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.
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
