I got a late start on sewing summer stuff and I really want to switch to fall, but I have four summer pieces already cut. (Nothing dampens my enthusiasm when starting a project more than cutting, so I cut all of these on the same day.)
I’m pretty excited about the list, with one exception, Simplicity 4509. A jacket, for a true beginner? We’ll see … Well, here’s the list:
This is the period of tops. My theme for these is Baby Steps :-)
- Burda 8050 (just gotta hem it and complete the side seams)
- Burda 8269 (This goes with Simplicity 4509. I’ve been making the same three tops for a couple of months and I need a change of pace.)
- Burda 7912
- Kwik Sew 3221
- McCall 5639
Conquering my fears and the quest for pants that fit. My seam ripper will be nearby at all times. I wonder how much muslin I’ll go through. I should discover which pattern brand fits me best. My guess is Kwik Sew followed by Burda.
- Burda 8444
- New Look 6434
- Kwik Sew 3385
- Vogue 8605
- Simplicity 2860
- Kwik Sew 3363
- Simplicity 4509 (wanna wear this one for Christmas with Burda 8269)
The season of the wardrobe … all Simplicity? I might throw in Butterick 5399.
- Simplicity 4503
- Simplicity 2552
- Simplicity 4014 (I’ll be rocking this for Easter, assuming I can get the rest of the fabric.)
Tops and dresses … apparently I like McCall and Simplicity for these.
It’s time for dresses …
