Sneak Peak...Spring 2012!

I'm all ready excited for spring! Maybe it's the warm weather we've had (55 degrees today!) or that all the stores are teasing me with all their spring collections! I don't know what it is, but I've already started planning Gianna's spring wardrobe. I thought I'd start  2012 off with showing you a sneak peak of what's to come on Gia Rose Sews! So here goes....

Oh boy, I'm in love with a few pieces! One being this simple mustard top.

I thought I'd do a little pattern remix using Leila & Ben peasant top pattern. I'm going to mix it up a bit and do over sized 3/4 length sleeves and add some lace detailing. I'm envisioning this tunic top with a pair of cute white shorts.


Next up will be a pair lightweight jeans with searsucker detailing. 
I love searsucker for summer, it's so lightweight and cool. 
I might just have to make a cute jacket out of some white and yellow print

Back to the pants. I'm going to use my new pants pattern from Ben & Mia
It's a great pocket pants pattern with piping details. 

Only picture them in denim and seersucker piping..


Another staple in Gianna's spring wardrobe will be a pair of lightweight
linen pants. I'm thinking maybe a super light khaki or maybe white
(I can spot bleach white so they may stay clean)

I'll probably use the same pocket pants pattern but remix it 
a bit to do square pockets and a drawstring waist!

The next top I've been wanting to try for awhile, but haven't gotten around to it yet. 
It's actually a refashion for a plain tee that G already has...

The tutorial is by Make It & Love It. 

I also have a pattern for some leggings (by Lil Blue Boo)
 that I think I'll use to make Gianna a pair of matching ones! 

I haven't quite decided on the colors yet...maybe a sweet light purple...

I have a feeling a lot of skirts will be in the works for Gianna this
spring and summer. She seems to be in love with anything that resembles
a tutu! 

When I saw this skirt on Pinterest I knew I had to remake it. 
Now I just need to think (or find) a cute top to match!


And last (for now!) I found the perfect skirt tutorial for Gianna's
Easter outfit......

Simply Homemade has a free tutorial and
Violette Field Threads has a pattern too!

I just love it! Very simple but elegant.


Hope you enjoyed the sneak peak! Hope to see you a lot 2012!
