I should have thought of this earlier, but I don’t think it’s too late to post my New Year’s resolutions regarding sewing. Here they are!
1. I want to try my hand at pants! Particularly I need some skinny jeans, and a pair of khakis for work. I already have the fabric, so it’s just a matter of when to do what!
2. I’m going to try to make a mini-wardrobe– a bunch of pieces that can be mixed and matched. I would like to have lots of options in a small number of pieces. This will most likely incorporate my jeans 🙂 I don’t have many ideas right now, but I do have some great coordinating fabrics, so I think I’ll be able to figure something out!
3. I want to expand my skill set! I want to try things that are challenging, not just easy and quick. This started with my suit!!! I’d like to make all different kinds of pieces, rather than just my usual dresses 🙂 Hopefully this will include: basic pants as mentioned above, some nice work skirts/pants, a jean skirt, tops of different styles, a versatile jacket or two, and a nice winter coat! Since these are the kinds of things that I wear most frequently, this is what I’m going to try to make.
Happy Sewing! (and don’t forget to VOTE until Sunday)
