Hey guys! Today I am sharing some of the projects I would like to work on next!
Most of these I have chosen to fit with my current wardrobe - things that are missing, spaces to fill.. which seems to be pretty constant when you try not to buy anything rtw. So far this summer I have been making quite a few separates so that I can mix and match them.. you can see my capsule wardrobe post here. So this time, I have some great summery dresses lined up, and a couple more basics to replace things that are wearing out fast! :) See below for my sewing plans..
Merchant & Mills Fielder Top:
Miss Maude has an amazing version of this, which has definitely inspired me to make my own! Ill probably be pondering over different fabric choices for a while yet while I sew a few other projects - but i just love the simplicity of the Fielder Top - and the possibility of using a mix of woven and knit fabrics together. Perfect for summer!
Sew House Seven Nehalem Pants:
These great fisherman style pants from Sew House Seven look amazing - and I managed to eak these out of 1.5m of linen I had (with an additional contrasting waist piece).. all cut out and waiting to be sewn next!
Named Patterns Kielo Wrap Dress:
I have been lusting after this Named Patterns Kielo for ages, but since it uses a lot of fabric I was waiting until I had something in the stash that would work well! I found two lots of woven fabric perfect for the job (the pattern is meant for knits, but I am going to try and make it work with woven) - the rust/gold colour fabric on the left is left over from a fashion brand sale ($8 a metre!), and the other is from a second hand shop. I have 4m of these beauties each!
Grainline Studios Farrow Dress:
I recently bought some pre washed linen online second hand (originally from the fabric store..) thanks who ever sold it to me!! Its destined to become a Farrow Dress by Grainline Studios or something similar! I love the pockets sneaked into the seam like this.. so cool!
I do actually have a couple of other works in progress (ie. cut out and ready to go but not sewn) but these have been waiting in the wings for a while.. and I suspect might be waiting a little longer! Opps. A Doe and Deer Sureau Dress and a Blue Prints for Sewing A Frame Skirt. Both really cute patterns which I love but just got sidetracked! Best get to these soon..
That's all for now! Happy Sewing :)
