I want to inform your sewing with specific suggestions about color, texture, and design that reflect high-fashion trends. Spring/Summer 2013 presents easy-to-wear and comfortable clothes that nevertheless are feminine. In the relaxed atmosphere of the season, the sewing excitement comes from interesting design lines, lush fabrics, and inviting colors. You’re sure to find enticing ideas for sewing new wardrobe classics in this article by Connie Crawford from Threads #166.
