This email is the first part of my sewing goals. The first part, I hear you cry? Yes, I have so many WIPs and UFOs and ideas and plans and goals, that I need to further categorise the sewing posts into separate sections. Cripes. Here goes...
Sewing for ME: Things already underway (oldest to youngest)
Silky Denim Shirt DressThis is one of my oldest WIPs and only maybe the second thing I ever sewed (or am sewing..) for myself to wear. It's McCalls M5847 (view A).
I need to revisit this one and try it on again. I think I had it mostly done, bar some hideous hand sewing on the facing and making of button holes. Maybe some other finishing on the armholes. Anyway - I should really see if it's worth it and finish or officially abandon. Perhaps attempt two in the future in a different, more suitable fabric :)
Renfrew RefinementsThis isn't really a work in progress, as I have made one "muslin" version (below) and not yet started the next.
I made this as a test and want to make another in some black similar weight fabric which I bought ages ago. I still have a few fitting issues as dissected in my post about this one and would like to get this to a TNT state - as I can imagine making many of these and altering it to make even more!
My first bra:This is the pin-up girls Classic Bra (line drawing here). I bought the kit in pink and chocolate and have cut out the pink. I really really want to learn to make my own underwear (though apparently not so much that I didn't let myself get distracted by trousers...)
Trousers - Tessuti Chloe Pants:I love this pattern, and not just because they obviously named it for me.
Copy Dress:I bought a lovely dress last time I went to Melbourne (Sportscraft) and would like to try and make up a pattern for something similar. I also got some silk from Victoria market (should that read "silk"? Probably...). I have the start of a pattern so need to muslin and fiddle and so forth.
Apron:I have the fabric and a pattern in my head - last on the list as I already have at least 3 aprons :)
I think that's a pretty modest list, the list for the house stuff and the kids stuff will follow soon!
