New Years is a wonderful time for reflection. I created a record 84 garments in 2016 and only purchased three ready-to-wear garments. I really want to work on refining my style more as my skills develop.
My sewing goals for 2017 are:
-Make fewer basics and work on more time-consuming pieces
-Make a men’s shirt (I’ve already booked into a class for this)
– Sew with leather
Papercut Sea bell dress by Papercut in a navy stretch cotton
Seamwork Winona in Burgundy knit
Alder shirt dress with side pockets using fabric from Melbourne
Bonn shirt (or dress) in printed bird cotton
Named Kielo Black stretch Silk
Butterick B6169 dress with tie
Grainline Archer Shirt (cut out)
Scout Tee or similar in Liberty Print
Deer and Doe Green printed Melilot Blouse
Style Arc Blair shirt in a lightweight denim
Closet Case Files Nettie bodysuit T shirt in grey knit
Seamwork Elmira wrap cardi in deep green merino (cut out)
Megan Nielsen Axel Skirt two versions one in black with the front split the other in grey with front ties (already cut out)
A couple more V1247 skirts
Coats & Jackets:
Butterick zip up bomber jacket style number B6169 in navy cotton twill
Deer and Doe Safran Pants as stretch pants and as jeans
Tailored pants – vintage pattern in grey wool
Genoa tote as a lunch bag and one in leather
My key colour pallet is Navy, Black, Grey, Green, Burgundy.
I’m excited to get started on sewing some new pieces for my closet.
Thank you for following my journey.
