Make Nine challenge for 2018

2018MakeNine

I read about the #2018MakeNine via Rochelle over at Lucky Lucille.  If you want to see what others have picked use the hashtag #2018makenine over on on instagram.  Below are my 9 pattern choices.

Project 1, Vogue 9103 summer dress.  This dress has some nice fitting details, is easy to make and there for once fitting it done quick to make.  I am thinking view C or F as they are a good midi length.

Project 2, McCalls 6600.  A simple shirt-waister style that will be great for spring or autumn, thinking a light weight corduroy or dutch wax fabric.

Project 3, the ultimate pencil skirt.  I love this super easy and fast skirt, perfect all year round depending on the fabric.  My thoughts are heading spring/summer in a jersey, so would be a great everyday basic.

Project 4, the box shirt. A super simple shape and perfect to wear with the pencil skirt or jeans, excellent every day basic for spring, summer & autumn.

Project 5, the holiday shirt & top.  Another Maker’s Atelier pattern, again super easy to wear and would cover spring, summer & autumn.

Project 6, simplicity 8014.  A shirt dress that made me think of Kirstie Allsopp and Samantha Sung, although a little more streamlined around the waist.  Again this has good options for wearing all year round, depending on the fabric I use.

Project 7, the Nell shirt.  I have been wanting to make this shirt and even have the fabric ready!  A dear friend gave me around 5 metres of a very beautiful white window pane cotton shirting.  This would be lovely for spring, although a perfect all year staple.

Project 8, simplicity 1059.  Thinking about what I need in my wardrobe, I need a couple of more formal dresses and thought this would be lovely in a silk.

Project 9, simplicity 8013.  Again this is another evening dress, have seen a few versions made and adored Marcy Harriell version.

I don’t have a fabric stash to raid, so will be buying fabrics as I go along.  Have a rough order to work though, the maker’s atelier patterns and a shirt dress I’d like to have done by June for my holiday.  One more dressy dress for May.  I’ll be posting my progress here and over in instagram with the #2018makenine and I’m @cloth_scissors_thread
