So without further ado, may I present my seasonal sewing brain-dump?
Top of the queue, with no excuse available:
Trousers in chocolate brown / lilac pinstriped cotton: pattern TICK, fabric TICK
Plaid pintucked Japanese pattern tunic: pattern TICK, fabric TICK
Pinstripe wool Rockabilly skirt: pattern TICK, fabric TICK
Eva Dress 1940's trousers: pattern TICK, fabric TICKPendrell blouse: pattern TICK, fabric TICK
In my peripheral vision:
Black cotton sateen wiggle dress / skirt: pattern ON WAY, fabric TICK
Brown babycord /silver sequins wiggle dress: pattern ON WAY, fabric TICK
Betsey Johnson 1970's coat: pattern TICK, fabric NOPE.... OK, so I might have to buy some!
The pattern that is on its way is truly fabulous - I hope I can make it work! I have also ordered a few lengths of grosgrain ribbon for waistband-reinforcements, to avoid that mid-project slump when I realise I don't have everything I need to hand: it's not as if I can "pop out to the shop" whenever I feel like it!
The more I think about it, the more I think a self-stitched lifestyle is the way for me to go. It is really rather exciting! Roll on 2011!
