When I head off to Sewjourn I usually take a box full of pre-cut garments with me, just waiting to be assembled. This time I decided to take the pressure off a little and just take fabric and patterns. These are some of the patterns I’m considering.
I adore the look of this dress. It is designed for drapey knits or soft wovens. Check out the line drawings.
Nice details with the shirring across the bust, and it is fitted enough in the upper body to be flattering. Love the draped pockets too! Actually, I have high hopes for this pattern. Because the weather is rapidly cooling down here, I’m only planning on sewing garments with sleeves or ones that can be layered over sleeves. Other dresses under consideration are these:
I’ve had these two Hot Patterns in the stash for a while – they have to be traced before use, and you know how much I hate tracing patterns! Hence them still being in the stash unused. Take note for future reference!
How about some Jalie tops and cardigans?
And because it is getting pretty cold, I should consider a cape or a jacket.
Clearly, I have absolutely no intention of trying to sew all of these patterns while I am away! They are a nice selection to take with me so that I can sew as the mood strikes. And despite my theory of not cutting out in advance, I noticed this afternoon that I have almost filled my cut-out-awaiting-to-be-sewn box. Which I suppose I will also take with me! Now that I’ve got the patterns sorted, I’d better move on to the fabrics…
