~ I want to use my new Simplicity patterns, not just store them but actually make garments from them!
4014 - This one has a wing collar jacket with a matching dress that has princess seams and a flared bottom.
4093 - Raglan sleeve jacket with a v-neck dress and tank, pants and skirt (first thought to make it up in a blue double knit.
4050 - a Duro dress with princess seams and kimono sleeves - Khaliah Ali pattern
~ Topstitching ideas from the new Liz Claiborne ad - maybe flip the facings back onto the front of the jacket - maybe use this for the jacket in S4014
~ to try sewing a complete wardrobe from one wardrobe pattern, again S4093 comes to mind. I mean I keep buying these wardrobe patterns shouldn't I use them as they were intended at least once!
~ I hate lapped zippers - why???? I also hate zippers in side seams. Why would you just invest all of that time and effort in a garment and have it open at an inappropriate time!???
~ maybe I shouldn't sew from a list this season. Maybe I should be a little more sponteneous or maybe not! *LOL*
~ I want to make a pledge to myself not to purchase any more fabric from Fabric Mart for the next three months. I mean a box of fabric a month from them for the last eight months is a bit much isn't it?
~ Why can't there be another sewing show on TV like Sew Perfect was? I miss the daily inspiration.
~ I need to finish my "Cashmere Dreams" pieces and the maroon/navy twinset from last winter.
~ I need to buy a three subject notebook for Fall/Winter 2006-2007. All this online blogging has caused me to not keep a Spring/Summer journal. I need a piece of paper filled with ideas... one section to list ideas to sew; one section to tape inspirational pictures in; and the last section to make lists and keep fabric swatches. Because won't these be living testimonials to my art when I no longer exist? Won't my daughters treasure these later?
Possible Future Sewing Ideas:
- a two piece dress and cardigan from the Eggplant knit from EOS using the my TNT burda cardigan and a burda t-shirt dress
- a blue rayon twill from FM for a bias flare skirt to coordinate with the rust colored silk blouse in my closet
- pink wool embroidered edge fabric for a flare skirt with a lining
- print cotton twill fabric panel for a skirt with brown moleskin for accents and a vest.
Welcome to my randomness....
