Hi there and a very happy new year to you all!
After looking back at what worked and didn’t work so well in 2016 its time to look forward to what is coming next!Now that we are settled in Brighton and the huge upheaval of new job and moving are out of the way I have been enjoying having a bit more time for sewing again and I would like to challenge myself a little more and take some risks! I don’t want to stop sewing the basics that work for me, but I would also like to try a few different things this year.
So here is my 2017makenine – nine patterns that I am hoping to sew in the coming year.
I already have several of these patterns and some of the fabric I want to use. I like that some are old favourites – such as Grainline Hemlock – which I have made a million times already, but with the new variation of the split hem. Some are (hopefully) quite straightforward – such as the Rosari skirt, but will hopefully be a new TNT pattern. Some are going to push me on fitting – the Port trousers and Ginger jeans will be a challenge I think, but my very well-loved Sewoverit Ultimate trousers are wearing out and I need an update! Finally there are some I don’t quite know if they will work or not – the Farrow dress is a different silhouette for me and could end up looking maternity or sack, but I want to give it a go!
I like that together they could almost form a capsule wardrobe – I might need to buy some more fabric of course…
Can’t wait to get started – what do you have planned for the coming year?
