Winter is upon us, and there's a blanket of white snow now. So, I'm definitely not in the mood for sewing summer dresses. In addition to knitting, I've been thinking about planning out what to sew this winter. Here are a few of my ideas. I'm not sure if I'll sew them all but seeing as winter is the longest season for us; it's not entirely impossible.
The first one is McCall's 7014. I've actually just started "muslining" this one. I'm doing view A, which is the sleeveless straight skirt variation. I'm also interested in view C and D or maybe even view A with sleeves. This is a lined dress which, when made with wool and paired with cozy leotards would be perfect for winter!
Speaking of vintage, I really love vintage jackets. In particular, 1940s jackets. There are no modern patterns that can compare. 1940's jackets are very flattering. They button up higher and have a more fitted feminine shape. I have this pattern that I used to make my vintage wool skirt in a cashmere wool fabric. I believe I have enough of that fabric to make the matching jacket. I definitely would make the jacket on the left.
That's about it for now. Things may change, and I don't think I'll finish all of these projects especially with my knitting and quilting on the side. But at least I have a general guide, so there will always be something on my sewing table during the winter.
Here's a photo of some of my succulents planted together in a little community. They seem pretty happy together, and they keep me company in my sewing room.
