So let's recap...
I ordered 11 yards of this fabric:
I am going to add a ltwt. taupe wool crepe that is in the collection...as an aside, do you know several years ago I counted how many different colors of wool crepe were in my collection and I totalled 16 - 16! I don't think that many still reside there but believe me when I tell you there is still plenty of depth! *LOL*
The jump-off pattern will be Vogue 7180:
And the garments I want to make are:
1. Jacket from vintage pattern
2. Dress from vintage pattern with taupe wool crepe top
3. Another dress - possibly a variation of Butterick 5399
4. TNT pants - wide or flare leg
5. TNT Straight Skirt
6. Sleeveless version of Vogue 8118 out of a black sandwashed silk
7. Black silk jersey version of Vogue 9904
All fabrics are from the collection except for the newly purchased goods from Fabric Mart.
It seems like an ambitious plan but I have made 7 garments before in one month and this is the month of Thanksgiving with a 4-day weekend...and Thanksgiving is NEVER at my house! *LOL* I always go to family's house to eat and enjoy and come home! And since my portion of the meal always comes directly from the grocery store...I'm in charge of beverages and rolls...Thanksgiving is always free sewing time!
So I think my plan is very doable and it would be nice to have a new complement of outfits to wear into December! I will finish up another cardigan or two and then I'm onto November Sewing which I'm calling "60's Mod in an Election Year!"
