In preparation, I created a pinterest board, and have thought about areas my wardrobe lacks.
It's a bit ambitious, but I'm ready to tackle this sewing! I often find myself sort of wheeling at the end of a project, wondering where to go next. I don't think I'll actually get all of these items sewn, but they're good projects to have on the list.
I still need to go through my stash to figure out fabric options, but I think I'm going to try and sew mostly out of stash. That's the point, right?
For the tops and blouses, I've already completed one violet, which I need to post about.
The vintage jacket has been a work in progress for a very long time. I would like to put a lining in it. I just need to cut said lining, install and hem. Then the jacket is finished!
I recently won a giveaway over at Presser Foot Propaganada, which was the sweet scallop short pattern from pattern runway. I am in love! I also want to create a pair of sailor shorts, and a hacked high-waisted skirt that would feature a crown shaped waistband and suspenders.
Lastly, I want to make two crinolines, each a different length. I've got several fancy dresses in my closet already that could really use a little bit of oomph underneath. I'll also need a crinoline for the madmen dress.
I had a lot of fun creating vector imagines of the line drawings I found on the internet and putting these boards together. They look a lot more attractive than the rudimentary mock-ups I sketched. I can sew, but I'm not an illustrator!
