Starting a New Project: Simplicity 2648

I’ve recently come to the conclusion that I am outgrowing my current wardrobe.  Not in size, but in personality and functionality.  I’ve lived in jeans, t-shirts, and fleece jackets for the last several years.  I have no problem with the jeans, I think they are among the most versatile pants.  But I have no need for another boxy fleece jacket that doesn’t really even fit very well.  So, what does this mean to you, you may ask?  Well, in a nutshell it means that you’ll be seeing lots of clothes in the coming weeks.

My to-sew list includes two dresses, a skirt, two tops, a  jacket, and a pair of jeans (not necessarily in that order).  I’ve been going back and forth for several weeks about which project to start.  Simplicity 2646 finally won that debate, simply because I need a dress to wear to a wedding in two weeks.

I’m making view c, but without the waist buckle so that I can wear it with or without a belt, depending on the outfit in a stretch jersey ITY knit from fabric.com.

Fabric for Simplicity 2648

My goal is to get the fabric cut today, and to have the dress sewn by Saturday.

  1. I’ve have the same thoughts about my wardrobe recently. I just don’t like most of it! That’s what I love about being able to sew–I can make just about anything I dream up! Within reason, of course! I’m hardly a superstar sewist.
