I always have so many ideas floating round in my head; few seem to be realised. I think this contributes to stashing as I get another idea which jumps to the front of the queue.
So I thought I’d make my plans more concrete to aid direction and minimise diversion. Hopefully this will maintain direction and help me stash less.
As you all know, I live under a hole in the ozone layer. Even though it is smaller than it has been since 1988, I’m going to use this as the reason I need swimwear with appropriate body coverage. Any other discussing may get controversial, and having a young daughther I am of body-hating vernacular. Additionally swimwear for me is a functional item of clothing, a string bikini isn’t gonna hold up to Perths dumping waves. (Really though, just wear what makes you comfortable, and I am comfortable well covered)
So I’m thinking hotpants, sportsbra and cycling vest all in swimwear lycra.
I’d love two complete sets.
I also recently bought this Jalie from seamstress fabrics which will be for less active occasions.
2. Work pants.
I desperately need some work pants. But I need to get over my lack of enthusiams for fitting.
The candidates are:
1. Closet Case Patterns Sasha trousers. 2. vogue something or other…. 3. Papercut Patterns Nyago, 4. Style Arc Willow pants. ( can you tell how keen I am?)
Is anything less fun to sew? I am in desperate need though. I have a heap of liberty lawn loitering, and I am trying to instigae a zero tolerance policy.
These are the contenders.
2 shorts, 2 longs and some white Grainline Larks, if I don’t have enough to make a Ogden.
4. A pretty dress.
I have some lovely linen from the stitch 56 closing sale and some ladder lace. I’m thnking a Tessuti Ruby with the lace insert in some sort of symmetrical pattern.
I have some other designer linen, and some designer silk. I’m thinking DKNY vouge (which I think now is OOP) and Tessuti patterns Lois.
And thats it, I dont have anything else stashed. If one of these can be sewn, Ill be delighted.
5. Susan Khalje.
I have to muslin a jacket before March. Im making marfy 3022 in Mednel Goldberg boucle. ( the current plan)
6. Selfless sewing
I owe my husband a button up shirt from last Christmas. But he doesn’t remember, so I might wipe that slate clean.
I owe a good friend a pair of Alexandria peg trousers for her June birthday. so really I should do this.
I’d love to see Princess Muddypuddles a dress for Christmas, but she’ll just get it muddy. So that’s last on the list.
