I'll admit, I just haven't been doing that much sewing lately. I have, however, been planning a lot of sewing projects. I finally signed up for Polyvore the other day. While playing around with some outfit ideas, I stumbled upon a new inspiration resource. Or is it a danger zone? All I know is that I like nearly every piece of clothing I see on Especially the offerings from Click. Scroll on for a tour of my favorites.

What a cute ruffled blouse.
I was struck by how similar it looks to this pattern in the 8/2009 Burda WOF

A cute, but not overly prim spin on the 2fer dress craze-
I also really dig the dirndl waist.

It's a basic linen shirt dress.
The pockets are what make it wearable.

Classic a-line skirt, in linen.
I love the twisted detail at the top of the pockets.
It's also great that so many of these styles have elastic-back waists-
who cares what the waistline looks like when you're just going to throw a belt on over it?

Cute flutter sleeve dress with elastic neckline.
Could there be an easier project than this?

Simple. Pockets. Ballet cardi.

Ruffled front tunic.
It looks nice on her, right?
And my favorite piece of all-
the tie-neck blouse.
I really like how the ends of the tie come to a point.
I also dig this because the turned back sleeves give it a bit of a retro feel.
