I love making to-do lists, but I don’t usually do it with my sewing projects. I like having the freedom to choose what to sew next, but the downside is that I often end up forgetting to make the garments that I really need. So, I’ve decided to write down my sewing plans for this season because this will help me to be more organized with my sewing, but also because it’s always nice to think about exciting new projects. Let’s start with the list! 😉
1. A party dress: The Georgia Dress (By Hand London)
BHL is one of my favourite pattern companies EVER. They make gorgeous designs with clear instructions (I made their Charlotte Skirt when I was a total beginner!). I love all their patterns, but some days ago I saw this version of the Georgia dress and now I’m convinced that I need it in my life! 😛
2. The perfect bodysuit: Nettie bodysuit (Closet Case Files)
I may be the only sewist in the world that hasn’t made a Nettie yet! I see super cool versions of this pattern every week, and I can’t get tired of it. I’m a big fan of Heather’s blog and I’ve always wanted to try her patterns. I’m sure I won’t be disappointed!
3. A Pencil Skirt: Fatale Sister Skirt (Vanessa Pouzet)
Perfect. Pencil. Skirt. Nothing more to say.
4. My first coat: Cascade Duffle Coat (Grainline Studio)
Coatmaking is a mysterious world for me. I actually own several BurdaStyle magazines with some great coat patterns in them, but Burda instructions aren’t for the faint of heart. I think I need a bit of hand holding here, so I looked for a cool pattern with good instructions. The Cascade Duffle coat ticks all the boxes: there’s even a sew along for it!
5. Some basic sweatshirts
I haven’t decided the pattern for them yet, but the Linden Sweatshirt seems like a good candidate! Does anyone have some more suggestions? 🙂
These are the 5 unavoidable sewing projects for this season! I’m sure you’ve noticed that all of them are pretty much wardrobe staples, and that’s because… I’m in the process of building a capsule wardrobe! I’m following the directions of the Wardrobe Architect and I’m really excited about it. I absolutely recommend it!
What are your sewing plans for this season? 🙂
