I changed my sewing plans to reflect the warmer weather. I think that I have sewing ADHD because I never stick to a plan. Mt current plans are to make 2 6Pacs since I don't own any warm weather clothes suitable for work and traveling. One collection will be skirts and twin sets. I need the cardigans for wearing in the clinic and I can whip them off when I come out into the heat. The second collection will contain 4 dresses and 2 cardigans. I'll be adding some extra tops to the collection to give it some variety.
Collection One - Basics
I was playing around with Polyvore and came up with this group for my first collection of basic garments. It is more than 6 pieces but all of the patterns are easy. I already own the black skirt and all of the shoes. My shoes are slightly different but the style is the same. The cardigans will have 3/4 sleeves and matching tank tops. All of the fabric except for the red will come from the stash.
I started sewing this weekend. So far I have made a black and white print pencil skirt - just need to add elastic, finish the vent and the hem. I cut out a black cardigan with 3/4 sleeves but didn't have enough for a top. I might have another fabric that I can use. Next up is a black & white white zebra print shell since the machines are threaded with white thread.
I'm going on a fabric shopping trip to NYC at the end of the month. My plan is to pick up some cotton/lycra knit for twin sets, a couple of floral pieces for skirts and whatever strikes my fancy. I haven't bought fabric since Lent started so this trip is my treat to me.
