I have a massive wish list of things that I want to make but figured if I could focus on just a handful of items I'd be more likely to get them done!
So here's five things that I'm hoping to sew up over the rest of April:
First up is a new skirt for work. It's Vogue 1170, a Rachel Comey pattern from a few years back. It's no longer listed on Vogue's website but you can pick it up on Etsy or Ebay easily enough. I'm planning on making it up in a beautiful Italian wool that I bought at Tessuti several years ago.
The Birkin Flares are one of my #2017makenine picks and something that I've been wanting to make for a couple of years. These will be a great addition to my weekend wardrobe and will likely make an appearance for casual Friday at work too.
I fell hard for this beautiful viscose poplin from Blackbird Fabrics and all I could think of was making the Grainline Archer shirt. Also, I need tops for work so this seems like a winner.
Next up I'm planning to make Vogue 1460 in a gorgeous denim coloured merino jersey from The Fabric Store. A warm, cosy winter work dress.
My last planned make is Megan Nielsen's Rowan body suit - colour and style as per the picture below. I layer all my clothes in winter so I think this will be a winner.
If I'm crazy productive my two bonus projects will be a Tessuti Sydney jacket in a gorgeous charcoal marle boiled wool and a pair of navy stretch cotton Ginger (jeans) pants. I'm pretty excited by all these projects so I hope I can them all sewn up.
