April makes and May plans

April was another rubbish sewing month for me! Sometimes life just gets in the way!

kalle shirt dress complete

I only completed one item and that was my Kalle Shirt Dress from Closet Case Patterns. I haven’t blogged it yet, but I enjoyed making it. This was the first Closet Case Patterns pattern that I’ve used and was easy to follow. Making a shirt dress was a lot easier than I imagined!

I’ve also nearly completed my Sew Over It Cocoon Coat. It just needs the cuffs and hems doing and then it’ll be finished. Just in time for summer!

Hopefully,  May will be a more successful month.

cocoon coat

My first plan is to finish the Cocoon coat. It needs to be finished this month!

summer tops fabric

I also plan on  making 3 summer tops. I have 3 viscose fabrics and I plan on making Ogden camis or Sew Over It’s Silk cami top with them. At the moment, the plan is to make 2 Ogdens and 1 silk cami. My plans could change!

chloe sweatshirt

I definitely want to make the Chloe sweatshirt from Rosy Pena Patterns for my friend this month. This is a belated Christmas present and has been on my plans list every month ever since! I love this pattern so much. It’ll probably make me want to make a bunch more for myself!

portobello trousers

My final plan is to make a striped pair of Portobello Trousers from Nina Lee. I bought some stripy crepe a while ago with this specific pattern in mind and I keep seeing stripy trousers in all the high street stores. Perfect on trend pattern!

As usual, I have a sewing wishlist miles long and loads more ideas so something else may end up getting made as well!
