My June makes are underway. My stash gave me a metre of Cath Kidston cotton duck, bought quite some time ago with vague plans to make seat pads for the kitchen chairs. That never happened, probably because I sensibly decided that with my messy lot they'd be ruined in about a week.
A metre isn't very much, even for a wide fabric like this, but with some clever and economical cutting, and accepting that I might have to add a contrast band at the hem (I'm not a fan of the super mini), I can squeeze out a Colette Hazel.

I'll use a lightweight cotton for the facings and pockets, but that's a good thing as the cotton duck is quite weighty. It's mostly cut out and I'm hoping to start sewing later today.
To wear with it, because every day needs a cardigan companion, I'm working on a new design (with pattern to be published later) and using gorgeously sunny Sirdar Pattercakes in shades of yellow, with perhaps a little hint of that fabulous pink.
Updates soon, I hope. Is anyone else making outfits this summer?
