My summer holiday sewing plans

It’s been a while since I last sewed or blogged, but it’s the summer holidays so I have a lot more free time. Hopefully, I’ll spend part of this time sewing!

I’ve got soooo many projects that I want to make over the next 5 or 6 weeks! I thought that maybe if I wrote a blog post, it might inspire me to get cracking on them! Some of these have been on  my to-do list for a while!

summer sewingHere are my plans in no particular order…

Sew Over It – Ultimate trousers in black and white stretch cotton. I’ve had this to make for a couple of years now! I’ve also bought the online class so I plan on completing it this summer!

Rosy Pena Patterns – Chloe Sweatshirt in mustard sweatshirt fabric. I LOVE this pattern!! This will be the third one I’ve made and I plan on making several more in time for winter!

Sew Over It – Molly Top in black and white stripe jersey. I’ve made the Molly dress before and now I want a top. This should be a quick make. I’m thinking of squaring off the hem to make it easier.

Sew Over It – Ultimate Shift dress in green floral/leopard crepe. I’ve had this fabric for ages and I love it. I couldn’t decide what to make with it but think I’m going to try the shift dress!

Nina Lee – Portobello Trousers in stripy crepe. This is another project I’ve been planning for ages. It’s also on my make nine for this year!

myosotis fabric

Deer and Doe -Myosotis Dress in white crepe. I’m totally ripping off Fiona Parker’s (from Diary of a Chainstitcher) version. She made the most beautiful white crepe dress and I want one exactly the same!

Sew Over It – Eve dress in floral stretch crepe. Another plan I’ve had for a while. I love this dress so much I’m almost scared to make it in case it goes wrong! This another of my make nine plans as well!
Libby shirt fabric

Sew Over It – Libby Shirt in floral crepe. I saw this fabric and loved it. Then I saw this shirt pattern and loved it. The only problem is I still can’t do buttonholes, which is a shame because I’m most excited about this!

Megan Nielsen – Acacia knickers in any scraps! I need new knickers so I thought I’d use this pattern for any jersey scraps I have!

I also want to complete my Cocoon coat as well. It just needs hemming and the cuffs finishing.

These are my main plans but as usual, I have lots more things in my head but I don’t have fabric for yet. I’ve told myself, if I can make a dent in these plans then I’m allowed to buy more fabric!
