Year of the dog.

I like to document my goals to keep me moving forward and focused.

In 2018 I am doing another course with Susan Khalje to work on couture techniques and generally continuing to improve technically.

I want to make a jacket to learn soft tailoring, collars and roll lines, bound botton holes etc.


I had bought a beautiful boucle, and aimed to use marfy 3022, but after making it in a wool crepe, the button holes and jetted pocjkets just arent realistically going to work with boucle. I did think about using the style arc Janet jacket, but it lacks the jetted pockets, buttonhole, roll line/collar etc. So I’ve moved to plan B, but may well move on the C before she gets to Perth in March.


I did make marfy 3022 in preparation, as I desperately needed a black jacket ( that was before I kon maried my wardrobe), and Im not sure I love the jacket, so thinking of usibg a burda style blazer at present.

So this year, I’d like to make a jacket in the Khalje class, a boucle jacket, finish last years jacket, and a Alabama Chanin jacket.


I also want to finish my brooklyn tweed agnes knitting, make a pair of shoes, work on tousers for work,  and a pretty dress!

The dresses never seem to get made!

Im going to write aims evey season and reflect back on them.

Im goign to have more out than in fabric.

Im going on a RTW diet, as I should be able to make anythign I need.

Ramble over
