Wardrobe Planning

Inspired by A Good Wardrobe, I've decided to make a list of the items I'd like to sew.

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?

I've got the fabric already for the madmen challenge dress, and that's going to be the next project I tackle.

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!
