#2017MAKENINE


A wonderful initiative started by Rochelle of LuckyLucille.com, I will be taking part in #2017MAKENINE, a challenge to the sewing community to make more and wear more of what they love. Keep up with my progress on social media and here on the blog!

My original 9 projects:

- Anderson Blouse, Bob Mackie Dress, Off Shoulder Dress has been replaced by the Simplicity 4141 (3pc suit)
- Betty Dress has been replaced by the Eve Dress
- Sophia Skirt has been replaced by Simplicity 1688 
- Vintage Cape has been replaced by Simplicity 0547 Vest
- Lisette Coat has been replaced by Simplicity 1467 Pants


MY SEWING PATTERN COLLECTION
I've started digitalizing and cataloging my collection of sewing patterns over on Flickr, many of which are retro and vintage. Feel free to browse through for inspiration. Use the left - right arrows on the image below or to go to my album to see it all on one page.

PROJECT PLANNING


This is the template I made and use to plan my own sewing projects, divided into seasons and with 6 projects for the year. It gives me a quick look at what I need to prep for the months ahead. You can write or draw your projects directly in the boxes or use a small sticky note for those ideas that aren't permanent yet.


Feel free to print you for yourself.

FREE SEWING PATTERNS
Here are a list of free downloadable PDF sewing patterns that you can try to get you started with your sewing journey. I've filtered through the vast list on the web and narrowed down to the ones that I think are both stylish and functional. Links will take you to the corresponding website. Good luck!
