I am behind in planning my summer essentials sew along. Though I have been planning away in my head. The list divides between those items I already have fabric and pattern for, and those which I only have patterns for and no fabric.
I have already made this dress using Amy Butler's Anna Tunic pattern.
Tees, tunic and blouses:
I have a big gap for white tops in my wardrobe. I am half way through making a Simplicity 2259 top in white with a placket and box pleating.
I also plan a pinky-rust top with giant sunflowers on it from this cotton lawn bought on ebay.
Clamdiggers and co
I have some dark blue cotton and there is just enough for a pair of cropped trousers. I want to make something that will be versatile and go with my many patterned tops. As I already own it, I am using the Lisette for Simplicity 2259Portfolio trouser pattern. Just to see what it is like. ISweet and sassy skirts
I have made my pink pillowcase skirt but am also hoping to make a skirt from my duvet cover fabric pictured above. I have changed my mind many times about what skirt to sew. I was thinking of a reversible wrap skirt with green and white polka dots on the reverse. Then I found this skirt pdf pattern from Anna Maria Horner. Once I read through the instructions I realised I needed lining fabric. Obviously it is meant to be that I make this skirt as I then went into the local charity shop and found a large piece of green, white and navy stripey lining fabric! For £2.
Maybe because the weather isn't warm, but I keep wanting to have a loose-ish pullover top, maybe a hoodie, probably with pockets. I need to go on a fabric hunt for this. I was thinking of using a pattern from the Sew-U Home Stretch book.
Another dress: I have some that I really want to try out - the traveller dress by Lisette for Simplicity. I just don't have any fabric.
So that is:
white top - started
sunflower top - started
pair blue cropped trousers - started
pink scalloped skirt - completed
floral skirt - pattern and fabric
traveller dress - pattern only
sundress - completed
Cover-up Hoodie- no fabric
I could carry on planning fir ever, but am going to stop myself here. I am not sure if this is too much already.
