui os dias ainda estão maravilhosos, uma luz estupenda, deve ser parecido com a suécia - quando vivi em bxl era bem diferente o outono, muito mais sombrio ...

  2. I am sad too that summer is at its end now over here. I was grumbling about having to put on a sweater this morning, and I was thinking about my floral skirts lying folded up the drawer!
    So it was a very nice surprise to see your pretty and cheerful blue dress this morning! The shorts are very adorable - I love those bias pockets and red thread.

  3. O vestido está muito bonito! Parabéns:)

  4. Lovely creations! Over here, where summer never ends, that's all we can sew. It's fun to see how other parts of the world are creating according to the changing season. You look so happy in the pretty dress Barbara and that is in Portugal? Simply beautiful!

  5. O vestido ficou o máximo - adoro o tecido!!

  6. Gostei muito tanto do vestido como do calção de menino!

  7. What a lovely dress and short. And you are looking so good in blue!! here it's indian summer, sunny and warm but we know that it can change , leaves are falling and also coloring in those beautiful colors... Did you see my giveaway???
