Just like the historical sewing fortnight (HSF), I made an everyday wear list for myself. I like comfortable clothes, and my colour palette is mostly limited to black, greys, and berry colours, sometimes shades of green.
Some outfits are half-done and need some editing, others are in the planning stage.
#1 The sheath dress: I have a nice Burda pattern for that, and the fabric as well.
#2 Wardrobe update: way back I made a simple skirt from wool and some heavy upholstery fabric. And I made a very big jacket with Victorian overtones which is half-finished. And now I don’t like the jacket very much anymore, which calls for a creative salvation process.
#3 Wardrobe update: a red skirt. No, it did not die. It just refused to come together in an outfit until now (see also #8)
#4 Skirt: I have no warm little black skirt (LBS), but I have the fabric. And inspiration such as this felt skirt.
#5 Wardrobe update: there’s a shirt and a green skirt which are done, and plans for a jacket, but I’m no longer sure how I want it to look.
#6 The grey skirt: there it is. I haven’t worn it since the wedding, so it clearly needs some styling.
#7 The night out: I have fabric for these leggings.
#8 The black jack(et): yes, I need one.
#9 The irritating case of making trousers: I really need to make a simple pattern for trousers.
#10 Wardrobe update: a green dress is being revived.
#11 The dark mori: simple and comfy.
#12 Wardrobe update: a maxi skirt.
#13 Dark mori layers: this shawl/poncho looks easy enough, but this one has a better shape..
#14 Romantic pullover. Knit for knat…
#15 Dark mori layers: striped grey knitwear for a sleeveless dress/tunic thingie.
#16 Accessories: loop scarves and a bag, small but nice.
#17 Dark mori layers: voluminous skirt (doubles as petticoat)
#18 Dark mori layers: sleeveless (under)dress with lace seam. Useful also for hot summers.
#19 A quilted vest: a vest like this one, but made from wool/felt.
#20 Wardrobe update: a maxi dress.
#21 Recycling: I turned an XL men’s long skirt into a me-sized short skirt. Bonus: it has pockets!
#22 A coat: I like this one als well as this coat pattern.
#23 skirts: DIY bubble skirts and a stripey skirt I only sew because I want to test a theory.
#24 a piece from Pattern Magic: Stretch fabric.
