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