It's freezing outside. The best panacea: Sew a summer dress.


It's 5 below outside and all you can think about is the summer sun beating down on your shoulders. You're almost done with the wool Aqua_linengabardine slacks you've been making. And when you are, you're making something sleeveless, something linen, something that screams summer. Something like this divine Vogue Paris Original 1951 by Laroche. Unusual lines on the shoulders, lines that are flattering, lines that will highlight one of your very best features. Absolutely.

And you'll order that luscious turquoise linen at Mood. The perfect color to highlight your caramel brown eyes.

Oh, you feel warmer just thinking about it.
