I don't know about you, but I almost always sew on a whim, without much planning. I usually don't like to feel "bound" to do something, because I start to feel under pressure and start procrastinating more than usual. But by doing this, I waste a lot of time because I often end up having the actual time to cut or to sew, but finding myself without a schedule, I just abandon myself to laziness and find something else to do.
So, I decided to try something new and make a little plan of the next few things I want to sew.
I hope I can stick to it. If I don't, at least I had a lot of fun with the technical drawings.
First off, the next entry for the Sew Colette 2.0. sewalong. We're tackling the Macaron pattern (my favorite ever, btw). I want to do something different from my first two versions of this dress, something dark and more on the dressy side. So I'm going to use this cotton with a geometric-y ethnic-y print as main fabric paired with black georgette for the upper part. I'm also adding a peter pan collar because I've been obsessing with this idea since seeing this.
This is already on my cutting table, but I'm having troubles with the fit. It's the Sonja dress by Salme patterns (available as a free download!) and I've already made two ill-fitting muslins, but I think I might be almost there.
Next, a Pendrell blouse with a peter pan collar. The print will channel my inner cougar, but I'm confident I can pull it off.
I couldn't make a clear decision for this silk georgette... a Pendrell blouse or a Grainline Tiny Pocket tank with buttons down the front? I guess I'll see how it goes with my previous Pendrell and go from there.
Finally, a bit of a question mark. I have some doubts about making another Hazel dress with criss-crossed straps with this fabric because a. the stripes are quite small and will be hell to match and b. I don't know if I can pull off a pink dress. But it's what I envisioned as soon as I saw this fabric. We'll see.
