What are your spring sewing plans?
So I’m finally ready to get back into the swing of sewing, which probably has a lot to do with all the snow melting outside! I’ve pulled a few patterns from my pattern stash I’d optimistically like to finish this spring. I say optimistically because I never finish these sewing to do lists, but they do help to keep me on track!
First thing I’d like to sew is Simplicity 1810. I actually like all these patterns and think they work well together. I’m going to try version B first. It’s got ties that are inset into the darts and seems very wearable! I’m making it in a silky black and white floral.
Next is Simplicity 1620. The only piece I’m really interested in is the belted jacket. It’s something that if I make in a neutral color I can wear with a lot of my spring stuff!
Confession, I’ve never actually made a bag before, or many accessories for that matter. But I’m in desperate need of a yoga bag, so this pattern looks like it’ll fit the bill. I have some “vegan” leather I could use for the accents as well.
I had a lot of fit problems with zinnia last time I sewed it and really want to try and solve them. It has the possibility to really be a good staple piece if I can get it right.
Chantilly, a pattern I’ve had for a very long time but never attempted. Time to get cracking I suppose. Plus it really screams spring to me. I can see it made up in a really lovely pastel.
Shorts! I haven’t owned a pair since middle school. But these seem pretty flattering and easy to wear. I’m worried about fitting my butt though to be honest. I have a pretty massive glutes so this should be some interesting fitting.
More pants! These are either going to be amazing or terrible.
Total icing dress right here. But how cute is this pattern? Wouldn’t it be an amazing base for julia bobbins mad men challenge? So very Betty.
I also need to finish up my sew bossy swap. See terrible with deadlines!
My brother is having a formal wedding in april, I have nothing to wear and a total lack of budget to speak of. I’m thinking this pattern would be a good choice if I can find enough fabric at a decent price.
