Sewing queue

Once again I’m planning things to make. Most of these projects are simple and should not take more than a couple of hours each. Muslin time (for the pants) not included.

First, ready to cut is this Simplicity wrap top. Valerie (a sewing friend I met through the lingerie sew along) gave this pattern to me. She has made several already and it should be easy to make. It will be the red fabric in the picture and will be combined with the rtw skirt on the left. The flash made the fabric lighten up a bit, in reality it’s the same color as the darker red in the skirt.

Further I absolutely need a couple of pants. I’ve been postponing this as I want to try to make a basic pattern without wrinkles. Will be a couple of muslins for sure. The black and grey pinstripe will be pants, though the pattern is not sure, just took a picture to indicate ‘pants’.

The second fabric from the left has a few wrinkles in the fabric, and will be the Patrones blouse I showed earlier. The purple in the center will be a New Look cardigan. I made it a few weeks ago in the same fabric in grey and that one will probably be worn out at the end of the winter. It’s soooo comfortable that I take it out of the closet very often. And the last one is a knit for which I have not decided on a pattern yet. Something basic probably.

And something new in the sidebar: a slideshow with inspiration pictures I collected.

  1. I'm curious to see the outcome of the red top. The 5 fabrics you show are beautiful. I like the colourscheme and how there seems to be a bit of pink shine in each one of them (except the black one of course). They'll match very well! Good luck with choosing the fifth pattern.

  2. I bought a top like the proposed red top last year in Hong Kong in a nice teal colour. I was debating at the time - do I need it? Is it too funky? Well I am glad I did buy it as the look is everywhere now. All your plans look good! Well co-ordinated too :)

  3. Sigrid, I am looking forward to seeing how you do your pants muslin. From the blogs I've looked at it seems almost as difficult as making a bra pattern fit! Good luck! Lovely fabrics too - I like the grey - black - wine red combo.

  4. I like your plan -- and I can't wait to see more of the process and outcome.
    And I like the colors: grey and berry tones (my colors, too).

  10. Oh, that wrap is fab! I keep seeing that style in the department stores where I live so I can't wait to see what you whip up.
