So I’ve been really digging on all these planning posts that have been cropping up in my feed. Love, love, love me a good list! Because then I can tick things off the list.
So that’s where I will start, by revisiting my last planning post.
Named Alip Chinos (pattern in photo above) – completed today. Yet be photographed, but coming to a blog post near you soon.
And now to the fun stuff! What’s coming up??!!
A self drafted sweatshirt made out of neon pink velvet from Spotlight. This fabric narrowly escaped the same fate as the silver velvet as it was intended to be a bowline. Instead it will be a dropped shoulder slouchy sweatshirt instead.
Sewhouse Seven Alberta Skirt that I won during Indie Pattern Month at The Monthly Stitch. I will make it up with this black and white wool/rayon/poly blend that I got in the great fabric haul (GFH) of earlier this year.
An A-Line tea length skirt from this pattern that has been in our family for its entire life (my mum was a proper hippie babe and rocked many long A-Line skirts) in this blue cord again from the GFH. I probably won’t make it quite as flare-y as the pattern calls for, and I may have it button through the front. We shall see.
The next pair of Papercut Guise Pants in this delightful pale lilac linen from the GFH. There is 6 metres of this, so I have visions of making a long shift dress for summer too.
Two pairs of Simple Sew Culottes. This pattern was recently gifted to me by the lovely and generous Camilla over at Making and Marking when she was destashing her pattern collection. I’m making one with the leftovers from my Spotty Lottie (more fabric from the GFH) and a pair out of this lovely print I bought second hand in Dunedin recently. I aim to make a matching top for these to imply a jumpsuit without having to get naked to go wees.
Another boat neck knit top with this fabric from a local second hand store. It’s hard to see in this photo that where the diamonds intersect is green.
I also have a plan for Frocktover over at The Monthly Stitch too, but I will save that for now. Oh and there will be summer tops to come too. And clearly another pair of Alpi Chinos.
Oh I am so, so, so very excited by all this! Clearly I need to rethink having a job – it’s just taking too much time away from sewing.
