No resolutions, but I’m going to focus on the number 18 this year for obvious reasons. Over the last couple of years I have bought lots of fabric, clothes, shoes and bags. This year I want to enjoy and use what I have. So my goal is to sew at least 18 items of clothing from my existing fabric collection. I can’t achieve buying nothing so I want to buy 18 or less items of clothing, shoes, bags or fabric. I’ll exclude spending with birthday and Christmas money, and buying lingerie, socks and pyjamas.
My cuurent fabric collection according to Cora is 90 metres.
I could do with buying no patterns, but maybe I should say no more than 18 patterns, sewing magazines or books.
Ive enjoyed #memademay, #bpsewvember, the #sewing togetherforsummer shirt dress challenges. Unfortunately I didn’t have enough time and energy for #thelittlereddress this year. The #sipandsewwas a worthy cause but stressful as it took me three attempts. This year I’d like to do the shirt dress and red dress challenge, I’ve already got ideas and fabric!
I want to make the two Named Pilvi dresses that I never got round to making last year. Other ideas for using my fabric collection include grainline archers with these fabrics . So I’ll be a perfect shirt maker after that!
An oraguse Amsterdam blazer in navy and black taffeta
The Helsinki oraguse top in this coral white and grey stretch fabric.
The papercut coppelia wrap top in liberty black and floral jersey.
That will do to start with! I’m sure I’ll change my mind along the way.
I’m giving up blogging for a while, and will document my makes using a notebook or Instagram. Bye for now!
