I feel like I've finally gotten back into the sewing "groove" - feeling more familiar with the tools and skills, and it feels good! My goal, after joining in Me Made May, is to replace my wardrobe basics with nice handmade versions and get rid of all the cheap Target and Old Navy pieces I have right now.
These are the patterns I'm hoping to try and finish in the next couple months (ok, it'll probably take me until next fall to finish all of them but hey, a girl can dream right?):
1. I've got this free Plantain shirt from Deer & Doe all cut out on my table waiting for fabric!
2. I just discovered this awesome knit sweatshirt/tunic pattern from the CaliFaye Collection this week - and there are POCKETS. DONE. This would be so great dressed up with jeans, boots and a scarf for comfy fall work wear.
3. I haven't had good luck with working with woven fabric lately, but the Laurel dress from Colette might be easy enough to get to fit me right - and I love this modified version they published this week!
4. The Alder shirtdress from Grainline! It's a bit harder, but such a great wardrobe staple (and I've already conquered the button hole foot on my machine, so I feel like I could do this one!)
5. Tova shirt from Wiksten - I've admired this shirt for awhile, but I think I'll have to work up to this one...
6. Finally, I'd love to work my way up to the Minoru jacket from Sewaholic! There may be a trip happening in the fall, and I'd love to do this in time to take it along!
So, we'll see how far I actually get with all of this, or maybe I'll just skip around! :)
