Since working on sewing myself a more 'wearable' wardrobe I have discovered a real gap in my wardrobe for the basics. And so I have a 'to sew' list, a handful of basic bits and bobs my me made wardrobe is lacking. And so with this in mind here are some fabrics I have been eyeing up and may try to get my hands on a few of them at some point this weekend...
My current sewing to do/wish list:
1. A tube skirt, striped or plain
2. A plain slouchy cardigan in a warm knit
3. Bright jeggings
4. A sequin mini skirt
5. A pair of plain vest tops
6. A lace tee
7. Wild card: A bikini? Will I ever? Time will tell
Now I am aware wish lists are called wish lists for a reason, and I will be lucky to make maybe half of these items, but every girl needs some inspo, right? All fabric images in this post are from fabricland.co.uk.
First, a simple tube skirt is a must to pair with blouses and tops of all sorts, so I need less than a meter of black/navy, or maybe a bright heavy weight jersey. Cheap as chips and simple to sew, or so I hope.
'Cause I would obvs look like this, ahem...
Perhaps a stripey tube/pencil skirt would be a cute option too...
Next, a slouchy cardigan, in a camel or grey perhaps, any neutral not too dark to be worn in the summer.
Some bright jeggings, perhaps in an apple colour, would be pretty cool and comfy. I have a good basic pattern with an ever so flattering elasticated waist, will need some stretchy flippin denim for these bad boys!
A sequin mini skirt, picture based blog post pondering the issues surrounding this to be found here.
Some basic, neutral vests are sorely needed in my handmade arsenal, perhaps in cream or grey, or black even?
A lacey tee I have long be lusting after, but this will require some stretch lace of the dance wear variety.
And lastly a bikini, that will probably never be made but I find usual bikinis rather too revealing in certain areas, and so to design and make my own is a bit of an ambition of mine.
And this is how I'll look, oh yes...
So, any bets on how much I will actually end up sewing before I get distracted by some other zany scheme? Time will tell...
