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 for Simplicity 2648

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

One thought on “Starting a New Project: Simplicity 2648

  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.
